A national event, Spain, We Pray for You, was celebrated in Madrid on Saturday 13th June. It brought together thousands of Spain’s evangelical Christians to pray for the nation, particularly to pray for Christian witness and that Spanish people may come to know Jesus. In a spirit of joy, more than 12,000 believers marched through central Madrid, stopping to pray for the nation at key locations. Following the march, the auditorium in Tierno Galvan park was the venue for a Festival of Prayer – a three hour event that was accompanied by moments of prayer, praise and preaching of God’s Word. It was broadcast by radio, television and through internet sites.
During the morning, prior to the march, a prayer breakfast was held attended by 200 evangelical church leaders with a number of national and local government representatives. Spain has proved to be a hard country for evangelical Christianity but, in the last 10 years, their numbers have doubled.
