PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Praise Report

Praise the Lord that Christian ministries have been able to respond with relief and aid during floods and other natural disasters, offering hope and a way to regain a future  (The Bible, 1 John 3:18).

Prayer Requests

Pray for Christian Believers who are involved in teaching and discipling new Believers, as well as teaching churches in rural communities. Pray that the teaching will be sound and that new Believers will quickly grow strong in the Lord (The Bible, Ephesians 6:10).

Pray for the protection of those who are vulnerable and marginalized. Pray for women and children, the desperately poor. May the Church rise to bless those and protect those who need it most (The Bible, Psalm 12:5).

Call to Salvation

Pray for those who are sick, those who are unemployed and have no hope for their future, that they will turn to the Lord at this time and be saved (The Bible, Isaiah 45:22).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The third largest Muslim majority country in the world, Bangladesh, is densely populated. Corruption and widespread human rights abuses remain challenges, as do regular widespread flooding and other climate-related natural disasters. The nation’s politics continues its slow slide from the pro-independence protest movement of the late 1960s, towards an increasingly one-party-dominated political horizon.  Despite persecution against Christian Believers, the Church has grown in faith, boldness, and numbers. Bangladesh continues to host most of the world’s Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, one of the largest and most devastating refugee crises in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic was very damaging for Bangladesh’s economic, social, and healthcare sectors, but recovery was gaining momentum until the recent global food and fuel shortages began to take their toll.
