China: China remains officially atheist, and Communist Party members number well over 70 million. But the Christian population has eclipsed this number (it is also far outstripped by Chinese Buddhists). Increasing numbers of Party members are believers. Pray that the atheism promoted for so long – and now so assiduously propagated in the education system – will finally be revealed as hollow and deceptive lies. Pray also that all followers of Christ working in state structures might walk faultlessly and be a redemptive force within the government.



• Pray for continued Church growth and pure biblical teaching amid ongoing persecution.

 

• Pray for Jesus' teachings to take deep root in the culture and expose all false religions.

 

• Pray for a renewed value for life to abolish abortion, suicide, abandonment, and human trafficking.

Praying for Malaysia

Malaysian States - Negeri Sembilan (Jelebu & Jempol Districts): Jelebu & Jempol are the 2nd and 1st largest districts in Nigeri Sembilan. Jelebu has a memorial to honor Queen Victoria of England, and Jempol has a memorial, a well-preserved house, to "Pendita Za'ba", a learned man of Malaysia who made contributions in the economic, political and social fields. As Christians, we are not to build memorials or memorial churches to ourselves, but we are to remember and honor Christ alone in all things. God calls us to be who He wants us to be where we are and then wherever He may lead us. It is when people first begin to follow Jesus that they may be best equipped to share the Gospel with their families and neighbors. The longer they wait the harder it can be. While going to other places and peoples is great when one is called by God to do so, influencing others for the Gospel and glorifying God must begin at home. Involvement and membership in a good church is vital but only for strength and support in, never the neglect of, having Gospel conversations and building Gospel friendships with our households and in our communities. This is as true in Malaysia or the USA as it is anywhere else. Please pray for believers new and old in Christ, in Malaysia and everywhere, to begin at home and in their community to reach others for Christ, doing everything else including being involved in their church for the sake of the Gospel. Pray for believers not to hide in their churches but to be holy and bold witnesses for Christ first where they are then wherever God may call them later. Pray for the lost to repent and believe in Christ through the witness of godly Christians. "As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him. And He did not let him, but He said to him, “Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.” And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed." (Mark 5:18-20).
