How to Pray

01
Ethnic Malays who convert to Christianity face extreme pressure to return to Islam. Pray that they would persevere and would find community among other Christian believers.
02
Pray for current church planting efforts to stabilize and be healthy.
03
Pray for evangelistic zeal to grow from Christians toward the lost.
04
Pray that the gospel would spread in an environment that is hostile to Christianity, specifically among the Malay. Pray for a non-discriminatory view toward Christians from the government.
05
Pray for the deliverance of trafficking victims and that justice and righteousness would roll down like waters and an ever-flowing stream (Amos 5:24).

Unreached people groups live in areas where Christ is unknown and there is little to no local church presence.
