Myanmar (MNN) ― Christians in Myanmar experience some of the worst religious discrimination in the world.

Earlier this month, a U.S. government agency recommended that Myanmar stay blacklisted in the top 15 world governments with ongoing violations of religious freedom.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedoms said in its annual report, “Ongoing and important political reforms in Burma have yet to significantly improve the situation for freedom of religion and belief.”

In the midst of religious discrimination, the Methodist Church of Lower Myanmar is holding a prayer conference in tomorrow, May 25. Bishop Zothan Mawia, who serves as honorary national director of Asian Access/Myanmar, arrived there on Thursday May 23 to prepare for the conference.

According to Mawia, “We have invited from all denominations prayer warriors to come together at the Methodist English Church where we will be praying for our country.”

Specifically, the conference will be focusing on prayer for “the leaders of [Myanmar], the ministers, and for peace in our country; for the conflict between the Muslims, the Buddhists, and also among the ethnic groups,” says Mawia.

The program with Asian Access stands out as it encourages Christians to promote Christ’s peace and truth. Mawia hopes Christians in Myanmar embrace this call “that we may be a channel of peace, a channel of love, and a channel of forgiveness and reconciliation.”

Would you take some time out of your day tomorrow and pray for Myanmar?
