Luke recorded Peter’s miraculous deliverance from prison after “constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church” (Acts 12:5). Today, our brothers and sisters in the Church in Myanmar are caught in a bloody civil war, and they need our help. They are persecuted, killed, and are literally depending on our prayers for their deliverance. There is only one Church — the body of believers in Christ across the globe. When one part of the body is attacked, praying for their deliverance is up to us.
Specifically, we need to pray for the Chin people of Myanmar. Ninety percent of Chin people are Christian. They are educated leaders and business owners. And yet, as a group, the Chin people of Myanmar are being targeted by the military.
On September 18, the Myanmar military used heavy artillery fire against its own people in a major city called Thantlang. They burned homes, including those of Chin Christians. Because firefighters are too afraid of the military to put out the fires, people take it into their own hands. When one pastor tried to enter a burning building to save people, he was shot dead on the street. Other people who tried to help were chased down and shot.
Pray for Myanmar: a war-torn nation in need of God’s light – Since 2011, hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the violence. Meanwhile, citizens are still recovering from the devastating effects of 2008’s Cyclone Nargis, which destroyed livelihoods and killed 140,000 people, as well as more recent storms. As Myanmar struggles to rebuild and find peace, please pray with us for the Lord’s mighty hand to bring healing and hope.
