Be för de kristna i Kina

Idag börjar OS i Kina och de kristna i Kina får möta en ökad förföljelse från myndigheterna. Den här uppmaningen till förbön kom igår kväll från den kristna människorättsorganisationen CSW (Christian Solidarity Worldwide). Låt oss ta tid och be för de kristna i Kina de närmaste dagarna.

Dear Friends,

In the run-up to the Beijing Olympics, Christians in China have faced increased persecution in spite of promises made by the Chinese government to address the human rights situation.

In accordance with requests from the Chinese Church, CSW is calling for churches to unite together in prayer this weekend for the persecuted Church in China.
Tomorrow, Friday 8 August, marks the start of the Olympic Games in Beijing. Please join with CSW as we lift up our brothers and sisters in China in prayer. CSW will be hosting a Prayer Evening in London for those who live in the area and are able to attend.

China Prayer Evening:
Friday 8 August 2008, 7-9.30pm
The Emmanuel Centre
9 – 23 Marsham Street
Nearest tubes; Westminster, Victoria, St James’s Park

Alternatively, please consider mobilising prayer in your own church by holding a special time of prayer on 8 August. CSW has put together a Leader’s Guide, Prayer Guide and PowerPoint presentation to facilitate such prayer times. These resources and others can be found at

CSW is also calling for all churches to spend a short time praying for China in their Sunday services.

Please join us in prayer this weekend to show your solidarity with the Chinese Church. Please also continue to pray for China during, and indeed after, the Olympic Games. CSW’s Prayer Diary can be found online here to aid you in your prayers.

Yours in Christ

CSW Campaigns Team
