May Christians have God’s wisdom and discernment as they respond to these issues. Pray also for more trained children ministry workers to teach the many children at our partner’s outreach centres and churches in N India. In another region, another partner has started a curriculum based Sunday School Ministry, please pray that it will be implemented smoothly across various locations.
Myanmar – 1 Feb 2022 marks the one year anniversary of the military coup that has led to much conflict and unrest in this country. This has led to the civil conflict that is currently ravaging many parts of this nation, causing hardship, economic chaos and even loss of life in many families. Pray for peace and justice to come to this nation. Pray also for the 8% of the population who are Christians, mainly among the ethnic minority groups to be able to witness for Christ and show love to their neighbours during this difficult time. May we as a Singapore church be able to show God’s love and comfort to the Myanmar people God has placed in our family or work places.
