Isaiah 61:1, NIV
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness for the prisoners...

Pray for the Lamet people to be set free from spiritual darkness.

Lamet People

by CR

Many evil spirits were cast out, screaming as they left their victims. And many who had been paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was great joy…. (Acts 8:7-8, NLT)
In Samaria Philip proclaimed Jesus and performed miracles to bring freedom and healing. Today in northwestern Laos the unreached Lamet people group number about 24,000 souls. Like the Sou we prayed for yesterday, the Lamet live in remote mountainous villages. They too are trapped in animism, believing that evil and good spirits are found everywhere in non-living objects.
The Lamet also worship their ancestors. They believe these ancestor spirits provide well-being for their households. Spirit practitioners sacrifice to the village spirits and conduct ceremonies and celebrations that the Lamet enjoy.
This isolated people group does farming, hunting, and fishing. They trade with Lao and Thai peoples for tools, clothes, and pottery. Some Lamet find part-time jobs in the lowlands where they are called “kha” (slaves).
The people speak a language called Lamet, but they have no written language. There are a small number of Lamet audio Bible teachings available to them. Work is in progress to translate scriptures into their language. As yet, however, few Lamet people have heard the gospel.

Pray for protection and blessing for those translating the Bible into Lamet. Ask God to stir and anoint the few Lamet believers so they will share Christ with their people. Pray for evangelists and church planters to help start a Lamet church, leading to a disciple making movement.
