Please continue to stand together in prayer with the people of Myanmar. Specific prayer concerns for this week are listed below:

  • Thailand as they open borders for new refugee and asylum seekers who are making their way to the border in need of shelter and food.
  • For the challenges that the officials in Thailand and the borders face with those coming in and the increase of COVID-19 cases.
  • The leaders from Kaw Thoo Lei Karen Baptist Churches (KKBC) as they meet with the key Karen leaders. Pray for unity as they begin conversations related to the existing refugee camps.
 
Knowing and believing God is with them, the people of Myanmar are claiming the promise of Isaiah 41:10, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
A Blessing As You Go

O, we go on our way
to act in accord with Jesus’s words and deeds,
to be the salt of the earth, 
to seek justice, 
to build peace, 
to protect the creation, 
and to gain life.
Amen.
