 Pray for Christians in Myanmar - Thurs. AM...3/30/17

Day 28... Pray for Christians in Myanmar

2 Thessalonians 1:4

Therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.

The Nation of Myanmar

Indigenous Rohingya believers face harsh treatment. These people are internally displaced, which has created ethnic and religious tension. Myanmar also recently saw its first free and fair elections in 25 years, which saw a landslide win for the opposition under Aung San Suu Kyi. Most ethnic minority parties did not win seats in the new parliament, so it will likely include less Christians than before. During the campaign and elections, the Burmese army continued its attacks against ethnic minorities in Kachin and Shan State, even though a ceasefire agreement was signed. Christians are strongly affected by such attacks and the level of violence is high. Additionally, an organization of Buddhist radical monks (Ma Ba Tha) increased their campaigns against religious minorities and successfully helped introduce four laws for the “Protection of Race and Religion”, building insurmountable hurdles for conversions and religiously mixed marriages.

Please...

Pray for persecuted Christian minorities to minister to persecuted Rohingya Muslims.

Pray that God would use new Christians’ Buddhist backgrounds to draw other Buddhists to Him.

Pray that the Holy Spirit would comfort and strengthen believers who are attacked for their faith.

Let us remember those in the shadow of the cross in the nation of Myanmar.

Let us pray for the gospel of Jesus to penetrate the darkness of that nation.
