As we approach the holiday season, it’s a good time to reflect on how we can be better people. One way of doing that is by thinking about how our thoughts and actions impact others around us. For example, let’s say you’re driving in your car and you see someone parking illegally. What are the chances that you’ll get out of your car and confront them? Probably not very high. Why? Because you likely have some preconceived notions about what would happen if you came face-to-face with the person who was parking illegally.
Prayer for Myanmar
With more than two decades of military rule in Myanmar, the country is still facing many challenges. The current situation in Myanmar is complex and difficult to understand, let alone predict.
Nonetheless, we continue to pray for the people of Myanmar and their leaders as they work to build a better future. We ask God to help them through the tough times, and to guide them on their path to freedom and democracy.
When you pray for Myanmar, ask God to:
• Give strength to the people of Myanmar as they face difficult circumstances
• Help them find hope during these challenging times
• Guide them on the path to freedom and democracy
The Rohingya Crisis
Since 2012, when militant Buddhist monks began attacks on Muslim villages in the western state of Rakhine, Myanmar’s Rohingya community has faced discrimination and violence. According to the United Nations, 740,000 Rohingya live in camps in Rakhine—an area twice the size of Manhattan—where they are restricted from movement and denied access to education, healthcare, food, and other basic amenities.
In response to the crisis, many people around the world have turned to prayer and meditation as a way to support those affected by the violence. Here are five ways you can pray for the Rohingya:
1. Pray for the safety and wellbeing of those who are suffering.
2. Ask for strength and guidance as we work together to bring peace and justice to this community.
3. Thank God for His goodness in all of our lives, even during difficult times.
4. Send healing energy into these areas of crisis in Myanmar.
5. Let go of any feelings of guilt or anger, and offer forgiveness instead.
How to pray for Myanmar
When praying for Myanmar, it is important to know the customs and culture of that country. For example, in Myanmar, people typically pray in groups of three or more. This is because the country is based on Buddhist beliefs and mandalas are used in prayer. Additionally, many people believe that certain prayers are more effective when spoken together.
When praying for Myanmar, it is also important to remember that the country is in a very difficult time. The government has been suppressed by military rule for over 50 years, and there is currently a refugee crisis as a result of violence perpetrated by the army and ethnic militias. Many people in Myanmar are struggling to survive and support their families.
If you would like to pray for Myanmar, here are some suggestions:
1) Pray for peace and understanding between all the nations in the region.
2) Ask God to help guide the government towards democracy and freedom for all its citizens.
3) Pray for strength and healing for those who have been hurt in this time of turmoil.
4) Pray that God will protect those who are fleeing violence and persecution, and grant them safety and new beginnings.
I know that this article may not be the most uplifting thing to read, but I feel it is important to share. In Myanmar, an estimated 1.3 million people have fled their homes since last August as a result of violence and persecution from the military regime. Many are seeking refuge in neighboring Thailand and India, but many others are stranded in refugee camps in border towns or on islands off the coast of Burma. The United Nations estimates that there are now over 600,000 Rohingya refugees living in precarious conditions with little food or shelter. Prayer has been shown to be one of the most powerful tools we have for addressing humanitarian crises like these, so if you’re able, please pray for the safety and well-being of all those affected by this tragedy.
