On the 20th Global Day of Prayer for Burma, join us to pray for a country still urgently in need of your prayers.
A new government led by Aung San Suu Kyi. The military committing crimes against humanity. A constitution which restricts democracy.
A severe humanitarian crisis. Blocks on aid to vulnerable people. A prominent pro-democracy lawyer assassinated.
After you've watched the film, show it in your church or small group, and pray for:
- At least 30,000 Rohingya Muslims who have been forced to flee their homes - hundreds of whom have died in outbreaks of violence.
- More than 100,000 people from Kachin state who are living in displaced people's camps.
- The block on humanitarian aid to both the Kachin and Rohingya to be lifted, and an end to their suffering
- Dumdaw Nawng Lat and Langjaw Gam Seng, two Christians from the Kachin ethnic group in Burma, who were taken into police custody on 22 January after taking journalists to the site of a bombed Catholic church. We’re still awaiting news on their trial.
Over more than 25 years of working in Burma, we've seen some movement towards change but there's still a very long way to go.
We know that God answers prayers and is capable of moving mountains if we ask: so let's join in prayer on 12 March.
