Pray for Laos - facebook page

Laos is one of the world’s few remaining communist states, enduring as a one-party socialist Marxist republic supported financially by China and Vietnam. Economic growth remained high but debt remains huge. Progress was made in the last year, with poverty now halved, and education and health outcomes improved. Drought has badly impacted rice farmers this year. Persecution against Christian Believers has increased in recent years. The long-standing domination of Buddhism violently attacks Christians. The Communists also want to see Believers eliminated as it considers Christianity a foreign intrusion. However, in spite of persecution, the Christian community grows with bold Believers.

Praise Report
Praise God for discipleship programs for new Believers that have been successfully held in Laos this year (The Bible, Matthew 11:29).

Prayer Requests
Churches have been randomly raided, with their property confiscated and pastors and leaders jailed. Pray for their faith to be strengthened (The Bible, 1 Chronicles 19:13).
Pray for the government to address their high debt and begin to meet the felt needs of their impoverished population (The Bible, Proverbs 22:26).

Call to Salvation
Pray for the salvation of those in authority (The Bible, 1 Timothy 2:1-4).
