  • Heavenly Father I pray that somehow, someway what the enemy meant for evil You would turn to good. I pray that the authorities would see how Jesus changes people and they would be compelled to learn more and be a part of it. I pray for conversations about Jesus to become even more popular in this area and for fear to be dismantled and brought down.

  • Father God, Pastor Luo was obviously aware of the risks he was taking in this day long event in the Wuhan province. We ask that the gospel would spread like wildfire in this province devastated by COVID19 and that in the midst of a Chinese crackdown on Christianity that in fact, their efforts to curtail faith would fail miserably. Bring many to Jesus.
