PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

A small number of Christian Believers from a Tibetan Buddhist background are involved in sharing the Gospel with Tibetans in Tibet and surrounding nations, as well as online. Pray that as they share their testimonies, the power of God will testify to the truth of Jesus Christ. Pray for protection over these Believers and ask God to continue to open the doors for their ministry. Pray that signs and wonders will accompany the Gospel message. When the 72 that Jesus sent out returned, they proclaimed, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in Your name.” That is the power of God and the name of Jesus (The Bible, Luke 10:17).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Tibet is a Himalayan state considered a part of China. Many desire that Tibet is its own country. 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. Last year China introduced facial recognition technology to increase its control over its ethnic minorities. Tibet’s exiled Buddhist spiritual leader is the Dalai Lama. His followers see him as a living god, but by China as a separatist threat. China’s extensive crackdown on the Church has meant Christian missionaries are no longer free to function in Tibet either. However, a small Church continues to grow, and Christian resources are available online for people seeking to know more about God and to grow in their Christian faith.
