Khmer in Cambodia
Main Religion: Buddhism
Evangelical Christian: 1.9%
History: Cambodia is similar in area to the state of Oklahoma and is home to 14.5 million people. Ninety-eight percent of Cambodians practice Buddhism. Cambodia is rebuilding after suffering decades of war and the ravages of AIDS/HIV. The nation of Cambodia is young and poor, “more than 50% of the population is less than 25 years old. The population lacks education and productive skills, particularly in the impoverished countryside, which also lacks basic infrastructure.”
- Christian leaders to be raised up. God’s Word to spread and churches to be planted. The desire to see spiritual growth increase.
- New Christians to be biblically discipled and to grow in Jesus.
- SEAPC (South East Asia Prayer Center) to have inroads in the public schools and universities to teach English through learning the bible.
- Literacy of the younger generations. That the children would learn to read and write, so they have brighter futures.
- The local schools and communities to take advantage of the entrepreneurship educational and vocational training being offered.
- Human trafficking to be fought against and purity taught.
- Praying for the New Hope for Orphans children’s home in Pursat, Cambodia.
