Editor’s Note: A Word for China: “This Nation Shall Wear The Crown of Life!”
By: Veronika West
Date:February 13, 2020
I heard The Spirit say, “Have I not said the nation of China is at a spiritual tipping point?
Now see! For the spotlight of heaven now shines upon the nation of china.
Watch! For the cries of a remnant have been heard in My Courts and so My Grace shall be poured out upon this nation and even where the spirit of death has ravaged the land and the people have raped creation, My Grace, My Grace, shall be poured out upon a nation that have been brought to its knees.
Watch and pray, as new and greater life shall emerge from the darkness that covers the land and its people.
For China shall arise from the ashes of death and destruction and My Name shall be upon their lips, and My Glory shall be upon their heads and the nations of the earth shall be drawn to the brightness of their rising.
China shall become as a sign and wonder among the nations! Yes! A sign of My saving Grace and a wonder of My Miracle working power.
The nation of China shall be sifted as wheat and shall surely be shaken to its core.
But fear not! For I shall breath resurrection life and power over this land and I shall expose every stronghold and every demonic stranglehold and I shall reveal the beauty that has been hidden beneath.
Watch and pray! For China shall wear The Crown of Life and shall become a nation set apart for My Kingdom Purposes in the nations of the earth.
China, My Eye is upon you, and My Hand of Judgement and Justice now comes against you, but like Job, you shall declare in the days ahead… “We have known Him by the hearing of our ears but now our eyes have seen Him”….” says The Spirit of The Living God.

Declaration Prayer: Proclaiming for Chinese Revival and Destiny
【Background: The Chinese nation is now at a spiritual turning point. In this season, we are called to exercise our true identity and authority as kings and priests of the kingdom of God.

- Fulfilling the Destiny of Chinese: The powerful love and redemption of the Lord Jesus remove the fear, shame, and little faith of the Chinese, so that the Chinese can boldly followed Jesus’ footsteps, and fulfilled the destiny of the Chinese- “Let my people go and serve me.” (Ex. 8: 1) Help the Chinese church enter the mission of the last-day gospel army, let the wind of the harvest blow on the threshing fields of all nations, and draw millions of people to return to the kingdom of God.

May You turn the hearts of fathers and mothers, sons and daughters back to each other (Malachi 4:6)!

There is no specific agenda, just to pray and worship together to seek the Lord and to build relationships with each other. Thanks to God for His leading and abundant supply. Through Chinese leaders from all over the country, the gathering will be held as scheduled this week (February 20-22). We believe that this meeting is just the beginning. Although, it is a small gathering, God says, “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. (Luke 12:32). Please pray for this gathering again, for God’s will be done. 】

Please fill the meeting with Your Holy Spirit and releases Your anointing of love and unity, so everyone will experience no fear in love to be able to communicate openly, to build each other up, to understand Your earnest desire for a family and to establish a true family relationship, so the tribes of the Aboriginal people can also enter the journey of the family to walk together with one heart and to receive their destined blessing (Jer. 32:39)!
- More Ethnic Group To Walk With The Native American: Heavenly Father, thank You so much for leading the Chinese in North American to learn to walk together and build a family with one heart. We believe that You want the Chinese to be a blessing to the Aborigines and to the United States. May You also touch the hearts of more ethnic groups to understand Your calling and destiny to the Aboriginal people, and are willing to walk with the Aboriginal people. Raise them up to stand in their place and to fulfill God’s revival plan!

Declaration Prayer: Proclaiming for Chinese Revival and Destiny
【Background: The Chinese nation is now at a spiritual turning point. In this season, we are called to exercise our true identity and authority as kings and priests of the kingdom of God. When the large-scale epidemic “Coronavirus” broke out in Wuhan on January 21, it spreads at a very fast pace which causing loss of lives and many people were infected. Many cities in China are being isolated and public transportation is shutting down. Asia and the world are also under the shadow of the epidemic.
Over the past years, God has blessed and made China strong, and the Chinese churches have been connected and united together in the form of house church. But He has greater calling and mission for the Chinese body of Christ. He must elevate the height, depth, and purity of the Chinese church. Therefore, He has taken His children in China into an unprecedented sense of despair and powerlessness, and showing us how little faith we have. It is a deep brokenness in a quiet way! For us to truly learn the lesson of only see Christ and no one else, in order to prepare us to enter a new level.
Now, we are entering this historical moment, the Chinese family is face to face with the fear of death, and the bride of Christ is having a face to face encounter with the end time forces. The enemy knows its time is running out, so its ferocity is ever increasing. However, in the end the Son of God appears to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3: 8) Chinese people around the world must rise to watch and pray, not only to overcome this plague battle, but also to enter into the same destiny given to the Chinese by God since the creation of the world, to spread the gospel to all nations all the way to Jerusalem, and to welcome the returning of the glorious King.

- 2 Chronicles 14: 7 “Let us build up these towns,” he said to Judah, “and put walls around them, with towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, because we have sought the Lord our God; we sought him and he has given us rest on every side.” So they built and prospered. “
- Psalm 146: 9 “The Lord watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.”
- Romans 13: 1-2 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves .”
- Psalm 11: 5 “The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.”
【Current Event: 44 Democratic House members introduced House Resolution 5383 (HR 5383) on December 10, 2019, which aims to reform the current immigration law system. This bill is comparatively as detailed as the U.S. Constitutions, aimed to remake the immigration system with explicit purpose of ensuring that criminals are able to move and settle in U.S. permanently with impunity. They believed ‘Convictions should not lead to deportation.
This legislature sponsors open borders for all illegal immigrants and even repeating criminals (i.e. drug cartels, MS-13, etc.). It is secretly gaining momentum in congress’ House Subcommittee on ‘Immigration and Citizenship’, unannounced by the mainstream media. It’s inevitably awaiting the Democrat 2020 successful Presidency to pass.
HR5383 will impact the nation if passed. Trusting majority Americans will be shocked to see the turn to a new America. Democrats claimed ‘The criminals (felon illegal migrants) are the victims, Law Enforcement is illegitimate.’
The scope of HR5383 Immigration Rules:
- HR5383 is designed to remove the borders of the United States of America. (2 Chron. 14:7)
- Decriminalize illegal immigration. Anyone could come into the country legally because there would be no such thing as ‘illegal immigration’.
- The U.S. will lose the borders, security, protection and freedom, from any of one of these new laws in place.
- With the current assessment of 12.5 million illegal living in the country, U.S. taxpayers (local and state) will absorb 2/3 of $116 Billion each year caring for them.
- HR 5383 enables aliens that have been deported to appeal their deportation at the U.S. government’s expense. The Dept. of Homeland Security will have to pay to transport them back to the U.S. for their appeals. (Psalm. 146:9)
- U.S. law will not apply to them, although they may pose a serious threat to national security because they are protected by illegal immigration asylum laws. (Romans 13: 1-2)
Crime definition will not apply to immigrants: (Psa 11:5) Robbery, fraud, child sexual abuse, sexual offenses, forgery of government documents / passports, drug trafficking, arms trafficking, human trafficking, attack attack and so on.
This proposal will put the 2020 election, and the future security of the United States at stake. The Democrats plan to remake America as essentially illegitimate that every fabric must be destroyed, including our laws, our institutions, our freedom, our history and our values. An entire new country in which the republic is crushed and they are in charge forever.
Be Vigilant To Pray For Trump For 2020 Election
The Democratic Party will vigorously use voter fraud, ballot harvesting, media railing and every trick in the book against President Trump in the 2020 election because the 2020 election is the most important election in American history. The Democrat party will do whatever it takes to take back the White House, House of Congress, Senates, the economy and justice Department.
In 2016, President Trump won with very narrow margins in Florida, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, that caught the Democrats off guard, but thanks to constitutional Electoral College that made the difference. Democrats will try not to let this happen in 2020..
Be alert, the 2020 election is a gift from God to the United States, so we must pray for His glory to be manifested in President Trump and his family, cabinet and church to preserve America !
Pray for Israel: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
【Background: Women in Israel can easily obtain legal abortion permit. The government also provides two “free” abortion services to young female soldiers in the military. In Israel, abortion is legal if approved by the Commission for four reasons: a woman under 17 or over 40 years of age; pregnancy in an incest or illegal marriage situation (e.g., rape); fetal physical and mental disability; pregnancy may endanger the life or physical/mental health of pregnant women. Under these conditions, the Israeli government has been paying for abortion services for women under 33 since 2014.
Anti-abortion Israeli group Be’ad Chaim estimates that one out of every four pregnancy in Israel ends in abortion. Since the establishment of the nation in 1948, more than two million lives have been aborted, a number much higher than during the Holocaust. Be’ad Chaim has a hotline to help couples who are considering to have an abortion. For couples who have financial need, the agency also provides supply for newborns under one year of age. Currently they are able to save approximately 500 precious lives every year.
A total of 19,543 applications for abortions were reported in Israel in 2018, and 18,209 cases were approved. Compared with 2017, the abortion rate has decreased by 1%; if calculated from 2010, it has decreased by 18%. 】
Critical Event: Pray for The “New Coronavirus” Epidemic (3)
【Current Affair: A new coronavirus epidemic (Wuhan pneumonia) raged in China, and gradually spread to all over the world which causing panic. In Hong Kong, the government held a daily press conference to release anti-epidemic information. The media tracked and reported infection cases 24 hours a day. The medical and health care industry launched a strike to urge the Hong Kong government to respond to the “comprehensive customs clearance” appeal. Citizens waited overnight to buy masks, disinfection supplies, and supermarkets snapped up food. The phenomenon can be seen everywhere. However, there is good news. Gilead Scientific has developed a specific drug called “Redivevir” which is expected to treat new pneumonia. The name of this pharmaceutical company, “Gilead,” is a name of a place in the Bible, where healing frankincense is grown. It is said to have an immediate effect on new patients in the United States. Beijing China-Japan Hospital has already started experiments. Hope it can be quickly applied to actual treatment.In times of chaos, Pastors are encouraging believers to pray more.
At this moment, a group of believers in the Lord in Wuhan are calling out to the world, willing to stand strong in the Lord, and fight for the fate of the city and the Chinese.
- A family member in Wuhan said: “From the perspective of the world, we are the unlucky Wuhan people, but from the perspective of heaven, God chose Wuhan because He can trust us, because we can release a cry from this city. Through this experience, all of our faith level will be elevated, and we know we can rely on nothing, only God is our salvation, our fortress and our rock. “
- The pastor of the Cornerstone Church in Wuhan said, “The plague in Wuhan cannot separate us from the love of Christ. Christ is facing the plague with us in this city. The plague cannot harm Him, and it will not harm us. If we died in the plague, it is still an opportunity for us to testify Christ and to enter into His glory. “
In this crucial battle, the Chinese family living overseas also announced that they will stand with the Chinese family, and Jehovah’s army has risen among the Chinese. Let our families around the world appeal to heaven.

A female locust can lay approximately 300 eggs, and a 1-square-kilometer group of locusts can consume food that can feed 35,000 people on a daily basis. Due to floods in recent weeks in parts of South Africa and Uganda in eastern Africa, which are conducive to locust breeding, these places may be the next outbreak of locust outbreaks.
Countries in the Middle East need to guard against locust plagues : Since June last year, a large number of desert locust swarms have continued to infest India, Iran and Pakistan, and they have been breeding. Some swarms of locusts have migrated to southern Iran. The recent heavy rains have allowed them to lay eggs easily. By spring 2020, these eggs may hatch into locust swarms. Large-scale locust breeding is also occurring in Egypt, Eritrea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen, and a large number of larvae may become adult locusts in the coming months. These countries need to closely monitor the disaster situation and carry out disaster response actions in a timely manner.
Beginning of 2020-Plagues and locusts warn the world: Beginning in 2020, the world has experienced the Australian fire during the rainless season, the new Coronavirus, and the African locust plague. The situation is like the plague and locust in the ten plagues of Egypt. People should be warned to live a godly life, and repent.

Pray for First Nation of North America: Pray for Two Sioux Native Leaders
【Event: We have started from January 2019 to pray for the global indigenous peoples on a weekly basis. Since then, different First Nation leaders took the initiative to share their prayer requests with us. This week we share the prayer requests of Sioux intercessor leader from North Dakota , D Joyce Kitson, and Young Sioux leader Joe Donnell.
To Establish a “Gathering Place” in Bismarck, North Dakota for the First Peoples
D Joyce Ktson is from the HunkPapa tribe, which is one of seven councils of the Lakota tribe. Joyce has been praying for the tribe, especially the young people, and often travels on the streets, courts and prisons to resolve disputes between the indigenous people and the local government on behalf of the tribe. According to her, many young aboriginal people are often trapped by drugs, alcohol, suicide and violence, resulting in homelessness or imprisonment by the police. She has been praying for decades for God to break this vicious cycle and release tribal young people into the freedom of Christ.
Recently, she received a request from God to set up a non-profit organization and start a “gathering place” program from Bismarck, North Dakota. Here is a summary of this plan:
- Provide a facility where you can honor and gather Aboriginal people and care for them. Restore the God given honorable status of the Native Americans, to bless future generations.
- Aboriginal people are trained to make traditional and modern handmade objects such as quilts for protocol and objects for worship and daily necessities.
- Grow agricultural products and teach them how to make dry goods, herbs and oils.
- As a place where indigenous people worship God and build relationships with each other.
She looks forward to the intercessors on the global 24/7 prayer walls to pray for this plan, so that such a place can be first established in Bismarck and promoted to other Aboriginal tribes.
Joe Donnell Ministering To a Key Canadian Tribe
Joe Donnell is the First Nation apostle who has been walking with us for years. We have shared in our prayer wall about the missions led by him including the “Nine Reserves Prayer Journey” in South Dakota last June. God has been opening doors for him to connect with First Nation leaders everywhere. This month he is invited to Canada to minister to a key tribal leader from 10th to 20th. This time, he senses a great spiritual warfare and asks us to cover him in prayers.
