John Piper: 6 Ways to React to the Cyclone, Prayer for Myanmar (Burma)

May 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Below is a summary of John Piper’s 6 ways to react to the cyclone that hit Myanmar (Burma) over the weekend. The number of dead and missing has passed 60,000. The original article goes into much more depth, so I encourage the read.

  1. Be softened to the pain nearby.
  2. Pray for the followers of Christ in Myanmar.
  3. Pray for the millions of unbelievers near the calamity and far from it.
  4. Pray for those of us who live in the seeming security and prosperity of America.
  5. Give money to replenish the coffers of compassion.
  6. Muster a team from your church, and when the doors are open, be ready to go

I’ve also listed Operation World’s challenges for prayer for Myanmar as context for prayer regarding the cyclone. Again, the original article goes into much more depth:

  1. Four decades of repressive military rule have isolated the nation and brought it to destitution… Pray that the international community and the other ASEAN members might speak out and act to bring democracy. Pray for an orderly transfer to a just and democratic government that will rebuild the country with both democratic and religious freedom.
  2. There has been continual warfare since 1942… Pray for ethnic harmony, effective federalism and peace.
  3. The isolation of the Church in Myanmar has lasted for 30 years… Pray for the removal of restrictions on fellowship with Christians from other lands.
  4. The military regime is seeking to marginalize and even eliminate the Church, yet growth continues… Pray that the Christians may continue to evangelize every sub-group in their respective peoples and reach out to other unreached peoples and to the Burmese majority.
  5. Challenges facing the Church in Myanmar: Fortitude and faithfulness under persecution, that the Bible may retain its rightful place in the affections of both leaders and church members, revival among nominal third- and fourth-generation Christians, that Christians from minority groups may not cause bitterness, hatred of other peoples, compromise of their faith, or blunting of a missions vision, and reconciliation and unity among Christians.
  6. Theological education… Pray specifically for the 15 member institutions of the evangelical Myanmar Theological Association.
  7. Buddhism is strongly entrenched among the Burmese majority… Pray for significant breakthroughs in every people and demonstrations of the power of Jesus. Pray also for conversions among the 750,000 Buddhist monks – many of whom have shown great interest in Christian radio broadcasts.
  8. The least evangelized people, including the Bama (Burmese) people and the Shan who are staunchly Buddhist.
  9. The missionary vision of the Church… Pray for this vision to be sustained, supported and expanded and then bear much fruit.
  10. Christian help ministries for prayer: Bible shortage, Bible translation, Christian radio.
