Pray for Brunei - facebook page

Brunei has boasted a small but prosperous economy. Its wealthy standard of living surely contributes to the wild popularity of its sultan who provides free health care, housing and education to his countrymen. The nation has begun exploring alternative sources of income as it foresees its oil reserves running out. This year steps were taken in the roll-out of sharia law which Brunei’s Sunni sultan instituted in 2014. Enormous international backlash against the death penalty by stoning for homosexual acts resulted in the Sultan reneging and claiming the death penalty will not be applied, but concerns about the fate of Christians in the country remained out of the spotlight. Propagating any other religion than Islam has become illegal.

Praise Report
Praise God for the bold witness of Malaysian churches in the towns that border Brunei. Pray that more Bruneians will encounter the Gospel when they visit Malaysia (The Bible, Matthew 5:15-16).

Prayer Requests
For many people in Brunei, to be Bruneian is to be Muslim and to become a Christian is to lose your ethnic identity. Pray that God would transform this mindset and replace it with truth (The Bible, Ephesians 1:5-6).
Pray for Christians in this nation to be courageous to meet together and also share their faith with others (The Bible, 1 Chronicles 28:20).

Call to Salvation
Ask that the Loving Heavenly Father would draw many people with His kindness to repentance and faith in Him (The Bible, Romans 2:4).
