Our Father in heaven, We confess that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation, to the Jew, to the Greek, and to the peoples of Vietnam. We ask that you might open the hearts of many Vietnamese who have never heard of Jesus so that they might repent and believe. Have mercy on the peoples of Vietnam, and turn rebels into servants of the Most High God. May these precious people look in faith to the Lord Jesus and receive the free gift of eternal life. How we long to hear of their conversion!
The Viet-Kinh people group is the largest group in Vietnam, making up 86 percent of the population. Though they have many Christian resources in the Vietnamese language, they are still considered to be unreached with the gospel. Only about 1.2 percent of the over 78 million Viet-Kinh are followers of Christ.
Father in Heaven,
We thank you that you are sovereign over all countries, all peoples, and all circumstances. You (and only you) can sustain people through difficult circumstances and deliver people from difficult circumstances. We now ask you to do both for the people of Vietnam in accordance with your perfect will.
During the month of May, we asked you to pray intentionally and specifically for the people of Vietnam. We recently shared two stories of how God is already answering your prayers. We are excited to share two more amazing stories of how God is calling the peoples of Vietnam to Himself. Rejoice with us over these new brothers and sisters in Christ and continue to pray for many more to respond to the gospel.
In many Asian cultures, family is integral in most parts of life. This is also true in Vietnam where multiple generations often live in the same house. Traditions, customs, and spiritual beliefs are passed down from generation to generation quite fluidly as grandparents, parents, and children live under the same roof.
