Cambodia

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Five years after the murder of political commentator and human rights advocate, Kem Ley, there has been no justice for his family. Inadequately investigated, the case has never been resolved appropriately. Pray for the family of Mr. Ley. Ask that the love of Jesus will be revealed to them, and that the Gospel will find its way into this family. Instead of death, suffering, and poverty, we declare that Cambodia will sing for joy. We speak over the Church in this nation, the joy of the Lord in the face of persecution, and a multiplying movement of people coming to know Jesus as Lord and Savior (The Bible, Psalm 66:1).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Cambodia is notorious for the Khmer Rouge and landmines. That was 40 years ago, though, and the nation has enjoyed relative peace since then. Even so, the news still reports on frequent hidden landmine explosions that leave people limbless. It is a poor nation, and corruption runs rampant. The sex industry thrives. One third of Cambodians live on less than one dollar per day, yet it is still one of the region’s fastest growing economies.
