A Heart for Hungary Prayer Guide hardcopy version

Day 30       Humor

Girl queen

Hungarians love jokes and humorous stories. Even though they are known for having a pessimistic view of life, they also love to laugh, sometimes laughing at their own pessimism. Their favorite humor tends to be puns. They love to manipulate the language where things have multiple meanings. A lot of intellectual humor is used with references to scholars and artists of the past.

A joyful heart is good medicine... Prov. 17:22a
...A cheerful heart has a continual feast.   Prov. 15:15b

Pray that appropriate humor can be used to open doors and provide non-invasive ways to share the gospel with the people.
