The response across the American Baptist family to the Call to Prayer for Myanmar is encouraging. Following is an updated prayer request:
Please pray for the 2500 persons who have been arrested and detained for political reasons as well as the 8,000 persons who have been displaced from their homes. Some of the displaced persons have been without citizenship status for over 30 years according to Dr. Wado, President of the Kawthoolei Hope Theological Seminary. Prayers are also needed for the protestors against the military coup, 500 of whom have been killed with an average age of 17 years old. These young leaders need strength and hope, lest they burnout from the daily violence waged against them. In a meeting with the Vice-President of the CRPH (Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw), Mahn Win Khaing Than, he requested that we pray for more pressure to be placed on the military so that there will be an end to the control of the military.
