Greenland’s arctic climate means that most of the island is permanently ice covered –nearly all of the Greenlanders lives in the towns on the edges of the island.
Challenges for Prayer
Greenland has been Christianized, but not converted. Nearly every settlement has its Lutheran church building – but too many lack real spiritual life.
Pray for renewal and new life for Dane and Greenlander alike. The tightly knit communities of Greenland could easily be impacted powerfully by a move of God.
The culture of Greenland, so finely tuned to the inhospitable environment, is devastated by modernity. The dire results are widespread immorality and sexual abuse, alcoholism, mental illness and suicide. Deep emotional and spiritual healing are necessary for many to move beyond their pain and hurt.
Thankfully, some indigenous believers, missionaries and short-term workers minister in counselling, healing and deliverance and see wonderful fruit as increasing numbers are transformed by the work of the Holy Spirit. Many of those working in Greenland, including many indigenous people, are newly empowered to minister as a result.
Pray for this to continue and for those receiving help to get plugged into communities of faith.
Unreached/Least-reached People in Greenland
According to Joshua Project the world has a population of 7.13 Billion of which 2.91 Billion are Unreached.
Therefore 40.7% of the Population of the world is unreached.
An unreached or least-reached people group is a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group.
There are NO least-reached People Groups listed in Greenland
