Praying for Laos: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - August 9

Today we pray for Laos, Over 90% of church leaders fled the country in 1975, so there is a huge vacuum of leadership. Yet God continues to breathe His Spirit over the country bringing rapid church growth led by Laotians. Please read pages 522-524.

My prayer for today: Lord, we thank You that although persecution led to many church leaders fleeing, Your Spirit remained in Laos, Your Word remained unhindered by the political climate. We thank You for the growth and for the faithfulness of the persecuted. Lord, we pray for perseverance and grace for those persecution, for discipleship and Biblical literacy for all believers, and for an increased open climate to evangelize and plant churches. We pray that Laotian believers would be able to live peaceful, quiet lives that result in the spread of the Gospel. Help them see Your purposes and Your plan. Raise up leaders and equip the church to reach the unreached. Give more and more believers Your heart for Laos, so we can better support them in prayer. In Jesus' name, amen.
