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.

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
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 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
by providing Bibles, Christian radio broadcasts, shortwave radios, skills training, Christian literature and support for pastors
and families of prisoners.
