This month we are focusing on an article I received from Voice of the Martyrs. We are asking that you focus your prayers on the nations of Vietnam and Laos regarding their government attacks on Christians in these nations. Please read the attached article and prayer request.

STRATEGIC TARGETED PRAYER

  
Ephesians 6:12:  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
 
Job 22:27-28:  27  "Thou shalt make thy prayer unto Him, and He shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thou vows.  28  Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee:  and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

VIETNAM AND LAOS: Soldiers Attack Hmong Christians

Thousands of Viet-Hmong Christians from Dien Bien province who are staging mass protests demanding religious freedom and land reforms have been attacked by Vietnam and Laos security forces. Since last Tuesday dozens have been killed, many more wounded and hundreds are missing.  "The government launched an aggressive crackdown on May 3, dispatching military and police units to seal off the region and attacking peaceful protestors," according to a local source. The source emphasized that, "Military units from Laotian provinces of Xieng Khouang, Khammoune and Luang Prabang were sent to the area to arrest all those who try to flee to Laos."

Christianity practiced by the Hmong community is seen by authorities and sections of the Vietnamese and Lao society as an American or imperialist "import" into the country and a threat to the communist rule.

Please Pray!

Please pray for Hmong Christians and the families of the murdered and missing. Pray for complete healing for the injured.  Pray for the fall of Communism in Vietnam and Laos and for godly leaders to be established over these countries.  Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith. (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2).  Voice Of The Martyrs assists Christians in Vietnam and Laos by providing Bibles, Christian radio broadcasts, shortwave radios, skills training, Christian literature and support for pastors and families of prisoners.
