Pray for the Family of a Murdered Burmese Christian

[305] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Aung and children.

“Than,” a 37-year-old Christian father of five, was brutally murdered by unknown attackers recently. His wife, Aung, discovered his body on the side of the road, covered in blood, as she returned from collecting firewood for cooking. Than’s killers had slit his wrists, stabbed him in the chest and beat him severely. In early 2017, a villager known to hate Christians told Than’s family that it wasn’t wise for them to live in the animist village. And about a month before his murder, several members of the Palaung Army had visited the village several times and questioned villagers. The soldiers tried to get Than to buy drugs for them, but he refused. The family has been shunned ever since Than and Aung accepted Christ and were baptized in 2008. Pray that God will meet the needs of Than’s family and that they will remain firm in their faith. Also pray that members of the community will witness their faith as Christ sustains them during this time.

  • Father let these believers be of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Doing nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regarding one another as more important than themselves. Having the same attitude which was in Christ. Let them rejoice in the Lord always.

Place a hedge of protection around this family and use them to show that violence is not the way, but love is the way, because love never fails.
