The majority of Turks live in Turkey, but several million live in Germany and have adapted to Western culture, pursuing professional careers such as engineering, medicine and law. They began to establish themselves there soon after WWII, so that period of time when immigrants are open to new ideas is long gone. But God can still do miracles! The Turks are Sunni Muslim, believing in one God, heaven and hell.
The goals of the Turks in Germany are conflicted. They want to earn a good living, but they also don't want to lose what remains of their culture and religion in this secularized land. This can cause them to automatically reject the gospel.
Prayer is always needed. Prostitution exists among the Turks, so missionaries could set up recovery ministries for the hurting women as a base for gospel work. Alcohol rehabilitation homes can be another opportunity for followers of Christ to serve and share the gospel.
"Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord God, when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord." Amos 8:11
Pray that the Bible becomes available to this people group. Pray that they listen to and obey the words of the Lord.
Pray that the Lord would show the Muslim Turks the need for a sin-forgiving Savior. Pray that God would convict the Turks of their sin, seeing Christ as the only way to reconcile with God the Father. Pray for spiritual openness among the Turks in Germany. Pray for a spiritual awakening that would lead to a Disciple Making Movement.
