The Myanmar regime extends military rule for the fourth term yesterday which marks 2 and a half years of civil unrest in the country. As a Christ’s follower, our reaction to this news would be nothing else but to continue to pour out our heart to the heavenly father.
Let’s pray through Psalms 56 of King David’s prayer when he was seized by the Philistines.
Verse (3) But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you – Almighty father, help us keep our absolute trust and complete confidence in you when we live under unsettled political and economic situations.
Verse (4) Praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? – Thank you that we belong to you and your promise to keep us safe from all the evils. Thank you that we can boldly proclaim there is nothing to fear from any man, nor from the strongholds.
Verse (8) You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. – Father God, thank You for Your compassionate mercy toward the people of Myanmar. Thank You that You care so deeply about everything that causes us pain, that You have put all the tears shed in a bottle. We seek a true source of comfort from you. Please grant us lord.
In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
