Prayer points:

•    There is much poverty within Romania, especially among the Roma people.  Pray for leadership that has the wisdom to chart the right path and the integrity to implement the right policies, and for greater stability within the nation.
•    Many people leave the country looking for work, leaving many children growing up without parental care. There are also many orphans and high abortion rates. Pray for families in Romania, that children would grow up in safety and security.
•    Pray for a much greater sense of unity in churches, between churches, and between denominations, resulting in cooperation in prayer, evangelism, and social work.
