Father we come before you in Jesus’ name. I ask you to cover every prayer warrior today under the shadow of you wings, under the blood of Jesus Christ that we all would remain hidden and concealed in you–even to the vanishing point from the enemy. We recognize that we do not war against Burmese military but the principalities, forces of darkness, and wickedness in high places that operate through them. We put on the full armor of God from head to toe. We cast down thoughts, reasons, theories of man and command our own thoughts to be in obedience to Jesus Christ. (II Corinthians 3). Holy Spirit, please help us pray as promised in Romans 8, with groanings and utterings too deep for words. Search out the Father’s heart and breathe his desires through us in Jesus’ name.
We LIFT UP THE CROSS of JESUS over the Kachin, Chin, and Karen (kah-REN) Christians inside Burma. Father, we ask for the Spirit of Wisdom (Isaiah 11) to minister direction to the Christian leaders there. Just as the Spirit of the Lord was upon Jesus on the earth, we now partake of that SAME SPIRIT together with our Burmese brothers and sisters–The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11). Father, I go beyond asking for protection for our Christian Burmese family. I ask that the soldiers in the government army will SEE ANGELS protecting these people and run in the fear of God. I ask for transformed hearts in the soldiers and the government leaders. Father, send your counselors like Daniel right into the heart of this controlling wickedness.
Please grant the Christians courage to advance, that they will not feel paralyzed with fear or worry. Grant them GRACE to put on the shoes of peace and move forward in building your kingdom inside Burma.
We join with the prayers of Burma’s first missionaries, Adoniram and Ann Judson, and we ask that BURMA SHALL BE SAVED in JESUS’ MIGHTY NAME! AMEN.
