“Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) God admonishes us to always be in an attitude of prayer. We should pray for things that might seem trivial and those of enormous magnitude.
Dana Clark is a missionary teacher in Bangladesh. She works at the William Carey Academy. Ninety percent of the students are Muslim. They have the opportunity to tell their students of the life changing power of Jesus Christ. However, the school is in need of administrative staff and more teachers. Those presently on the ground, must complete all the tasks. Pray for the William Carey Academy, its teachers, and their immediate needs of administrative staff and more teachers.
Bangladesh is bordered by Myanmar (Burma). The Rohingya people are a Muslim ethnic minority group in Burma. They face extraordinary persecution and violence from the Burmese military; military personnel torch villages, murder refugees, and force hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes.
Human rights watchdogs say the persecution has intensified in recent months, and a top UN official described a renewed offensive by the Burmese military as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh.
Over 400,000 have fled. Some have been seriously injured during their exodus. One of the hospitals they have been taken to is manned by Christian missionaries. Dana asked us to pray that these refugees might hear and experience the love of Christ, and might get saved.
Please pray for these requests. Watch your newspapers, on line news, and video broadcasts. You will be hearing more about this as the days go by.
