Vietnam

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The Delta variant of COVID-19 is overwhelming Vietnam with more than 2000 new cases each day. The Red Cross warns of the increasingly evident inequities in access to COVID-19 vaccinations. In Vietnam, less than one percent of the population have been vaccinated.  Wealthy nations can secure the purchase of large quantities of vaccinations much more quickly than poorer nations. This kind of inequality is unacceptable, and we raise a battle cry in our prayers on behalf of Vietnam. God, You arm us with strength for battle; You humble the adversaries before us. Please break down this terrible inequality in Jesus’ Name. We declare that God is with us during this pandemic (The Bible, Psalm 18:39).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Economic reforms launched in 1986 have brought about significant growth and development; its performance during recent years has been the fastest in the previous ten. Of its 95 million people, 70 percent are under the age of 35. One of the last Communist states in the world, Vietnam’s government exerts great power. The state enforces strict controls over political and religious expression. House churches remain illegal, and churches must register though approval is rarely given.

Yemen

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, vitalize the Churches to pray and reach out a helping hand to those suffering from the war, disease, and famine. Bolster the Christian Believers with renewed strength to raise their voices for the feeble ones and declare war against the works of the enemy. Inspire the international fraternity to extend needed medical aids, food, and health counselling to the displaced mass of people. Lord, save and preserve the lives of millions of the Yemeni children suffering from extreme starvation, and their education and futures are under constant threat because of the continuing war. Lord, command the war in Yemen to cease as it has led to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with tens of thousands killed, millions displaced and two-thirds of its 30 million population are dependent on aid. Lord, rebuke the beast among the reeds, the herd of bulls among the calves of the nations. Humbled, may the beast bring bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war (The Bible, Psalm 68:30).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the Middle East and has faced decades of instability. Civil war has gripped the country and left the people in desperate need of humanitarian aid. Millions of people face shortages of food and water, and less than half the country’s health facilities are operational. Approximately 16.4 million people currently have no access to healthcare. Cities are continuing to be bombed and the infrastructure is collapsing. There is severe famine in parts of the country. The humanitarian crisis in Yemen is severe as many are starving or on the verge of having nothing to eat. Malnutrition and infant mortality is becoming normal.
