Prayer for China

“O Lord, we rejoice at the rapid rate of Church growth in China.  Only You know the number of Christian believers in that vast county.  We want to pray today especially for our brothers and sisters in the city of Wenzhou, which has so many Christians that it is sometimes called “China’s Jerusalem,” and for the rest of the province of Zhejiang in which the city is situated.  We ask for an end to the surge of violence against church buildings in the province last year, during which hundreds were targeted for demolition and at least 410 crosses were torn down.  We pray that You will cause the Chinese authorities to look favourably on the growing number of Christians and recognise them as people who contribute to a peaceful, harmonious society.  We ask this in the Name of the Lord Jesus, the Prince of Peace.”
