Pray for Malaysia - facebook page

Though it is relatively stable, ethnic and religious divides characterize this nation. Mahathir Mohamad became prime minister in May 2018 after his shock election victory over the coalition that has ruled the nation for the last 60 years. The hoped for changes towards decreasing ethnic tensions, addressing human rights, freedom of religion and corruption have been evident but perhaps slower than desired. Fundamentalist Muslims carry a significant presence in Malaysia. Over the past several years, the previous government had launched an unprecedented crackdown to silence, harass and lock up hundreds of critics. A whistle-blower also suggested the authorities were behind the kidnapping of Christian pastors and outspoken activists.

Praise Report
Praise God for deputy minister, Hannah Yeoh, who is a born again Christian committed to making a difference through the current ruling political party (The Bible, Psalm 25:5).

Prayer Requests
In February 2017, Pastor Raymond Koh was abducted. A whistle-blower said that authorities were behind his and other abductions. Pray that his family will know if he is still alive. Pray that the truth will be pursued by the new government (The Bible, Jeremiah 5:1).
Pray that the government will have wisdom to know how to bring in changes that will be a blessing to the nation and its people (The Bible, Malachi 3:10).

Call to Salvation
Pray that those who are seeking for spiritual truth and meaning in life will be drawn to the Gospel (The Bible, Romans 2:8).
