In May this year, new measures by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) went into effect. These measures include strict monitoring and surveillance, and they forbid churches from “interfering” in anything related to the education and everyday life of church attenders and other citizens. Today we pray that the favor of the Lord our God may rest on Christians in China. May His favor establish the work of their hands. Pray for protection over churches in this Christmas season in particular. Pray that the joy of the Lord will permeate every meeting of every Christian fellowship across this nation (The Bible, Psalm 90:17).
