MYANMAR: Pray for the Family of Murdered Christian

‘Than’ a 37-year-old Christian father of five, was brutally murdered by unknown attackers recently. His wife, Aung, discovered his body on the side of the road, covered in blood, as she returned from collecting firewood for cooking.

Than’s killers had slit his wrists, stabbed him in the chest and beat him severely.

In early 2017, a villager known to hate Christians told Than’s family that it wasn’t wise for them to live in the animist village. And about a month before his murder, several members of the Palaung Army had visited the village several times and questioned villagers. The soldiers tried to get Than to buy drugs for them, but he refused.

The family has been shunned ever since Than and Aung accepted Christ and were baptised in 2008.

  • Pray that God will meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of Than’s family and that they will remain firm in their faith.
  • Ask God to use this tragedy to draw many to Himself; may he also encourage the faith of other believers in the area who face opposition.
  • Pray for the perpetrators, ask the Lord to remove the violence and hatred from their hearts and pour a new Spirit into them.
