The majority religion in Vietnam is ancestor worship. It is pervasive throughout the culture. Sacrifices of incense, food, ceremonial money or luxury items (in paper form) are all sacrificed or offered to the spirits of dead ancestors. This is done in the hopes that the ancestors be appeased or will even grant favor. Sacrifices are made at many times of the year for special occasions, when a specific need or crisis arises and also consistently on the 1st and 15th of the lunar month. Pray for Vietnam. Pray for the peoples of Vietnam to find the only path to salvation and fulfillment through Jesus Christ.
