Deuteronomy 8:17-18 ESV – 17 Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ 18 You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
Remember. . .
Do not forget . . .
So often repeated because we so often forget.
We forget that we are the creation, not the creator.

We forget that God will fulfill His purpose for us

and we do not remember that our times are in God’s hands

Psalm 119:54-55 ESV – 54 Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning. 55 I remember your name in the night, O LORD, and keep your law.

2021 has been a momentous year for Myanmar and
for the Christian community in the country. After the
military coup in February 2021, fighting has continued in
predominantly Christian states like Kachin State, Karen
State or in northern Shan State. Churches have been
destroyed and Christians killed in Chin State (another
majority-Christian region) and churches and pastors
have been targeted
Day 1: Pray that God will touch and soften the hearts of
Myanmar’s military leaders and give them a desire for
peace and reconciliation.
