PRAYER REQUEST: China & Lausanne

October 11, 2010

As of October 11, 2010 … the Shouwang Church’s Open Statement on Lausanne …

Participants from China invited to the Lausanne World Congress are currently under much pressure and have been stopped.  We believe Lausanne has the Lord’s leading and His providential good will as it will move the church in China to become one and grow in maturity.  Through Lausanne, God will bring the church in China to “rise up and shine!” becoming “salt and light” to bless China.

As a result, Shouwang church is grateful for our 12 brothers and sisters (8 participants and 4 volunteers) who are privileged to be a part of Lausanne.  We beseech the Lord to lead them through this journey peacefully and successfully.

We pray for China’s participants to have a heart of “resolution, openness and togetherness” in attending Lausanne, and for the churches that have been under attack for the pressure to be released.

We especially pray for our brothers and sisters who have been detained and under arrest (especially Inner Mongolia brother Liu Jin Tao who was detained Oct 9th for 15 days).  We ask God for freedom in spirit and in body as we trust the Spirit of the Lord while being a testimony of His life and truth.  We also pray for the church and their ministry co-workers that they would be one in the Lord.

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you, his glory appears over you.” Isaiah 60:1-3
