Call to Prayer for Myanmar

Please view the following video in which American Baptist Churches USA Interim General Secretary, Dr. C. Jeff Woods, briefly shares about our historic connection to Myanmar (formerly Burma) and introduces the American Baptist Call to Prayer for the people of Myanmar and the Burma Diaspora resource page. 

On this page, you will find additional documents and links to other sources through which you can learn more about the American Baptist relationship with the people from Myanmar and the current sociopolitical situations in Myanmar. We also provide prayer and worship resources that individuals and faith communities can use in their homes, church meetings, and worship services that we hope will assist you in centering God in your desire and efforts to discern your Christian witness amidst these challenging times. 

Starting in the month of March, 2021, we ask that you consider setting aside time(s) to lift up prayers individually or collectively, and to also consider ways you can serve as an action of your support in the coming weeks and months. While there is no designated day, we highlight that the World Day of Prayer falls on Friday, March 5 this year.
