Provencal is a Romance language also called Occitan. Provencal is the name of the people group that lives there. In France, where most live, they speak French as their primary language, but in Italy and Monaco, they speak Occitan as their first language. There are many famous Provencal people including Nostradamus and Napoleon Bonaparte.
The Provencal people have created such delicacies as ratatouille, bouillabaisse, and the tropézienne, a rich, cream-filled cake.
There is a high crime rate in their part of the world. They have a strong tourist industry.
Though almost all Provencal are Christian, mainly Roman Catholic, they are secular in their worldview. In their daily lives they depend on the ways of humankind rather than the ways of God. The church is where one is married and buried, but it is not a source of guidance.
Provencal people need to hear and heed the words of the Bible. Their worldview needs to be centered around Jesus Christ.
Pray for the Lord to raise up and thrust out Provencal disciples who will disciple others.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in the churches in Lombardy, bringing them to a purified faith.
Pray for Provencal Roman Catholics to begin to study and heed the Bible.
