In Sri Lanka, the lotus flower (Nelum Mala) is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean.

Let us pray for the people of Sri Lanka, even though Christians make up for a small portion of the people here that they would be like that flower, bringing revelation of purity and faithfulness, that they would bring about spiritual awakening to those around them.
