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!
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.
