Prayers for NAMB Missionaries

Mike & Amy Smith, Command Chaplain; Carrier Air Wing One, NAS Oceana, VA

Prayers for Persecuted Church:

World Watch List #17 — China


The church in China continues to enjoy strong growth; however, life for Christians is anything but straightforward. The policy of “Sinicizing” the church has been implemented nationwide, as the Communist Party limits whatever it perceives as a threat to its rule and ideology. Thousands of churches have been damaged or closed. In some parts of China, children under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to attend church—part of the country’s efforts to stunt future growth.


• Ask the Lord to give church leaders wisdom, discernment and guidance as they lead congregations in light of increased restrictions and surveillance.

• Lift up in prayer all who have left their former religion to follow Jesus. Pray they will be protected from harm, strengthened in their faith and empowered in their witness.

• Ask the Lord to open the eyes of those in authority to the unequalled power and beauty of the gospel.
