Denmark Increases Spending on Arctic Defense

As ice in the Arctic shrinks, various countries like Russia, China, and America have begun exploring the strategic implications of the region.

Greenland and the Faroe Islands are under Danish control. In order to keep tabs on activity in the artic, Denmark has agreed to spend more money on defence capabilities there.

Denmark is a country of almost 6 million people in Northern Europe. Though 74% of the country are members of the Church of Denmark (Lutheran), only 3% attend Sunday services regularly and 19% consider religion an important part of their life.

Operation World puts the number of evangelicals in the country at 3.5%. Operation World also says there is a shortfall of pastors for churches.

Please pray for Denmark. Prayer for labourers to take the gospel there. Pray for Christians there to be encouraged and bold to evangelize and disciples others with the gospel
