In response to the escalating violence in Myanmar, the Asia Pacific Baptist Youth have issued a call for prayer and asked youth worldwide to stand in solidarity with the young people of Myanmar.
 
The protests in response to the military coup in February have been largely organized by those in their teens and twenties, and the military has responded with brutality. The average age of the casualties is only 17-years-old. Please join us in prayer for an end to the violence and restoration of peace and justice.

Without You, We Are Nothing

Oh sweet Christ,
draw us who are weak to you,
since we cannot follow you if you do not draw us on.
Give us a brave, resourceful spirit, and,
if the body is feeble, may your grace precede, mediate and follow,
because without you we can do nothing and we are nothing.
Give us resolute spirits, fearless hearts, true faith, firm hope and perfect love,
that we may patiently and joyfully lay down our lives for you.

(Prayer by John Hus)
