“For God so loved [the people of Azerbaijan] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
The Republic of Azerbaijan is a transcontinental country at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia. Its neighboring nations are Russia, Georgia, Armenia, and Iran. Azerbaijan has a population of about 10 million. Its capital and largest city is Baku.
The country’s official language is Azerbaijani. Almost all of its citizens are Shia Muslims.
Our prayer today is that the people of Azerbaijan will surrender to the true God, the God of peace and love.
