Apostle George E. Markakis writes urgently from Athens, Greece:
Evi and I landed in Athens Airport on Sunday 28 June shortly before midnight, from a week of ministry away in Hungary. We found very long lines of people in front of ATMs waiting to withdraw money, empty gas stations, and everyone speaking of the country being on the brink of financial collapse. The news said that in one day more than 1 Billion Euro was withdrawn from the Banks through the ATMs as people are afraid that the Bank Accounts will freeze and the deposits may be confiscated.
The head-on collision with Eurozone's bosses is at hand, and the Greek Government announced the Banks will be closed and Referendum will take place on July 5 for the people to decide on the country's future. Whether the country stays in the Euro, or, returns to the national currency of Drachmae, the future looks currently grim without any visible prospects of the economy picking up "to save the day" in the face of so much unemployment.
In the face of this current situation, there is an urgent need for prayer like never before. Would you please take at least a few moments to pray for Greece? There is a great need for the Lord's intervention so that justice may be established.
Apostle George Markakis has been a past member of ICAL for many years and is now a member of ECAL, which sent this prayer request - http://ecaleaders.eu/news-archives/read2/article/1198721
