Over the last 3 years God has laid on my heart the need to pray for the nation of France. I would like to share with you some interesting facts.
- Church attendance is one of the lowest in Europe (6-8%, compare that to the USA's 44%)
- There are 36,550 cities, towns, and villages in France and 35,000 of them do not have an Evangelical church.
- 80% of French people have never owned or even seen a Bible.
- - There are approximately 50,000 full-time practitioners of occult arts (tarot, fortune telling, psychic healing, etc) who easily outnumber the 35,000 full-time Christian workers in France.
- Islam has seen strong growth. For each Evangelical Christian in France, there are ten practicing Muslims.
- Around 30% of France are self professing athiest.
