Turks of Spain

Name: Turks of Spain

Turkey is considered to be a “link” between Asia and the West. Some would like for Turkey to become part of the European Union, and thus become more Western. In recent years, Turks have been more inclined to favor their Islamic past. Turks who have migrated to Spain live mainly in Barcelona, Madrid and Alicante. Turks have been Sunni Muslim for centuries. They are not that devout, but Islam is a non-negotiable part of their culture. Thus, to turn away from Islam, even for a marginal Muslim, is unacceptable.

Prayer Points:

  • Pray that churches and mission organizations will accept the challenge of reaching the Turks in Spain.
  • Ask God to give Turkish believers boldness to share the Gospel with Turks in Spain.
  • Pray that God would grant wisdom and favor to mission agencies focusing on the Turks.
  • Ask the Lord to save key leaders among the Turks who will boldly influence their people to give Jesus a chance to transform their lives and communities.
  • Pray that many Turks living in Spain will be reached with the Gospel and will take it back to Turkey.
