Pray for Myanmar - facebook page

In the Wa Autonomous State, Christians faced a sudden surge of persecution. 52 churches were closed down; 3 were demolished. 92 pastors were arrested and were said to have been made to work in fields, while 41 Bible school students were forced to work as porters for Burmese Army soldiers. Close to 100 Christians were released after they were forced to sign documents saying they would limit their faith and not pray in churches. Pray that the Lord will comfort and strengthen these Believers. Pray that they will not experience shame, but will be encouraged to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ (The Bible, Romans 5:1-2).
