Rohingya Exodus Continues
Every day, 20,000 Rohingya people are crossing Myanmar’s border into Bangladesh to escape systematic violence by government military forces and radical Buddhist mobs. As many as 421,000 Rohingya have now fled their homes in the state of Rakhine in less than a month, forced to leave after mass killings, rape, torture, and destruction of homes and villages.
God, we pray for the Rohingya refugees who are suffering such horror—lead them to a place of safety. We pray for the government of Bangladesh and for aid agencies straining to respond to the ever-growing human need. We pray for leaders who are making decisions for refugees; by your Spirit, empower their decisions to reflect your love, hope, and the flourishing of all people.
