Day 23: Social Punishment

Day 23: Social Punishment

“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’”

Romans 12:19

Some young people have taken up a controversial social media tactic to resist Myanmar’s coup. Known as “social punishment,” anti-coup protesters use social media to publicly shame military family members and celebrities that have yet to openly denounce the coup. They often disclose their pictures, details of family connections, even workplaces and phone numbers. One Christian girl, targeted for being the granddaughter of a former military general, has found that being socially punished has opened the door for her to minister to family members and relatives terrified of becoming targets themselves.

Prayer Requests

1. Pray that the anti-coup movement would leave vengeance in God’s hands instead of using social media to wage retaliatory attacks on their perceived enemies.

2. Pray for God to protect innocent people targeted by social punishment, and for the Lord to open more doors for believers to share God’s love with them.
