Tuesday
In the past 30 years, the number of returnees (scholars or graduates returning from overseas) has continued to increase. Although they have obtained high education abroad, but face the difficulty of finding jobs after returning to China. Many have to settle for low-paying junior positions. We pray for returnees who have accepted Jesus abroad to trust God and to know there is much experience and opportunity every position can offer.
Wednesday
Some returnees came to know Jesus abroad but do not have a deep spiritual foundation. They experience pressure and frustration at work, plus poor self-worth which make it difficult to continue to trust God. We pray that they will have Christian mentor or pastor to help them with work and interpersonal relationship skills, and give them Biblical guidance.
Thursday
China is huge in size and the implementation of religious policy are not uniform locally. Personal relationships and other factors play important roles in the degrees of restriction. It is fair to say, Party officials at all levels are very cautious about religious actIvities of all kinds now. Any ministry with connections to foreigners whether financially or administratively are restricted now. Let us pray for people, coworkers who worked under or connected with abroad, may the Lord keep them safe, able to support themselves financially and stay.strong in their faith.
Friday
In China, the traditional ways of evangelism and pastoring methods needed to be changed because of restrictions imposed. We pray that God will open our eyes.and learn new ways of thinking and start new work, like business as mission, home schooling, small group model, peer evangelism and many more.We pray that God will raise up leaders with a new mindset and approaches, who can mentor and train new pastors and workers. Together, they can serve under difficulties and continue to serve the Lord.
Saturday
Starting from 2018, the churches in China came under different forms and degrees of restrictions, churches were forced to stop gatherings, enforcing the religious belief of all students, forcing them to deny faith and shutting down publishing of Christian content.We pray for wisdom for church leaders, ability to discern what is theological truth and what are mere church tradition, teaching their flock the same way, and deepening the training of disciples of Christ, so they will flourish even in times of great challenges.
Sunday
As churches in different provinces face varying degrees of pressure and limitations, church leaders in China must think more flexibly and adjust how they train workers for different locations and even use different methods. These changes must be implemented and adjusted accordingly.In the past, leaders in China tended to selfishly use whatever resources for their own groups, without sharing with others. In this difficult time, we pray that there is true unity and sharing of resources among leaders, doing all things for the glory of our Master and His Body.
Monday
Churches work must be done in small groups to provide learning of truth, to grow spiritually, practice their gifts and live out the likeness of Jesus Christ. To do so, pastors in China need to train a lot more small group leaders in order to disciple effectively under the current religious climate. We pray for wisdom for all the pastors and potential small group leaders, and His protection and leading through these dark days.

近三十年,海歸(海外留學回國的專業人士)人數不斷增加,他們雖在國外取得高學歷,但回國後卻面臨找工作的困境,如果不能進入自己期望的行業、只能覓得低薪的初級職位等。求主幫助在海外信主的海歸們,明白不同行業也有學習的機會,繼續相信神帶他們回國有美好的計畫。
星期三
許多留學生在海外讀書時信主,但多數信仰扎根不深,回國後面對工作挫折和自我價值的層層壓力時,很容易放棄信仰。並求主賜智慧給教會牧者或同工,以聖經真理教導海歸信徒,堅固他們在家庭、人際關係與職場等人生場境中,能靠主面對各樣的生活挑戰。
星期四
中國之大,因著人事或環境因素互相牽引著, 不同地區的宗教環境也有很大差異。新修訂的宗教法之後,事工發展的空間確實是不斷收縮,各級的官員對宗教限制更嚴苛,許多與海外有關聯的事工都受到嚴重的打擊。我們為中國境內各樣的事工禱告,求神在這混沌的環境下持續的開路。
星期五
在疫情及宗教緊縮的環境中,傳統的佈道和牧養方法遇到攔阻而不能繼續時,求主開闊同工的眼界,願意採用學習新思維、新模式,如營商宣教、在家教育、小組門訓、同儕佈道等。求主激勵預備更多擁有新思維、新模式的同工,成為新一代傳道人,一起迎難而上,繼續火熱地服事神。
星期六
近兩年中國教會面對不同形式及程度的規限,包括:教會被迫停止聚會、嚴查學生信教情況、迫簽不信教承諾書、嚴控基督教出版等。求主眷顧教會領袖,給他們智慧,明辨如何回應在神學教義、禮儀教導等各方面,把聖經真理不偏不倚地教導信徒,深化門徒訓練,與他們一起建立更穩固的聖經基礎,迎向面前的挑戰。
星期日
當不同地區的教會接連面對不同程度的衝擊時,教會領袖需要思考如何靈活調節信徒培育的模式。一直集中在教會的各種培訓班,需要作好化整為零的準備。過去,不同團隊的領袖們不會輕易分享他們的資源,也不會主動地支援其他系統的教會。求主賜給我們有合一的靈,願意分享,彼此幚補,一切都是為了祂自己的榮耀,凡事都是為了祂的身體而做。
星期一
教會需要培育更多小組組長,透過小組進行門徒培訓。求主保守帶領教會,在宗教環境處於風雨飄搖的時刻,使用牧者建立更多信徒領袖,即或沒有了教會建築物的蔭庇,信徒在小組中仍能繼續學習真理、追求成長,操練他們屬靈的恩賜,活出基督的樣式。求主賜給牧者們有智慧,能訓練那些帶領小組的人選。
