Prayer Requests 6-10-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:49-56

ז Zayin

49 Remember your word to your servant,
    for you have given me hope.
50 My comfort in my suffering is this:
    Your promise preserves my life.
51 The arrogant mock me unmercifully,
    but I do not turn from your law.
52 I remember, Lord, your ancient laws,
    and I find comfort in them.
53 Indignation grips me because of the wicked,
    who have forsaken your law.
54 Your decrees are the theme of my song
    wherever I lodge.
55 In the night, Lord, I remember your name,
    that I may keep your law.
56 This has been my practice:
    I obey your precepts.

  1. Myanmar

    Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) is a Buddhist country with a significant Muslim population. A military dictatorship until 2015, it is now a democratic government still highly influenced by the military. Myanmar is one of the poorest countries in SE Asia and has many needs.

    Vietnam

    Vietnam is one of only five countries in the world still ruled by a Communist party. Laws are passed that disadvantage the Christian minority, and their implementation at the grassroots level leads to persecution from local officials. We especially see this when attempting to move outside the capital city into rural areas. All of northern Vietnam is considered ‘least reached’, including the capital, Hanoi.

    Please pray…
    Myanmar:
    Pray for the internship program. Current interns have worked in a leprosy village, prisons, trains, and sports camps to share the Gospel. Pray that we can see them go into villages to live and share among unreached people.
    Pray for leaders using sports as ministry, and who run programs for children and young people to participate in sports and hear the Gospel.
    Pray for medical outreaches in poor communities offering basic checkups. Many have not only received effective diagnosis and treatment, but also have been prayed for and experienced God’s healing.

    Vietnam:
    One worker writes, “There seems to be a gap in the workplace here. Businesses are unable to recruit quality workers. We would like to facilitate bringing Christian professionals into Hanoi, helping them settle in and thrive in their workplace environment. This business would give us a visa platform and also a networking connection into many grassroots education and development pathways”. Please pray for this initiative.

  2. Your comments on Vietnam are interesting. Western companies are now moving out of the politically volatile China and Vietnam is one place they’re resettling.

    Yet, one of the problems in China is the workers demanding higher wages, along with pressure from the government.

    A bunch of Christians did live in Hanoi in the 1960s. They all resided at the Hanoi Hilton and a few other “choice” camps.

    Thanks for sharing these.

  3. Thanks so much for this information, Tychicus. I know a young Vietnamese man who lives in Hanoi. (He’d found my website last year and emailed me about one of my blog posts, and we’ve been in touch a few times since.) I’ve been praying for Neil, and appreciate that you’ve shared these details about what things are like where he lives.

    I don’t know whether Neil is a Christian, but I’d be grateful if anyone here would join me in praying for him. God knows whether he needs prayers for salvation, or for standing firm as a Christian in Hanoi, or whatever else. What a privilege to be able to boldly approach the throne of grace and petition our Lord for individuals and peoples all around the globe!
