Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan and the largest city in Central Asia, is the main economic and cultural center of the region. After falling to Arabs in the 8th century, Uzbekistan was seized by the Mongols in the Middle Ages, and finally gained its independence after the dissolution of the USSR in 1991.
Since then, Uzbekistan has dramatically improved in most aspects of life, even being awarded the world’s most improved economy in 2019.
In spite of such progress, the church has been largely oppressed in the nation and forced to register with the government in order to restrict and control the activities and expression of the worshiping community. As the government attempts to tighten its grip on the budding protestant community, the Uzbek church has an opportunity to display the true worth of Jesus by obeying him at all costs.
Pray for the multiplication of Christ-exalting, multiplying house churches in the Northern Uzbek, Southern Uzbek, and Turkmen UUPGS.
Pray for the SURGE teams as they risk their lives to plant churches. Pray for courage, wisdom, and protection.
Pray for a mighty movement of Spirit-empowered, Scripture-fed, anointed prayer to come forth from every believer.
Pray for workers to come from the harvest, for families to be reached and communities to be impacted by the Gospel.
Pray for the Kingdom of God to advance through dreams and visions, and for Jesus to be exalted in the hearts and minds of believers.
