Day 13: Spain

Today has been a great day of resting up during a very busy season. So to maintain that theme, we're keeping things short and sweet tonight.

My aunt and uncle just completed El Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James, which is an ancient pilgrimage across Spain to the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela. Aunt Nancy did a great job of documenting their journey! So we're offering up some prayers for the nation of Spain.

Spanish Quick Facts
Population: 45.5 million
Primary Industry: Tourism, Agriculture, Industry
Annual Income per Person: $35,117
Political System: Constitutional Monarchy
Primary Religion: Christianity (Primarily Catholicism)
All facts found in Operation World

Lord, we praise You for Spain. The history of Christianity in Spain is rich, yet not without trouble and pain. We ask for a blessing on the current Church, that You would send a spirit of revival and reveal Your power and grace and glory in a fresh way. We ask for a special blessing on the pilgrims walking the Camino. Keep them safe and meet them in a tangible way as they walk. We praise You for Your goodness and for Your perfect plans for all nations. Amen
