Many in Taiwan are hoping that the way Ukraine, with international support, has pushed back against Russia, will dissuade China from invading Taiwan. Polls of the general public reveal that most people don’t believe China will invade. However, since the Chinese president was elected for a third term, there has been a growing sense amongst the government that Taiwan must take China’s threats very seriously and prepare in earnest. Pray for wisdom and grace. Pray that the Lord’s sovereign plans and purposes will prevail. As we celebrate the joy of Christmas, pray that the Taiwanese Church will be encouraged (The Bible, Colossians 1:16-17).
