Turkish Cypriot in Cyprus


Turkish Cypriot in Cyprus

As the descendants of Turkish Ottoman invaders who conquered Cyprus in the sixteenth century, the Turkish Cypriots proudly maintain Turkish language, customs and traditions. Today they are known to be gentle, courteous and hospitable to strangers. They are proud of their ethnic heritage and remain very loyal to Turkey. They are Muslim, but they also adhere to folk beliefs.

Ministry Obstacles

The Turkish Cypriots maintain strong allegiance to their historic faith which doesn't leave room for a Savior. Few are willing to listen to the blessed gospel.

Outreach Ideas

There is a large Christian presence in the Greek portion of Cyprus. Pray that born again believers would befriend the Turkish Cypriots and be Christ's ambassadors.

Scripture Focus

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!"  Psalm 100:4

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to enter His courts with joyful praise!

Prayer Focus

There are few if any followers of Jesus today among the Turkish Cypriots but pray for those that will soon come into the Lord's family and accept his blessings. Pray they would faithfully fellowship together and would grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray for peace and friendship between the Turkish and Greek Cypriots. Pray for the Turkish Cypriots to find their way to the empty grave and embrace the risen Christ.
