Brief Profile

The Swede diaspora of Europe originated from Sweden with largest population being Finland. Swedes tend to emigrate mostly to their neighbour countries (Norway, Denmark, Finland), and English speaking countries (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Spain and Germany).

The native language of nearly all Swedes is Swedish, a North Germanic language, spoken by approximately 10 million people, predominantly in Sweden and parts of Finland, especially along its coast and on the Åland islands. It is, to a considerable extent, mutually intelligible with Norwegian and to a lesser extent with Danish.

Along with the other North Germanic languages, Swedish is a descendant of Old Norse, the common language of the Germanic peoples living in Scandinavia during the Viking Era. It is the largest of the North Germanic languages by numbers of speakers.

They are predominantly non-religious.

Prayer Points

  • Pray that Christians will intentionally seek out Swede people, become their friends, and share their life in both word and deed with the Dutch.
  • Pray that God will breakthrough strongholds that prevent Dutch from understanding and accepting the truth of a ultimate creator God who became intimate in the incarnation of Jesus Christ.
