Order a Prayer Lantern Day 30: PRAY FOR MALAYSIA Malaysia is still known as probably the best role model of a liberal and tolerant Islamic country in the world. This image is increasingly fading, especially given incidents that have occurred over the past year. One example of this is the effort to introduce Sharia penal law (hudud) in the federal state of Kelantan. Its implementation requires amendments to the federal law, so the introduction is still pending, but it clearly shows an increasing Islamic conservatism. The opposition parties even split over this issue in June 2015, which in the long term might mean that Islamic parties currently opposed to each other might unite to protect Islam. Observers are calling the Malaysian society increasingly racist, as the ethnic Malay majority is clearly being favored, while the Chinese and Indian ethnicities (as well as the indigenous tribal population) living in the eastern part of Malaysia are discriminated against. Malaysia has witnessed an increasing political, social and religious instability recently, and there are no signs that these developments will cease any time soon. PRAYPray for secret gatherings of believers from a Muslim background (MBBs). Pray for new believers who are kicked out of their homes or sent to Islamic re-education camps. Pray that physically and mentally abused Christians would be able to forgive their persecutors.READ Psalm 62:1Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.
