- Lord, send families that follow Jesus and His teachings together to live among the Malay people. Help them show honor, forgiveness and the love of Jesus to one another and to Malay families. Bring Godly businessmen into their communities, who are following Jesus as part of daily life, not just a religion.
- Lord, use the Scriptures in their own Bahasa language to reveal Your love to the Malay families. Heal their bodies and answer their prayers through Jesus. Thank You that Scriptures in three Bahasa Malaysian dialects are available in written, audio and children’s versions on the internet and through phone apps (like YouVersion).
- Lord, heal and strengthen Malay families, turning their hearts toward You and each other. Give them the power to share Your loving care, forgiveness, and Good News with their relatives, neighbors and the poor. God, please raise up a new generation of Malays to bring Your Word and blessing to other people groups too!
God’s blessing for the Malays: I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD. (Ps. 40:1,3)
