Denmark. A country ready for a revival.

Islam is the second largest religion in Denmark. Christian immigrants have established over 150 churches drawing as many as one third of the churchgoers. There is increasing evidence of a spiritual openness (revival) among Danes and in response churches are being planted and ministries established to reach them.

Prayer Points:
Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring revival to the Church where many have become disillusioned.
Pray for biblical thinking to replace the secular, postmodern worldview prevalent among the youth.
Pray for full-time pastors and teachers who are anchored in the truths of the Bible.

Denmark, recognized as the oldest kingdom in Europe, is ruled by a constitutional monarchy. It has received praise for its extensive welfare system and a healthy modern market economy. The 5.5 million Danes enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world despite proportionally high taxes.

A member of the EEC (now EU) since 1973, Denmark has occasionally dissented from its European counterparts and in 2000 chose to reject the Euro currency, retaining its traditional Danish kroner. At one time very open to immigrants, Denmark has gradually tightened its immigration laws due to rising tensions. Greenland and the Faroe Islands, once considered part of Denmark, are now self-governing territories.

Due in large part to the centuries old and state supported Evangelical Lutheran Church, Denmark’s laws and social values are firmly rooted in Christian principles and traditions. While over 80 percent of the population identifies themselves as Lutheran, church attendance is an astonishing two percent, and half of those members report being agnostic or atheist.

Other Christian denominations bring the total to a little over eighty-five percent. Immigrants have influenced religion in Denmark as well, with the number of Muslims at almost four percent. This makes Islam the second largest religion in Denmark. Christian immigrants have established over 150 churches drawing as many as one third of the churchgoers.
