Cayman Islands: This British Territory has no unreached people groups and all people groups claim Christianity as their primary religion, with the population being 77% Christian. Yet only 21% are evangelical, and as a whole the citizens are very materialistic and wealthy. The Cayman Islands are famous as a big business and financial center, and the most notorious tax haven in the world. They are also well know for tourism, with over a million tourists visiting annually, taking advantage of the many plush resorts, beautiful waters, and fishing, as well as the complete lack of direct taxes. However, everything is very expensive, which is how the island pays for itself. Many people are very well off, so most of the workers are people from other nations on work visas. Please pray for evangelical churches and Christians to continue to be grounded in God's Word, growing in His grace and knowledge as the witnesses of Jesus Christ Who for their sakes became poor that in His poverty they might become rich, not in material things, but eternal things. Pray for nominal "Christians", tourists and migrant workers to hear the Gospel, and that the Gospel might be spread through tourists and migrant workers, as well as citizens, who are believers. Pray for the casting down of the idols of wealth and corruption, as people repent and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. "Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property. And Jesus, looking around, said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!” The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” They were even more astonished and said to Him, “Then who can be saved?” Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:21-27).

Praying for Malaysia

Malaysian States - Selangor (Petaling, Klang, Kuala Langat, Sepang & Hulu Langat Districts): More and more, Malaysian Muslims, seem to be more open-minded, speaking of how each person must find their own path, their own way. Other peoples religions and cultures are to be respected, and we should try not to offend each other. Yet Malays who become Christians are subject to persecution by their families, communities, and Muslim religious leaders and members of the mosques, and even the government, as a Malay being anything but Muslim is illegal. While different in degrees and styles, there are cultural and religious pluralism, ideas of relative and subjective truth, persecution, and a fear of suffering for Christ, in Malaysia as well as in the United States of America. Please pray for the few Christians in Selangor, throughout Malaysia, and in the USA, that the perfect love of God in Jesus Christ will cast out all fear. Pray that Christians will be bold and courageous witnesses for Christ, as salt and light in our villages, towns, cities, rural areas, at work, at school, in the market places, in places of recreation. Pray for the multiplying of Christians and churches who are true disciples and disciple makers. Pray for the salvation of Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists, and cultural "Christians", all who are lost, alone and without God in the world and for eternity. Pray for the lost to repent and trust in Jesus Christ alone, crucified, risen and ascended, as the only way to The Father. "So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:22-31).
