Pray for the Burmese

Burmese in Myanmar (Burma)

The Burmese are the political, economic and religious leaders of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. Myanmar has had a long history of coups, wars, and rebellions. The Burmese have mixed Buddhist beliefs with animistic beliefs. Their animistic beliefs center around inherently evil spirits called nats. The Burmese spend their lives trying to appease the nats. Burmese homes often have altars for the spirits, as well as a statue of Buddha. Farmers may spend more in a year on their religion than on education, health, and clothing for their families.

Ministry Obstacles
Following Christ for the Burmese may be threatening, risking attacks from evil spirits. Pray for deliverance.

Outreach Ideas
Christians need to befriend the Burmese, and also be forthright in sharing Christ with these needy people.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Please pray for the few followers of Christ among the Burmese, that they will live holy lives, being zealous to grow into the image of Christ. Pray they will be kind and compassionate to one another.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for peace in Myanmar, and for the Burmese people to hunger to know forgiveness of sin and power for living, found only in the person and work of Christ.

Scripture Focus
“The time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory.” Isaiah 66:18
