Praying for China regions and provinces Ningxia Hui, Qinghai, and Shaanxi: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - April 15 (Day 107)

Today we continue to see God's heart for diverse corners of the world as we pray for 3 more provinces of China. Please read pages 241-243 and we'll pray for Ningxia Hui, Qinghai, and Shaanxi.

My prayer for today: Lord, we thank You for the turning to Christianity that is seen in Ningxia Hui. We praise You that You are at work among this Muslim people group. We pray for Christians who are serving the poor and for churches to form for these new believers to grow deep into Your Word. We pray against violence and for the Hui to understand that becoming a Christian will not mean they are no longer Hui. Help them to understand that You love their ethnic distinctiveness. Guide Hui believers to know what aspects of their culture can be redeemed for Your glory. For Qinghai, we pray for full recovery and development from the 2010 earthquake. We ask You to break the fatalistic worldview of the Tibetan Buddhists - give them a since of Your hope and the plans You have for them, according to Jeremiah 29:11. And for Shaanxi, Lord, thank You for birthing Christianity here. We pray for the church to grow deep in Your word. Raise up leaders who will give solid discipleship. Bring the students here to faith in You and help them learn how to integrate it into their life after graduation. In Jesus' name, amen.
