Brief Profile

The Latvian diaspora people migrated from Latvia to several European countries.

Many Latvians have a strong connection with Latvia. For instance, many often travel to Latvia and provide financial support and give material to various organizations. Some Latvians sit on the Parliament in Latvia.

Latvians speak English, but often they still maintain speaking Latvia (also known as Lettish) in their home. Moreover, today, while proud to be American, Latvians have kept alive their Latvian cultural heritage with many second, third or fourth generation persons able to converse in the Latvian language.

Historically, Latvian people come from a Lutheran background, but many today are in name only Lutheran. As a result, the majority now are non-religious, while some now adhere to Roman Catholicism and also others who adhere to Judaism.

Prayer Points

  • Ask the Lord to send evangelical Christians to live among the Latvians and share the love of Christ with them.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to open the hearts of the Latvians so that they will be receptive to the Gospel and learn that they may have a living relationship with a living God.
  • Pray that God will raise up prayer teams to go and break up the soil through worship and intercession.
