Prayer for Malaysia: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - August 22

Today as we pray for Malaysia we are going to zero in on the three additional areas under Malaysian control - Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, and Sarawak. Please review pages 559-561.

My prayer for today: Lord Jesus, thank You that You not only hold the political nations in Your hand, but that You see and know every tribe, language, and people group so intimately that You are calling some from each one into relationship with You. We will be around the throne with some people from these areas of Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, and Sarawak, and we want to lift them up to You today. For Peninsular Malaysia, we pray for boldness for the church in the face of relentless pressure from radical Islamist elements. We pray for the church to continue to grow and adapt to an ever-changing situation. We pray for renewal and wisdom for leaders. We pray for the courage and commitment the church needs to reach the least-reached in PM. In Sabah, Lord, we praise You for the rapid church growth and pray for evangelization of the unreached. We pray for unity and cooperation among the churches and against apathy and political influences. Lord, we finally lift up Sarawak to You. Thank You for 70 years of Your presence, for the work among the SIB, Anglican, and Methodists, and for the influence of the Bible schools. We pray for Christians to help the poor and reach out in love to the needy. We pray for the church to fight materialism and for You to raise up and equip leaders. Thank You for working faithfully in all parts of Malaysia. In Jesus' name, amen.
