Slide “The spiritual climate here is hungry...there are many
that have literally never heard of Jesus.”
Luke from Cheb
“There are cities with 50,000 inhabitants,
and there is no protestant church in these cities.”
Daniel from Breclav
“People are into astrology and the supernatural but closed off to God.”
Chris from Prague
“People seek the pleasures of this world for as long as they can. When they get sick, or retire, they feel very depressed, lonely, and without hope.”
Petr from Olomouc
This is why we pray.

SALVATION

The Czech people are smart, forward thinkers who place great value on family and culture. However, 70% of the Czech population claims to be irreligious. This means that the largest religion in the Czech Republic is actually no religion at all. While less than 1% of the population follows Christ and many search for answers in Eastern religions or different forms of occultism, God hasn’t abandoned the Czech people. He is intimately encountering them and calling them to joyful repentance and salvation, as you will see in the first short film.

When Petra loses her mother at a young age, she sets off on a journey to find hope and healing for her loss. This decade-long search eventually leads her to discover that the answer she’s been looking for has been pursuing her all along.
As a respected professor, Josef loves science and often mocked ideas that couldn’t be proven with empirical evidence. One day, a book comes the professor’s way that not only confronts his hardened beliefs but changes his hardened heart.
“ASK, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU; SEEK, AND YOU WILL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT WILL BE OPENED TO YOU.”
MATTHEW 7:7

RESTORATION

Having a problem-free existence is idealized in the Czech Republic, and most people are on a relentless pursuit of pleasure. Sadly, this pursuit has left many hurting and without hope. Substance abuse, depression, and suicide are more prevalent today than in Communist times. Roughly 50% of all marriages end in divorce, and many are addicted to pornography as Prague is home to the largest European porn company. Yet, the light of Christ is bursting through the darkness. God is bringing freedom from enslaving sin, and He is restoring those who call upon His Name, as you will see in the next film.

Honza’s motto in life is simply, “Have fun!” When a devastating bike accident threatens to change everything he’s ever known, he is confronted by the reality that he’s been given a much greater purpose in life than serving himself.
Yearning for the Bohemian life, Ruda turns to alcohol to escape the responsibilities of being a husband and father. Before long, his entire world falls apart, leaving him to choose between killing himself or surrendering to the person he’s rejected his entire life.
“THE THIEF COMES ONLY TO STEAL AND KILL AND DESTROY. I CAME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY.”
JOHN 10:10
Reflecting on what you’ve seen, and as the Holy Spirit leads, pray for Spirit-empowered life change using the following suggestions:
C
PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE FROM DEPRESSION, ADDICTIONS, AND OTHER WORKS OF THE ENEMY.
C
PRAY THAT CZECH CHRISTIANS WALK IN THEIR IDENTITY IN CHRIST AND GROW IN SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES, SUCH AS READING SCRIPTURE AND PRAYER.
C
PRAY FOR THE CHURCH AS THEY DISCIPLE THOSE WHO ARE STRUGGLING WITH CRIPPLING ADDICTIONS AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS.

The Czech Republic is experiencing religious freedom for only the second time since 1620, yet mistrust and indifference towards the Church abound in the hearts and minds of the Czech people. Some cities have no access to a Gospel-preaching church, leaving many Christians feeling alone and unmotivated to share the hope they have in Jesus. But God is greatly moving in the hearts of His followers, stirring up their faith and empowering them to share the Gospel with others. They become His witnesses in the places they live, work, and play, as you will see in the next film.

Radek and Jirka are bad men. Living lives plagued by violence, neglect, and self-centeredness, the two men soon find themselves threatened by something much more terrifying than any prison sentence–the inescapable reality of death itself.
A few years ago, Ondrej was introduced to American football. A few years before that, he met a man named Jesus. These two encounters changed who Ondrej is, what he believes, and what he does for a living today.
“IN THE SAME WAY, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE OTHERS, SO THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS AND GIVE GLORY TO YOUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.”
MATTHEW 5:16
Reflecting on what you’ve seen, pray earnestly for God’s people in the Czech Republic using the following suggestions:
C
PRAY THAT CZECH CHRISTIANS WOULD FAITHFULLY SERVE AND THRIVE IN LOCAL CHURCHES.
C
PRAY FOR BOLDNESS AND JOY IN PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL WHEREVER GOD HAS PLACED THEM.
C
PRAY FOR HUMBLE BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO ACCEPT THE CALL OF PLANTING NEW CHURCHES IN THE NATION.
