“For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords,
the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.
He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger,
giving him food and clothing.”
Home to Myanmar’s second largest ethnic group, Shan State has some of the country’s most heavily armed ethnic militias, who sometimes fight not only the Burmese military but also each other. Hostility between ethnic armed groups has destroyed thousands of homes. In late May, about 25 houses were burned down in the small, quiet village of Man-li, forcing villagers to flee from artillery fire. Villagers have had to rely on their creativity to survive, building makeshift transportation from old farm tractors and repurposing rain tarps for water purification to safely nourish their children.
1. Pray for the generations of Shan believers whom the Lord has placed for such a time as this, that they would trust in His might and kindness to sustain them.
2. Pray for resettlement efforts of displaced Shan families, and for the Lord God to reunite the weary into His heavenly kingdom.
