Tuesday
In China, atheism is still taught in the schools. Although many Chinese are not real materialists, they hold certain preconceived notions that God does not exist and man evolved from apes. We pray that Christian parents will persist in teaching their children to know God and then never stop praying for their spiritual life and encouraging them to defend their faith and trust in God to be faithful. We also pray that they will be good spiritual examples for their children.
Wednesday
Some people in China believe religion is the antithesis of rationality and science, and is synonymous with ignorance and childishness. They think Christianity is incompatible with science and out of step with modern civilization. The majority of believers in China are not intellectuals. We praise God for urban churches started to have many members who have high education now. We pray for the spirit of unity for churches, so they will not despise believers who are poor, less educated and the lowly of the society.
Thursday
Some Christians in China believe that in order to achieve further church growth, it is necessary to encourage believers to gain scientific and cultural knowledge. They believe that this will help to eliminate the common notion that Christianity is opposed to science. We pray that believers will boldly proclaim God's Word and not be ashamed of it. May we all be rewarded in being able to witness how the Holy Spirit softens hearts of stone and makes good soil for the gospel.
Friday
The greatest challenge Christian parents in China face is that all children are indoctrinated with the propaganda and glorification of the Communist Party. All the students are strongly encouraged to join and pledge allegiance to the Little and Youth Leagues (a branch of the Party). We pray for the divine protection of all the youth from Christian families, so they can be like Daniel and his friends, able to preserve their faith, and not be ashamed of Jesus Christ, in the atheistic environment and among their friends.
Saturday
Obviously, China is a unique country in that atheism is taught as a default subject by the government in the school curriculum. Hence, generations of children assume that atheism is the "truth". We pray for wisdom and perseverance for Christian parents enabling them to teach their children that God is real and faithful. We also pray that Christian parents will be great examples of faith and dedication to God even when their children become teenagers.
Sunday
Christians in China encounter a constant anti-religion hostility. In the classrooms, teachers are always attacking different aspects of religions and feeding students all kind of negative information about them. The loss of children of believers from churches is a huge problem in the churches of China. We pray for spiritual leaders to have vision and use strategies to retain the young ones from drifting away from the faith. May the Lord help all Christian parents to teach their children to know God as well as be a living example of the faith themselves.
Monday
One challenge churches in China face is the prevailing anti-religion attitude. Although the government no longer suppress religions, Christianity is still singled out as anti-scientific. We praise God for many intellectuals who have become believers in the past two decades. We pray that the Spirit of God continues to soften hearts of many who still see Christianity as Western and anti-science.


星期二
中國教會面對的挑戰之一是反宗教的偏見。很多百姓在無神論教育的薰陶下成長,儘管並非徹底的唯物主義,但都堅持沒有神,人類源於古猿進化。我們要為信徒家長禱告,求主幫助他們有智慧和信心能堅持教導孩子從小認識神,不停為孩子的靈命祈求,並以身作則活出真實的信仰見證,與孩子一同經歷神的信實和慈愛。
星期三
很多中國人覺得信仰跟科學格格不入,與現代文明脫節,甚至是無稽之談。雖然信徒大多數沒接受過高等教育,不過在城市裡已有不少知識份子接受了福音,我們為此感恩。求主賜教會智慧,在肢體中不分社會地位高低、貧富,教育程度不同,都有合一的靈:「向甚麼樣的人,我就作甚麼樣的人。無論如何,總要救些人所行的都是為福音的緣故,為要與人同得這福音的好處。」(林前9:22-23)
星期四
有些人認為,教會應鼓勵廣大信徒多學習科學和文化知識,以消除民眾認為「宗教與科學是對立」的偏見。我們為中國信徒禱告,求主使他們大有膽量廣傳福音,不以神福音為恥。有信心見證聖靈將石心化柔、蘊育成福音沃土的奇跡。「我們爭戰的兵器本不是屬血氣的,乃是在神面前有能力,可以攻破堅固的營壘,將各樣的計謀,各樣攔阻人認識神的那些自高之事,一概攻破了,又將人所有的心意奪回,使他都順服基督。」林後10:4-5
星期五
基督徒家長面對最大的挑戰,就是自孩子進入學校,需要接受愛國教育、無神論,鼓勵孩子宣誓加入少年先鋒隊和共青團。 求主保守青少年信徒能如同但以理和他的朋友們一樣,在教導無神論的學校、朋友和社交圈裡,能持守信仰,不卑不亢,勇敢為主作見證。
星期六
現今中國教育的課程,或許是世界上唯一最徹底的無神論, 導致幾代的孩子認為無神論即是真理。求主賜給信徒家長智慧和耐心,願意按著聖經的原則盡心培育子女,幫助他們建立穩固的信仰根基,以致在青春期成長的衝擊來到時不易被搖動。我們更為信徒家長以身教和信心的生活見證成為子女靈命承傳的楷模。
星期日
在學校課堂裡,教師們極力攻擊信仰,給學生傳遞宗教種種負面的知識。信徒子女普遍的信仰流失,是中國教會的一大問題。我們切切為中國信仰的屬靈承傳來禱告,求主賜給教會領袖異象和眼光來挽回、幫助父母親認真教導子女認識神和真理,也成為他們以信心跟從神的好榜樣。
星期一
雖然中國政府不再高壓反對信仰,但是基督教卻是唯一被戴上反科學罪名的信仰,好些人仍然對基督教存著十足的敵意。我們為中國教會過去二十年來,添加了許多知識份子信徒而感恩,求聖善的靈繼續軟化人心,能更全面深入地明瞭福音真理,不再將基督教簡略地當作洋教或是反科學而拒絕,甚至敵視。
