Prayer about massive Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/06/asia/bangladesh-rohingya-new-camp/index.html
Lord, today we pray again for the Rohingya, particularly for those seeking refuge in Bangladesh. We are so thankful the government of Bangladesh is making provision for 800,000 refugees. It is hard to imagine this absolutely massive influx of people arriving in one country in such a short period of time, and how much that would tax this nation. So we are grateful for their kindness toward this people group that is counted among the world’s most persecuted. At the same time we are very concerned. As you know more than we do, 800,000 refugees in one place is not a formula for success and prosperity. So, Heavenly Father, we pray that this camp at Kutupalong will defy the odds. We pray that even now you would mobilize organizations, churches and individuals to help the Rohingya at Kutupalong, not only to meet basic needs, but to provide dignity, therapy, activities, stimulation, healing and peace in this place, which is being built right now. And, Lord, do we do continue to pray that the truth will come out about what is happening in Myanmar, and that the barbarism would cease. We want to see resolution at the root. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
