Weekly Watch Focus: Revival in China

FRIDAY, Dec 5, 2014, In this Christmas Season, we celebrate the rapid spread of Christianity in China. In an article this November, the secular magazine, Economist, recognized that at this present rate of swift growth there will be 250 million committed Christian believers in China. Despite the Communist party’s consistent persecution over the last half-century, Christianity has steadily spread. It is getting harder for the Communist government to control this revival which is even spreading within its own party ranks. Many in the intelligentsia discern the roots of Western strength are its Christian foundations. They are recognizing that Christian believers make some of the most conscientious, helpful citizens. Let us praise God for the revival of Christianity in China. Pray for the 1,000s of house churches and their pastors.  We pray for those who still undergo persecution. May the Holy Spirit continue to sweep through every corner of China. We bless the Church in China this Christmas.

Is. 60:1,2, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.”

Acts 2:18, “And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.” 

Joel 2:28, 29, “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”

2 Cor. 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

Matt. 24:14, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." 

Habakkuk 2:14, “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”

We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
