Almighty God, three months after the military coup, the people of Myanmar continue to struggle for justice. We continue to knock on the door of heaven (Luke 11:5-8), pleading on their behalf. Lord, we pray for democracy in Myanmar. We pray for the safety and release of democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the thousands of others who have been arrested during protests against the military junta. Lord, we grieve the 759 protesters who have been killed and dread the spilling of any more blood. We pray for peace. We pray for the junta to do the right thing for its people and relinquish power. We pray for international pressure to make a difference. We pray for Dr. Sasa as he continues to keep the world informed about what is happening in Myanmar. Lord, magnify yourself in Myanmar. May people come to know you during this tumultuous time. May people see your mighty hand at work against oppression. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
