Please pray that the Lord Jesus Christ build his church in Vietnam, planting churches that say “yes” and “amen” to his sovereign plan. May he grant to this country a church that delights in all that God is, like we find in Isa 46:8-10:
“Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors, remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose….'” (ESV)
“Hãy nhớ mọi sự đó, hãy rõ ra là đấng trượng phu! Hỡi kẻ phạm tội, hãy nghĩ lại! Hãy nhớ lại những sự ngày xưa; vì ta là Ðức Chúa Trời, và chẳng có Chúa nào khác; ta là Ðức Chúa Trời, chẳng có ai giống như ta. Ta đã rao sự cuối cùng từ buổi đầu tiên, và đã nói từ thuở xưa những sự chưa làm nên. Ta phán rằng: Mưu của ta sẽ lập, và ta sẽ làm ra mọi sự ta đẹp ý.”
“Because the gospel is true—because Jesus is the precious ‘living Stone’ (1 Pet. 2:4-8), I will not despair when I am weak in concentration and focus. Indeed, Father, you’re not calling me to trust in my ability to trust, but to trust in you—in your trustworthiness, not in mine. For you’ve even promised your children a peace that passes, surpasses, and at times even bypasses all understanding. Hallelujah!”

Pray for the people of Vietnam. May God cause thousands more Vietnamese to be born again as the gospel is preached and shared throughout the land. All hail the name of Jesus!
