Day 39: 50 Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church: China

We pray today for the believers in China. The government is working hard to tighten controls on Christianity and the spread of this faith. One might assume that the size of China and the vast number of people is one positive hindrance to the enforcement of these new laws.

 

Of the population of 1.37 Billion, there are an estimated 85 million believers. For more information check out Open Doors USA.

 

Father, we pray for China. When we see the numbers, we think that there are a huge number of believers, but once we compare it to the total amount of the population we see that it is very similar to other countries on this list.  We pray that God you will open the eyes of the Chinese people to your sovereignty. That you are the creator and that their views on the world have been misguided. Give wisdom and knowledge to the Chinese believers as they take the steps of faith to reach their communities. Holy Spirit guide your people, protect them from persecution, give them many opportunities to reach the lost. Amen
