Dear God, we praise you for you are compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Your light shines on the people in the darkness, you bring hope to those desperate.
God, I come to you with humility, praying for our mission partners who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. I pray that your grace and mercy come upon Thailand Bethel Theological Institute. As the second wave of COVID-19 overcomes Thailand and Myanmar, people have to face more challenges than before. The Thai-Myanmar border remains closed. The students from Myanmar are still not able to get back to the campus. They are struggling with living there and learning online under various obstacles. I pray that you will grant every teacher and student of TBTI the strength to keep on and that they may experience your provision in this difficult time.
God, I would like to remember the Lahu mission project in Myanmar. We had to cancel our trip due to the pandemic, but through the sharing from the local pastors, the gospel continues to spread and many have come under your name. We praise you and pray that you will continue to do the wonderful work among the villages and let more villagers know your salvation and worship you as the only true God. God, we also pray for peace and unity over the political situation in Myanmar.
God, we pray for the local churches in the Golden Triangle Region. As they bear your witnesses to this wounded world, we pray that the Holy Spirit will lead your servants to bring the Good News of salvation and the blessings of healing to the community. God, even if our days are full of uncertainties, we still have hope in you. We pray that your healing will come upon the sick, your comfort comes upon the wounded people, your provision will be with those who are in need.
God, we give thanks to you, for you allow your ministries to continue even under various constraints. Your unceasing love never fails.
We thank you for those in Canada who continue to embrace a broken world in word and deed through their prayers and generous giving. I ask for continued protection and provision for all of CBM’s work in the world – for the Field Staff and local partners.
There is no social distancing between you and your people. May your people stand firm in your presence and keep looking forward to face every circumstance. We trust in Jesus Christ who endured the cross so that we can look forward to joy in you.
In Jesus’s name we pray. Amen!
