Pray for Myanmar - facebook page

A pastor from the Chin people group expressed how confusing it is to see the world focus so much attention on the plight of the Rohingya people, but pay so little attention to the brutal and ongoing army crackdown on the Chin people. The conflict has been going on since the early 1960s in these areas where Christian minority groups suffer greatly. Pray for some increased attention to be paid in the media. Pray that God will strengthen the Christian Believers in these regions. Ask God to give them gracious and forgiving hearts towards those who persecute them (The Bible, Matthew 18:21-22).
