COVID-19 cases have surged again in China with millions of people living under strict lockdown restrictions. This has resulted in the closure of some factories, and the disruption of the transport of goods across the country towards ports. Rising costs of living around the world, the long-term impact of the pandemic, made worse by things like the war in Ukraine which drives prices up, even more, means some analysts are pointing toward a possible global recession. Pray for God’s power to be at work in China, in its government and leadership, and in its millions of people. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” (The Bible, Revelation 1:8).
