Tibet, we bless you in Jesus’ Name with the warmth of Jesus’ love that melts hard hearts and causes many to recognize the incredible freedom and security that faith in Jesus brings.
Bless the Buddhist monks with spiritual encounters with God that will lead them away from Buddhism to find Jesus Christ.
Pray for children and young people in Tibet who are being so controlled by Chinese propaganda to be protected and to find their identity in Jesus Christ.
Lord, only You can break through the strong power of the bondage of Tibetan Buddhism and the control of the Chinese government. Lord, lead the Tibetan people to the foot of the cross (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 7:10).
Tibet is a Himalayan state considered a part of China. Many desire that Tibet be its own country in its own right. China massacred more than a million people in its reinvasion of Tibet many years ago, but freedom has never been restored and tensions remain high. Chinese surveillance in Tibet and of Tibetan people around the world is all-pervasive. The region remains very poor, and the Chinese government enforces many laws aimed at diminishing Tibetan culture and introducing Chinese culture. Tibet’s exiled Buddhist spiritual leader is the Dalai Lama. His followers see him as a living god, but China views him as a separatist threat. Tibetan Buddhism is an integral part of the Tibetan identity and it is difficult to penetrate with the Gospel. Alongside Buddhism, the traditional religion of Bon also keeps people in spiritual bondage. Christian missionaries are not free to function in Tibet. However, a small Church continues to grow, and Christian resources continue to be accessed online.
