How to pray for Mainland China?
POPULATION OF CHINA: more than 1.3 billion
LOCATION: East Asia
% of the POPULATION that follow CHINESE FOLK RELIGION: about 29%
(Due to Communism, almost 50% of the population are now classified as non religious)
The growth of the Church in Mainland China since 1977 has been incredible, due to:
– the sacrificial seed sowing of thousands of missionaries for 140 years prior to the Communist take over in 1949
-the millions of intercessors worldwide who have prayed for China.
-the Christians who stood firm despite harsh persecutions.
This incredible growth and receptivity may only be for a season. Materialism with increasing wealth, corruption and moral decline are all working together to blunt the cutting edge of the Church.
Strict controls are maintained over Christian organizations and all unregistered activity is repressed wherever possible.
PRAY for the House Church movement in mainland china. It is growing fast but it needs mature church leaders who can give good teaching and training to the many converts. Pray that the present openness in the midst of opposition may be used to the full.
PRAY also for the registered churches that they always prioritize God’s agenda.
PRAY for the Chinese students who are the key for the future. Pray that the Christians among them will be build up in their faith and be fervent witness for Christ.
