Specific Prayers:

  • Lord, send Han Chinese believers to show the compassion of Christ towards the Uyghurs, and to love and protect their families during this time of crisis. Humble the Chinese authorities, as true authority only comes from You, the Lord of heaven. Please deliver the Uyghers and other peoples of China from unjust oppression.
  • Lord, strengthen any Uyghur believers as they suffer. May your Holy Spirit fill the internment camps, bringing the believers Your peace and presence. Give them access to Your Word and the power to love and lead others to You.
  • Lord, open the hearts of Uyghur families and religious leaders to Jesus, so He can bring God's forgiveness and blessings to their communities. Reveal to them that Jesus suffered even death so they can have eternal life, and help them spread this to others.

You heard my plea: "Do not close Your ears to my cry for relief." You came near when I called You, and You said, "Do not fear." O Lord, You took up my case; You redeemed my life. (Lam. 3:56-58)
