Leaving all for Christ

Shan-Tai prayer month, day 23

A young man who is a Buddhist monk risks losing all by deciding to follow Jesus wholeheartedly. The hardest persecution to face can be that from one’s own family, the people you love most reject you for your love of Christ.

Pray for:
  • New Shan believers to stand firm as they face persecution and threats (Philippians 1:27–30).

  • Persecutors to see Christ’s light in the lives of Christians and be changed by it  (Matthew 5:16).
