Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand when I awake, I am still with you.

【PRAYER】

  • Identification Repentance for the global abortion-related people and things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ:
    • For Sins of for Roe v. Wade: Father God, forgive us for allowing abortion to be legalized in the case of Roe v. Wade, which began the trend of abortion, not only in the United States but also in countries over the world, leading  people into more indulgence in lust and ignoring the value of life.  In the past 40 years, more than 60 million babies have been killed in the United States alone.  Have mercy on us for the sins of shedding innocent blood. We confess and repent of our sins. Please intervene and overturn Roe v. Wade, restore the recognition of life that begins at the moment of conception, respect life , abolish law for abortion and release a righteous sound for the fetus  to defend precious life.
    • For the Planned Parenthood: Heavenly Father, forgive us for being deceived and tempted and falling into the wrong thinking of eugenics, we not only kill the lives of the fetus, but also profit from selling their body parts and organs. May Your mercy and the grace of repentance come to those who assist or perform abortion and all those who support this organization, so that they will have a chance to repent in time and turn from their wicked way. Cleanse them with the precious blood of Jesus, awaken their souls and save them.  Help them see the paradox of  advocating that women’s right is above the right to life of the baby, and totally demolish and shut down Planned Parenthood.
    • For the United Nations for promoting abortion: Heavenly Father, forgive the United Nations for not fulfilling the purpose  of maintaining international peace and security and to promote the progress of human rights, and yet has established “International day of safe abortion” to encourage and enforce the promotion of abortion in member nations. Please release a righteous voice from the United Nations, and raise up UN member nations that fear God, respect life.   Let the “International day of safe abortion” be cancelled and all strategies for abortion be reversed  in the United Nations.
    • For “one-child policy” and patriarch concept: Heavenly Father, Forgive us for the past 40 years in China, Asia, the Middle East, Southeastern Europe and African countries, killing the lives of hundreds of millions of innocent fetuses and female babies because of the one-child policy and the concept of patriarch. We plead the blood of Jesus over them. May God forgive and release hearts that respect and cherish life.  Align the state judicial personnel with Your heart and establish godly laws to protect innocent lives.
    • For the manufacturer of abortion drugs and abortion instruments and medical staff participating in abortion: Heavenly Father, forgive us for our ignorance and being mislead by science and wrong education, not realizing that the work we are involved in is murdering innocent babies. Reveal to us with the light of Your truth, awaken our conscience. Bring us into repentance and turn from our wicked ways and speak up for these unborn babies.
    • For sins of church being silent and even agreement on abortion: Heavenly Father, forgive the church for remaining silent on abortion issues, even agreeing to abortion, and compromising with the world. We pray for more churches to stand in the gap, to pray for the unborn baby, and help release a voice of righteousness.  Please have mercy on the body of Christ, soften their hardened hearts, ignite their heart with compassion to identify and to feel the pain of the fetus being torn from the mother’s womb. May You give them the grace to repent, unite churches from different denominations, to stand together with one heart and one mind, along with the ministries that advocate respect for life, to rescue innocent fetus, to proclaim biblical meaning of life, and to turn the entire nation back to the heart of God. (Psalm 139:13-18)
  • Pray for adopting families: Father God, please find suitable and godly adopting families for the babies who need to be adopted and provide them with a healthy environment to grow up in love and truth, and to live out the calling and destiny of God.
  • Pray for baby born with disabilities: Heavenly Father, we pray that You will change social opinions influenced by “eugenics” thinking baby born with disabilities is less valuable, so they can abort them. We declare that each person is fearfully and wonderfully made. Every life is precious. Thank You for enlightening the society, family and organizations to love and care for them. We pray that You will continue to help the world to see these babies through Your eyes, to accept them wholeheartedly, encourage them with love, help them to find employment and become self-reliant, so they too can contribute to the society and live a brilliant life with dignity and glorify God who created them.
  • Prayers of Thanksgiving: Gracious and merciful Father God, we thank You for “March for Life” held in Washington DC and major cities in the United States on January 18, attracting more than 10 millions of people including many young people in the rally.  We thank You very much, Wonderful Father, for many babies who survived from attempted abortion, and those who  were abandoned at birth but survived and lived to glorify You.
  • National day of Mourning and Repentance: Heavenly Father, on February 23,  the United States will hold a national day of mourning and repentance for the tens of millions of baby aborted.  They pledge to wear black, not to shop, close their business, repent for abortion to seek for Father’s mercy and forgiveness, to pray and worship God. May You hear us, cease Your rage and forgive us and release  the waves of global repentance with “domino effect”  and awaken the souls and spirits to turn our heart towards You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray For Higher Education 

Background: In 2011, an American Colleges and Universities studies reported 30% of college seniors strongly agreed that it was safe for them to hold unpopular opinions on campuses. Now, it is further declined from freshmen to senior years that it’s safe to hold unpopular opinions.(Prov. 17:24)

  • Proverbs 17:24: ‘Wise people keep their eyes glued on wisdom, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.’
  • Matthews 18:5-6 ‘Anyone who receives a little child like this on my behalf is receiving Me. But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in Me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.’

Freedom at Campuses is under attack

The higher education was designed as the perfect environment for learning and training for critical intelligence for the future social, political, science standing. We trusted the education institutions’ responsibilities and objectives are trustworthy.  Unfortunately, these hopeful leaders, teachers, law makers, judges, law enforcers, presidents, citizens are being molded and trained under unexpected suppression, rules and regulations, at an unchartered territory. They are lack of the sense of assurance and confidence.

The true voice has started to surface these days from those who had experienced and wanted to expose with concerns in seeking solutions from  government and authorities, fellow educators, etc. For decades, universities and colleges have been forcibly or secretly removing privileges from students. Students feared by merely holding to say nothing which viewed as unpopular opinions. They clearly saw message from their schools: ‘Expressing dissenting opinions violates political correctness, or even just criticize the administration at their peril’.

Indoctrination (Mat. 18:5-6)

Common practice for many colleges forced students to undergo ideological reeducation as part of the universities compulsory ‘Student Orientation Program’: ‘Treatment for Students’, enforced to accept highly specific university-approved views on politics, race, sexuality, sociology, moral philosophy and environmentalism. Students are required to attend one-on-one meetings with RA (Resident Assistants), where they were compelled to answer intrusive, probing and utterly unrelated personal questions. An increasing number of schools are trying to drive religious students off campuses. Some have enacted policy that forbids faith-based student groups from selecting as members and leaders of faith. As a result, Christian groups have to be de-recognized by the universities.

Double Standard and Censorship

Today, ‘Speech Codes’ are known at a majority of colleges and universities. Speech Codes are the regulations and policies that limit or ban expressions written or verbal which are protected under the First Amendment. Such codes are applied with glaring double standards against religions, conservatives, or politically incorrect speech, or speech that campus administration happened to dislike. In other words, students’ speech in writing or spoken will get them in trouble. These codes covered policies banned speech that administrators find insulting or offensive. In intolerable fashions, some schools allocated special ‘Free Speech Zone’ for speech they don’t support. Recently, students from Universities of central Arkansas were subject to disciplinary action with his speech that’s considered ‘annoying’ to another student. 62% of top colleges maintained violation of the First Amendment protection (Rights for the students). (Phil. 4:8-9)

  • Philippians 4:8-9 ‘…..one last thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from Me – everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of Peace will be with you.’

 

Censorship Consequences:

  1. Campus censorship promotes and influence to teaching students’ Rights of “”NOT TO BE OFFENDED””. This adopts world’s influence of ‘People’s Rights of Entitlement’. Once sounded off, the education institutions will follow.  Thus, brings the ending of Free Speech that deemed offensive to others’ Rights.
  2. Campus censorship forces students develop poor intellectual (unchallengeable) habits of: ‘NOT SUPPOSED TO THINK CRITICALLY’, lest they’d arrive at a conclusion of expressing thoughts and might offend someone. Further, students are forced to give up, even to ignore the timeless principle to actively debate and discuss with other intelligent people.
  3. Censorship forces students agreed fewer rights than they actually have; or they must defer to arbitrary authority. A less learned generation from elementary to today’s high school graduates who are unfamiliar in exercising their rights (First Amendment) and believed they must get permission before speaking their minds. In fact, students believed they cannot exercise free Rights, or they are posing threats to the society.

Constitutional Right, First Amendment for all People

The ‘Rights’ embodied in the First Amendment is part of the principle foundation for ALL Americans. It fosters America’s Religions, Government and Culture stability and fairness, thus secured our remarkable Prosperity. But the censorship through universities’ speech codes, political correctness is threatening the true representation of the constitution and Sovereignty.

Future Visionaries and Builders

We believed education is the entity, part of the unity of America. This unchartered territory has been hi-jacked decades ago. In result, America has evolved and shattered by moral and social depravity. It’s time to waking up government leaders, gifted educators, church, writers,  administrators, parents and gifted workers guarding the excellence of future generations.

Pray for the UN Human Rights Council to deal fairly with Israel

Current affairs: The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) will hold its 40th session in Geneva, Switzerland, from February 25 to March 22. 7 of the 79 resolutions to be reviewed is against Israel, including the Gaza border riots planned by Hamas since March 2018. Never a country has been accused of so much. 

UN Watch Executive Hillel Neuer predicts that UNHRC will at least make five resolutions against Israel. Neuer said that the United Nations intend to use the seven reports and five resolutions that is unprecedented in the 40th Human Rights Conference in March to attack Israel and make Israel a scapegoat.

The United States withdrew from UNHRC in June 2018, calling it a “politically biased sinkhole” and criticized it for disregarding other pressing human rights issues, but it was biased against Israel for a long time.

Former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said at the time that “the United Nations has not properly dealt with the serious human rights crisis in Iran, North Korea, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other regions, and has not stopped long-term and disproportionate prejudice against Israel.” (Text from Bridges for Peace / National Renaissance News)

Pray for the Life of the Baby/Fetus: Respect Life, Prohibit Abortion

Current event: According to foreign news agent, US President Trump, who has kept the promise of protecting life since he took presidential office, criticized New York state legislature for approving a horrific new law on abortion, “the Reproductive Health Act”, on January 22, 2019. To allow babies to be murdered before birth, the bill is not concern with women’s health rights.

To defend the dignity and life of every person, Trump asked Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in mother’s womb. He urged everyone to work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life, saying “All children born and unborn are made after the holy image of God.” He vowed to veto any legislation that weakens the protection of human life and ban foreign aid funds and taxpayer funding for Abortion Act.

The Roe v. Wade case passed in 1973 divided the pregnancy period into three trimesters. During the first trimester, the decision to terminate the pregnancy was solely at the discretion of the woman. During the second trimester, the state could regulate (but not outlaw) abortions in the interests of the mother’s health. After the second trimester, the fetus become viable, and the state could regulate or outlaw abortions in the interest of the potential life except when necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother. The Roe v. Wade case has made many states legal abortion states from states that criminalize abortions.  Approximately 60 million abortions were reportedly executed in the past 45 years.

Abortion has evolved from unintentionally killing to intentionally terminating the life of the fetus.  The devil makes people  indulge in the sexual desires, using feminism and sexual liberation to encourage the killing of the fetus,it not only makes people commit great crimes, but also makes people trample on the traditional concept of holy life. The United Nations has called on governments all over the world to decriminalize abortion and scheduled September 28, 2016 as International Safe Abortion Day. Trump has accused the United Nations of forcing abortion.

China’s Health Ministry has released a statistics of at least 363 million abortions under China’s One-Child Policy in the past 40 years, and around 196 million men and women since 1971 have been sterilized. Nations from Asia, Southeastern Europe, the Middle East and part Africa have also carried out abortion because of the problem of heavy patriarchal. Global abortion has been rampant and saving the life of fetus shall not delay.】

Pray for Refugees in the Middle East

【Background】

Middle East refugee problem:

The long-term turmoil in the Middle East is one of the root causes of the refugee problem. The largest number of refugees are from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In March 2011, Syria’s civil war against President Bashar al-Assad broke out, killing as many as 240,000 people, and the number of refugees fleeing Syria from the war against the “Islamic State” has exceeded 6.5 million, accounted for half of the country’s pre-war population. Turkey is the country hosting the largest number of Syrian refugees, but the highest proportion of refugees is in Lebanon. Restoring peace and stability in these countries is the fundamental way to solve the refugee problem.

Opening the Door  to Gospel 

Currently a large number of refugees are flooding into the Middle East and the surrounding countries, give the mission an opportunities to bring the Gospel there, particularly for the large number of Muslim refugees being displaced, in the past it was very difficult to enter their country to preach the gospel. But now is the time for God to open the door for the gospel to reach these unreached people and release them into the field of harvest. We know that the mandate of Chinese missions is to take the lead and take up the baton for the gospel, take the love of Jesus to these Middle Eastern countries through the Silk Road, to bring them back to the Father’s home, and together with them take the Gospel back to Jerusalem. Please refer to the relevant reports from brothers and sisters who have recently returned from the Middle East mission:

But on the eve of the start of the voting, after the Election Committee held an emergency meeting on the evening of the 15th, it decided to postpone the voting date for the next week. This decision immediately triggered criticism from the major political parties in the ruling and opposition parties.

The main candidates are the APC presidential candidate of the Nigerian ruling party, the National Progressive Party, the current President Buhari and the main opposition party People’s Democratic Party PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar. The general concenses is that Bukhari and Abu Bakar are evenly matched.

Nigeria has a population of about 190 million. It is the most populous country in Africa. Christians account for almost half of the total, but this time the two main presidential candidates are Muslims. We need to pray in urgency for this election, let the chosen candidate of God win, and be changed to a leader of God’s will, and reverse the current dangerous situation in the country, including:

  1. Safeguard People’s Security: Bringing the ” Boko Haram”, an Islamic terroristorganization that kills, persecutes and plunders innocent Christiansto justice and protects the safety of churches and Christian families.
  2. Improving the economic system: The government bears huge financial debts, and the people are chronically poor and the unemployment rate is serious, at around 23.1%. The Negeria government needs to revitalize the economy with God’s strategy, to mobilize industries and increase employment opportunities.
  3. Put an end to government corruption: For Negeria to develop into a truly democratic country, it must first resolve internal corruption. 】

Pray for the First Nations in Australia

【Historical Background: Australian Aboriginal people are the general name of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, made up of about 500-600 tribes and clans.There is a big difference between the tribes, and each community has its own unique culture, customs and language.

After the arrival of the first British immigrants, many Aboriginal people died in epidemics and armed conflicts:

When the first British ships landed with mostly convicted criminals in 1788 in what is now Sydney. Within 150 years there was estimated to be only 10% of the original population from before European arrival. This was a result of both European disease epidemics and armed conflicts.

The invasion of Australia was not only obviously biblically immoral but breaking British and International Law:

By contrast though the British occupation of Malaya and Hong Kong despite involving intimidation manipulation and a measure of deceit did in a way recognize indigenous existing governmental authorities and entered into treaties and contractual agreements. No such respect was given to Aboriginal leaders. In fact it is recorded in the ship’s log that Captain Cook ordered soldiers to shoot at Aboriginal people who were witnessing his landing on the Beach at Botany Bay (present day Sydney). Surprisingly he then claimed the whole of the East Coast for The British Crown on the basis that the continent was un-inhabited or that it was an “empty land”. In the Island State of Tasmania its Aboriginal People were deliberately exterminated until the last few who were part of a tokenistic effort to preserve the race died of disease maybe, at least in part, due to the terrible conditions in which they were housed

Defender for the Aboriginal being persecuted:

There have always been some non-indigenous Australians and migrants who worked to befriend and defend Aboriginal people. Though things have improved they were very much in the minority. White people who insisted on Aboriginal people being treated fairly were often rejected and even violently persecuted by their fellow Europeans. Sincere Christians like Church of England Missionary George Gribble were set upon by angry White people and beaten in the streets for standing for Justice or at least mercy on behalf of Aboriginal Australians.

Christian Missionary did not preach pure gospel:

many Christian missionary and Churches expected the Government to fund them. As a result missionaries dependent on government funding to survive became more agents of human government policies of “civilization” and “assimilation” instead of purely ambassadors for The Kingdom of Christ. Their dual representative role including that of the unjust colonial administration meant that their witness for Christ was compromised. Their Message that should have been of Christ’s Love and Grace and Justice was confused given their paid position of colonial governors.

High suicide rate among Australia first people:

Too many Aboriginal people feel that the quality of life they were saved for is not worth living as reflected by a suicide rate compatible only with the Native American “Indian”.An ongoing tool of Satan in the oppression of Indigenous people is ignorance and cultural misunderstanding.Many of the Aboriginal tribes were such extreme nomads that they built no permanent dwellings. As a result Aboriginal people who were systematically harvesting and managing their traditional estates were assumed to be just “passing through” from somewhere and on their way to “somewhere”. They did care where from or to as long as they went away somewhere else. Fear caused settlers who had been given or bought the land from “The Crown” to settle on and farm it would treat Aboriginal people as if it were they who were trespassing.

Perspective toward the First people has improved:

These days as Mainstream Australia is no longer generally feeling so threatened by Aboriginal people’s existence there is a broad sympathy to their cause or at least it is considered impolite to publicly appear unsympathetic. However an example of the enduring ignorance, today is the Australian National Holiday “Australia Day”. This holiday celebrates the date that the first boat-load of English Criminals and soldiers (with their lethal guns, poisons and diseases) landed on this continent to stay and begin the process of dispossession Aboriginal People of their land and much of their heritage and for most to be dispossessed of their very lives. For most indigenous Australians this day is a day of great sadness and mourning for all they have lost. Despite a growing move to change the date of Australia’s National Celebration it is loudly Conservative Christians who seem least sensitive to the pain of Aboriginal Australians surrounding the date. Some Aboriginal People have endeavoured to put some positive spin on an otherwise sombre occasion for their people calling it “Survival Day” because despite a general genocide they are still alive. Others though not ignorant of our sad history

choose to focus on the bringing of The Word of God and it’s Life Giving Gospel in the first English Bible that is known to have arrived on the continent with this first fleet. However this is an exceptionally positive view of minority even of Christians.

In the late 20th century, the initiative reconciled with the aborigines and apologized to the aborigines in 2012.

The reconciliation between non-original Australians and Australian aborigines became an important political issue in Australia in the late 20th century. In 1991, Council for the Reconciliation Aboriginal was established , in order to facilitate reconciliation. In 1998, Australia held a constitutional conference to discuss the republican model of the referendum, but the conference had only six Aboriginal representatives, so the famous royalist Aboriginal representative Navel Bona resigned and retired and read the Jagera tribe. “Sad sorrow.” The Republican model chosen by the General Assembly, together with the proposal to include a preamble to the Aboriginal and Torres Islanders in the Constitution, was put to the referendum in 1999 but failed. In 1999, Congress passed by the Australian Prime Minister John Howard to seek indigenous senator Aden Ridgeway  Opinions drafting of the “Motion of Reconciliation”, which states that the abuse of Australian Aborigines It was “the dirtiest section of our country’s history,” but Howard refused to make a formal apology. In 2001, Lianbangzhengfu dedicate Canberra the Reconciliation Place . February 13, 2008, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd Overthrowing Howard’s decision, on behalf of the Australian government , apologized to the stolen generation . In 2010, a panel appointed Lianbangzhengfu with Aboriginal leaders, legal experts and parliamentarians consisting of advice on how indigenous and Torre Island in the Federal Constitution, the people make the recognition. The recommendations made by the Panel in January 2012  included the deletion of constitutional provisions referring to race Since then, the referendum on the recognition

Australia’s policy of supporting Aboriginal people, although costly but not effective:

For the past decade or so the Australian Government policy slogan regarding Aboriginal Affairs has been ” Close the Gap”. This is referring to statistical gaps in standard of living, educational outcomes, employment, health expectations, life spans, rates of addictions and suicides and virtually every social quality of life statical indicator reflecting the tragedy that Aboriginal Australians are not equally enjoying the same general prosperity of multicultural non indigenous Australians. In fact it has been said that statistics are more consistent with a developing country in a war zone than a so called “first world ” nation at peace. Despite many billions of dollars being poured into government remedial programs in many areas little progress has been made. Much of the reported progress I feel can be put down to manipulation of figures and subtle changes in parametres of statistical data collection by government workers pressured to make a good public appearance.

Australian Christians developed a substantive relationship with Aboriginal:

Christians have been at the forefront of the “Reconciliation Movement” tackling the deep division in our society , the fear, wounding and distrust. This has ranged from secular political action and community education to focused efforts on repentance and forgiveness for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australian Christians. Many indigenous Australians particularly feel that they have been called on forgive and that Christians generally have confused an apology with real repentance. They feel that a few tokenistic ceremonies and saying sorry have not born the fruit of real repentance that would be seen by a change of relationship. Some progress has been made but their are still deep wounds in individuals and as peoples and as a nation that need healing.

Australian Aboriginal people began to rise in the field of political and sports:

Since the 1970s, Australian Aboriginal people have assumed political positions. In 1976, Sir Douglas Knicks was appointed as the 28th state governor of South Australia. The Liberal Party’s Ken Wyette became the first to be elected to the Australian House of Representatives. Aboriginal Member. In sports, Ivan Gulagon Cowley became the world’s number one tennis player in 1971 and won 14 Grand Slam titles in his athletic career. Indigenous sprinter Cathy Freeman ignited the flame at the opening ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics and won the 400-meter sprint in the next race.
