PRAYER FOR CHINA AND TAIWAN
When asked what three things the western church could provide for the church
in China, a humble pastor responded, "Number one, prayer — number
two, prayer — and number three, prayer."
Things of material value were in his grasp for the asking but, understanding the value of a praying people, this Chinese pastor could only imagine what could be accomplished when the church came together in prayer. The request of yesterday remains the request of today.
|Prayer is essential for the following areas:|
||Pray for the protection of our brethren who face arrest, interrogation, and at times, prison sentences for their zeal to preach the gospel.|
||Pray for the families of those who are arrested - much like in your own nation, a person who is arrested becomes a stigma of society (the community does not understand anything except what they are told and the officials speak against the Lord's faithful in a negative light).|
||Pray for our translation team as they endeavor to translate Apostolic material. Pray that funds will be readily available to distribute the much needed literature into the hands of believers.|
||Pray that leaders will rise up with a sincere desire to lead groups of people in a greater understanding of the Word of the Lord.|
||Pray that signs and wonders will continue to be manifested for the strength of the church and the conversion of new souls. The rapid growth of the church demands this.|
||Pray for government officials on the county, municipal, provincial, and national levels. Many of the directives handed down from the central government are abused by local officials and thus cause a greater persecution of the church.|
