Prayer for Burma: Day eighteen

The focus of this daily prayer is to mark the 1988 protests and their violent and brutal suppression, in ways that pray for the present. For people faced with the power of an unrestrained government determined to suppress any demand for change the knowledge that others “outside” know and care is precious. Today we are visiting a local church that is sending a team to Mae Sot and to PhoPra soon. So let’s pray for such visits. That the foreigners who go may be humble and open, listen and learn, friendly and respectful. That the hosts who receive them, with generosity and warmth, may receive blessing in return for their gifts of food and housing, time and care. That those who visit may remember and when they return home talk to friends and neighbours.
