Our King is Present in All the Dong Areas

Many of our prayer requests are centered on the gatherings of Dong Christians (the churches, villages, and families), but today, we want to focus our prayers on the many individual Christians who are totally isolated from all Christian fellowship. Not only do they not have encouragement and guidance in their walk with Christ, but there is a danger of allowing their relationship with Christ to slowly falter.

There are no other known Christians where these individuals live. We have heard reports of Christians in almost every Dong county, but most of those counties have less than five: one here and maybe two there. There are very few "meeting points" of worshippers. Most of these heard about Christ either from tourists passing through or as they were in the bigger cities studying or working.

It is truly difficult to pursue the Lord in total isolation. However, the Spirit is everywhere. To all those individuals scattered throughout the Dong areas, the Spirit can fill, console, guide, and strengthen. Let us pray a prayer used by Christians for hundreds of years, but pray it for them:

Heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of truth, Who art everywhere present and fillest all things, O treasury of every good and Bestower of life: come and dwell in us, and cleanse us from every stain, and save our souls, O Good One.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.
