Here are the prayer requests that we at ASAP Ministries consider the most urgent this month. Please partner with us so that these needs can go up to heaven with a mighty surge of united prayer.
PRAYER POINTS FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY 2021:
On Monday, February 1, 2021, the Myanmar military seized control of the country’s government and declared a state of emergency following a dispute over recent election results. This month, we invite you to join us in praying for Myanmar.
- Pray for Peace in Myanmar — Intercede for the country’s elected leaders and the military leaders now in authority, that their dispute may be resolved peacefully. Pray that God, who “removes kings and raises up kings” (Dan. 2:21), will install the leader of His choosing, that the people of Myanmar “may lead a quiet and peaceable life” (2 Tim. 2:2).
- Pray for the People of Myanmar — Uplift the people of Myanmar during this time of fear and uncertainty. Intercede especially for the country’s many ethnic and religious minorities, such as the Chin, Karen, Rohingya, and others who have suffered greatly. Ask God to protect them, provide for their needs, and reveal Himself to those who do not yet know Him. Remember, too, the many refugees from Myanmar living in other parts of the world, as the current situation stirs memories of past traumas and concern for friends and family who remain in their homeland.
- Pray for the Proclamation of the Gospel in Myanmar — While the current situation and the continued impact of the Covid-19 pandemic present obstacles to the spread of the gospel in Myanmar, “there is nothing too hard for [God]” (Jer. 32:17). We praise Him that all ASAP missionaries and projects in the country are safe at this time, and we trust that God will help us continue moving forward. Pray that through the power of the Holy Spirit they will “shine like the brightness of the firmament” and “turn many to righteousness” (Dan. 12:3) in the midst of this crisis.
