Prayer Request for Bangladesh

'I wanted to give you all an update about the political situation here and would really appreciate prayer for Bangladesh at the moment. The current government announced on Monday evening the date for the general election which will be 5th January. The main opposition party were not happy and one hour after the announcement called a country blockade which then developed into a hortal (country wide strike). If that's all it was it would be OK however it brings disturbance, violence and many injuries. Since Monday evening nine people have been killed, very many injured, 50 buses burnt and lots more damage and disruption to everyday life.

  Please pray that all the violence, beatings and killings will stop and that the parties will get around a table and discuss this country's future.'
