Answer to Prayer
Increased openness, if only on a legal level, as Greece comes to terms with the existence of large minorities in their midst and as the EU insists on increased religious liberties.
Challenge for Prayer
Greece’s economic and social travails of the past few years have caused much uncertainty, upheaval and disruption. The massive deficit and debt, the crisis of the Euro and the threat of financial meltdown regardless of what actions are taken cause fingers of blame to point in all directions. Protests and riots are increasingly common and frequently violent. Regardless of how low the Greek economy must sink until it hits rock-bottom, it has amounted to a genuine shaking of the nation’s foundations. Pray that such shaking might drive the nation to cry out to God rather than to trust in the obviously flawed financial solutions offered by economists and politicians.
