“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24
I’ve been around lots of sand this week. The area of Phan Rang-Thap Cham is known in part for its inland sand dunes and later I’ve gone to the beach as well. Makes me think of Jesus’ admonition to build our lives on Him – that He is as solid as a rock and that we should avoid building on anything else that is only like sand. Praying that the Cham people and others of the Phan Rang area would not build their lives on the sand but rather build on Jesus Christ alone!
Journey Prayers – Week 7
Praying for the Cham people and the Vietnamese of Phan Rang
- The Cham people are largely followers of Islam although you will also see Cham who are Hindu and specifically follow Brahmanism. Elements of animism and ancestor worship are also common in their beliefs. The Cham people are unreached with at best a small fraction of 1% are Believers. Pray for laborers to come and share the Gospel, disciple Believers and start churches among the Cham in Vietnam.
- Pray for the few Cham Believers who face significant opposition from their families and other Cham people and likewise face persecution from authorities. Pray for strengthened faith and boldness.
- Pray for the families of Phan Rang city both Cham and Vietnamese. Pray for the Gospel to spread among young families who would in turn grow and serve as leaders among new church starts in the city.
