There will be a Global day of prayer on Sunday March 12 for Burma (Myanmar). Burma is a country in South East Asia. The military government which seized power in 1962 has since waged a brutal war against rebel ethnic groups and has been carrying out acts of genocide against its own people.
The acts of genocide are still continuing. A recent article in the Daily Telegraph gives an overview of the facts.
In 1997 during the Burma Army offensives the Free Burma Rangers were formed, when villages were destroyed, people killed and over 100,000 thousand fled their homes. Over 2 million people are now displaced inside Burma. In the face of the overwhelming force of the dictators army, the Free Burma Rangers organized with the idea that no one can stop people from giving love and serving each other. During this time the Global Day of Prayer was started.
Take time on Sunday to pray for Burma.
