Your Kingdom Come

2023 was declared the "Year of Prayer" in the Evangelical Church in Bosnia and Herzegovina under "Your Kingdom Come". The whole year will be marked by different prayer events and activities with which we want to fill our country with prayer, worship, and fellowship. Daily prayer prompts, monthly prayer focus, monthly prayer gatherings, and prayer walks are just some of these activities that will be happening at the local and national levels. The first significant event is a two-day prayer conference in Mostar (January 27-28). We joyfully invite you to join us as we bring our country before God.

Greetings to all!
We are at the dawn of the new 2023, which we have declared as the Year of prayer for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many of us have been investing everything we have for 20 or 30 years so that our fellow citizens would know the truth that sets free and that they would come, as lost daughters and sons, to their Heavenly Father, who, through the suffering and death of the Only Begotten Son, showed how much he loves the World, including all Bosnians and Herzegovinians, Bosniaks, Serbs, Croats, Roma, "Others"...
Many times, talking to people to whom I had to present the Evangelical Church in Bosnia and Herzegovina, I said: You can say anything and everything about our churches, except for one thing - and that is that they are "lazy"; Whatever you think we should and can do in terms of
evangelization, believe me, we tried. During these past decades, in the evangelization of the country, we tried everything we knew, what we felt the Spirit was leading us to, what someone recommended to us, what we read somewhere... For years we dreamed of revival, many full-packed churches throughout the country and we hoped that some of those great revival stories that happened somewhere in Africa, Asia, or South America will repeat themselves here, among us. It didn't happen. Yet.
Brothers and sisters, we have nothing to be ashamed of. We are not perfect; our path has seen many mistakes and many sins. But, generally speaking, we did not dishonor God's name before those who do not believe. We didn't reject a person in need, we didn't make fun of a widow or an orphan, and we didn't hesitate to step up to people from the margins of society and give them a chance. With a lot of resistance from our surroundings, with personal persecution, with authorities simply ignoring our existence, with the opposition of many local religious leaders and
everything else that makes life neither easy nor simple in our country, we survived and remained.
And we have no intention of giving up.
Praise the Lord, we see a generation that can and wants to continue, and while we are still all here together; we "the veterans", and those who are just coming, want once again, to offer this country to God. As the Scripture says, "this land, and everything on it, is His"! We believe that God has not yet spoken the last word over Bosnia and Herzegovina and that many more people from Bihać, Trebinje, Čapljina, Tuzla, Brčko, Jajce, Goražde, Banja Luka, Mostar, Sarajevo, and all other villages and towns will find their way to the Cross and that there they will recognize the Savior who died in order to give them eternal life.

That's why, for the name of this Year of prayer, we chose the words that the Son taught us and which in the next 365 days will be that motivating, basic expression of our deepest hopes: "Your Kingdom Come!"
