Tuesday
​While all young people in China feel the intense social and family pressure to succeed, the youth in the "one-child generation" are expected to support their aging parents and grandparents. They feel they will not be able to meet the expectation of finding a high-paying job and buying an apartment. ​The hope of many Christian parents is that their children turn to God. We pray their prayers are answered. May the​ Lord chasten the prodigal children and return them to His fold like the lost sheep.
Wednesday
A new term in China--"empty nest youth" refers to those in their twenties and thirties who work away from home, renting and living alone in big cities. They typically stay mostly in their homes, lack friendship, and remain unmarried. Many of them embrace the "sang culture" and feel that nothing they do really makes a difference.​ We pray for wisdom and strategies so young believers will get involved in serving in a church. May the Lord mobilize mature believers to care for, guide, ​and encourage them to serve humbly.
Thursday
China has roughly 380 million millennials. whose ages are 18 to 35. They have opportunities that earlier generations would have found unimaginable, but they also have expectations that are becoming more difficult to meet. A church with many young people is truly God's blessing. We pray that churches will try to reach out to young people, intentionally welcoming them and make them feel comfortable to invite their friends.
Friday
In China, admission to an elementary school is tied to houkou, the residency permit. Those who hold a hukou and whose parents own an apartment in the school district are always put first, followed by those who hold a houkou but have no apartment in the district. All Chinese parents would do everything to provide the best education for the children. We pray that parents will never forget that the most important education is to teach children to know, to love and to serve the Lord.
Saturday
In China, the hukou​ ​system prevents millions of migrant workers from the countryside from enrolling their children in the public schools in the cities where they work or live. Another problem is that houses within the district of a desirable school will cost much more than elsewhere.​ We pray that parents will teach their children Bible stories at home and pray with them as well as living out examples of service and helping their children to realize that it is a blessing to serve and their life goal is to serve God.
Sunday
The latest plans from Guangzhou and Beijing require ¯qualified renters¯ to enjoy the same rights as homeowners and restrict the number of domestic migrants who will be given residence permits. But this does not mean renters will be given the same priority as house owners. We pray that Christian parents will not only pray for academic success for their children but will include spiritual growth and teach them to honor God above all other pursuits from the time they are very young.​
Monday
In China, hundreds of millions of people still live in rural areas with few prospects for jobs. Competition to get into universities is fierce, and competition for good jobs after college can be fiercer. The Lord has mercy on us, so we learn to truly love one another, because He first loved us and so others will know Him by our love. We pray the Lord will correct the way we judge a person by their profession and the work they do.


星期二
過去獨生子女政策,導致父母和祖父母在唯一的孩子身上加了太多期望。孩子理所當然要到大城市謀職,找到高薪的工作、買房,但要做到這些越來越難了。許多信徒父母,望兒女繼續上教會,但是孩子卻不願意。求主安慰這些父母,叫他們不放棄為孩子守望,祈求主的管教,引領浪子回頭。
星期三
「空巢青年」大都是90後,獨自一人在外工作,通常是在大城市租房子住,父母不在身邊,單身,缺乏社交。他們最大的特點就是「宅」,不單單是婚戀問題,還包括友誼的缺失。願主賜教會有智慧與策略,好叫年輕信徒在教會中有更多的參與。也有成熟的長輩投入,帶領照顧他們,幫助他們在教會裡學習謙卑服事,在服事中靈命日漸成長。
星期四
中國有3.8億十八至三十五歲年輕人,他們擁有的就業機會是前所未有的,但是他們許多卻無法達到父母親的期望。這一代人要面對更激烈的競爭。教會有年輕人是神的恩典。求主幫助教會,嘗試更多接觸年輕人,用心使他們感受到教會的溫暖,讓更多的年輕人,也能夠邀請他們的朋友參加聚會。
星期五
在中國,小學的入學與戶口(即居住許可證)息息相關。 招生時,在學區有房子的有優先權,接著是有戶口或是租房子的,就是沒有房子的。求主幫助家長在給孩子最好教育之餘,也教導他們敬畏神是智慧的開端,神看重我們本人過於我們的成就。
星期六
戶口制度阻止了數百萬農民工報讀他們工作和生活的城市公立學校。此外,擁有好學校的學區,房價必定更高。求主賜信徒父母,在家裡給孩子聖經教導,常常跟孩子們一起禱告,並且有服事的榜樣,願孩子一生能照神所喜悅的,用虔誠、敬畏的心事奉神。
星期日
廣州和北京新政落實「租售同權」,要求「合格租房者」享有與房主相同的權利,並限制獲得居留許可的國內移民人數。但是,這並不意味著租房者將獲得與房主一樣的優先權。家長都是為孩子擔憂,求主幫助信徒家長,不單重視孩子的學業成績,更為子女從小認識神,願意把神放在首位而著急,願信徒的第二代都知道,事奉神是蒙福的。
星期一
中國數以億計的人口現今仍然生活在農村地區,幾乎沒有工作機會。年輕人要考入好的大學,競爭非常激烈;畢業後要找份好工更是要過關斬將,難上加難。求主憐憫我們,學習彼此相愛,因為神先愛我們,讓人認出我們就是基督的門徒。也求主修正神兒女的價值觀,不輕看教會中那些世人眼裡沒有所謂好工作或職業的弟兄姐妹。
