Day 4: Women

Day 4: Women

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Galatians 3:28

Women have been fighting against the military coup in a surprising way: stringing clotheslines covered with Burmese sarongs, which women traditionally use as undergarments, across their city streets. In Burmese Buddhism, men are considered to have greater spiritual superiority (hpone), and a man’s hpone is sapped by touching or passing under the “uncleanness” of a woman’s undergarments. Hanging up these clothes has been an effective deterrent against Burmese soldiers intruding into their homes, one that both leverages and undermines Buddhist traditions.

Prayer Requests

1. Pray that the Lord God would reveal to women in Myanmar that they are precious in His eyes, and that men and women are equally valued in Christ.

2. Pray that this weakening of Buddhist traditions would open the door to more Buddhist men and women receiving the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
