Country Prayer Points:

  • Social changes reflect a more liberal Chile. Divorce, crime, drug abuse, homosexuality and materialism are all increasing in this traditionally conservative nation.
  • The majority of those remaining in the Catholic church have a tendency to treat Catholicism as a traditional identity rather than a deliberate life of faith, especially among the upper class.
  • Among the indigenous in Chile, animistic beliefs and superstitions are often mixed with Christianity.
  • Leadership in the church can be negatively influenced by inadequate training, legalism, and a substitute of personal opinion for solid biblical teaching.
  • A vision for missions is needed in the heart of the Chilean church.
  • Ethnic minorities, both indigenous and immigrant, are sometimes faced with discrimination.
  • 10.7% of Chile is unreached by the gospel.
