Pray for Every Nation: Bermuda

This series is based on the Radical Experiment by David Platt. You can find more information about my decision to join here. If you would like to participate, please let me know with a comment or email and feel free to grab the button on my sidebar. I hope this journey will enrich your prayer life as much as it does mine!

Often mistaken for being part of the Caribbean, Bermuda is actually located 650 miles East of North Carolina. Approximately 65,000 people reside on the country's 181 islands and the majority practice Catholicism or participate in the Anglican church. 

A former pastor of my mother's felt it was his calling a few years ago to pastor a church in Bermuda. Today, Pastor Richard Christen and his wife Sherri reside in the country permanently and have devoted their entire lives to this ministry. Although, I do see them occasionally throughout the year when they come to the states to visit family and take care of some banking!

I would really like to take some time today to think of the Christens and pray for their continued perseverance in serving the Lord. Pray that God would use their willing hearts to reach the people of Bermuda for Him. Pray that many Bermudian believers would participate in local church ministry and further it's impact.

Meaningless thought to ponder: Is the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle fact or fiction? 

Maybe we should ask Big Foot.......
