NATION (MALAYSIA

“This is what the LORD says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hands of their oppressors those who have been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place (Je 22:3, TNIV).

continue to pray:

  • For a society that seeks to do justice & love mercy, looks after & welcomes the poor, the strangers and the oppressed
  • For the governing authorities, the judiciary and the lawmakers: integrity and clean hands
  • For the state of Selangor
    • The controversial appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the Selangor state secretary may lead to a constitutional crisis if the Selangor Sultan carries out a planned swearing-in ceremony for the post on January 6. Constitutional experts argued today that the ceremony, scheduled for next Thursday, was “unlawful” as the state constitution dictates that the oath of office has to be done in front of the Selangor mentri besar, and not the Selangor Sultan. The Selangor government has insisted it has the final say in deciding the state secretary, after the Selangor Sultan agreed with Putrajaya to appoint Mohd Khusrin as state secretary despite Khalid having his own list of names for the top civil service post in the country’s wealthiest state (31/12/10, http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/selangor-row-headiinefor-constitutional-impasse/)

WORLD ( BURMA)

Ask the holy Spirit help you intercede for the Karen people in the refugee camps bordering Thailand & Burma.

Karen oppression continues in Burma, media backout continues

Burman (MNN) -- While January 4 marks Burma's independence, the Karen people there won't celebrate. Thousands have been killed and are now refugees because of attacks by the government. Thousands escaped across the Thai border. Now the Thai military is forcing them to return. Patrick Klein with Vision Beyond Borders says that's not true. The Karen face genocide. "It's estimated that over 3,300 villages have been burned to the ground. Women have been raped and murdered. [They're] putting land mines around the villages and starving people to death. And it seems like the international media is not talking about it." Klein isn't sure why. That's why they produced a DVD documentary and prayer guide. "We're praying for a grass roots movement. We're praying that Christians in America would rise up and say, 'This has got to stop.' First and foremost pray. But also start talking about it. Tell their neighbors; tell their friends. Show the DVD to Bible study groups." Even in the midst of persecution, many Karen are coming to Christ. Your prayerful and financial support can help VBB partners do even more.
