Latest prayer points

Japan
Jesus is true harmony in era of new emperor: With a new emperor in Japan comes a new era; the Reiwa era is variously translated, but includes reference to harmony. True harmony for a nation is found when they enter into their God given destiny. Please pray that the Japanese will seek true harmony which can only be found in Christ as a prophecy has been shared: “...a stabilising anointing of my spirit in the land of cherry blossoms, to cause the shifting ground to stand still; as my People rise to stand in their appointed places...”
New Zealand
Pray for those affected by the White Island volcano eruption: We pray for those injured following the White Island volcano eruption in December. Ask that the Lord will bring quick recovery of body and mind. May God comfort those who have lost loved ones. Pray also for the emergency services, as retrieval of the deceased from the disaster site and repatriation continues.
China
Chinese New Year brings families (and Jesus) together: Chinese New Year started on 25th January. During the celebrations millions of Chinese citizens travel to spend time with family. Christians face challenges from parents and grandparents if they are not believers, but the Christians can have opportunities to share their faith. Pray that believers will have those opportunities, that their words and deeds will honour Jesus and that many will turn to Christ. Continue to pray also for school children who are facing strong messages at school to turn them away from Christianity, even reporting their parents to the teachers if they engage in Christian activity. Pray that Jesus will be so real to these children that they can resist these pressures and continue to pray, read their Bible and share their faith.
Valuing the language of the Orninan people
Valuing the language of the Orninan people: The Orninan* people of West Asia are people who feel ignored and their language not valued. We want them to know of Christ’s love for them. We can thank God that the Orninan people love and provide for the stranger and foreigner and care for the poor and disadvantaged as he commands in his word. Pray that they will feel free to call upon the name of Jesus, that they may be known as ‘oaks of righteousness’ and that God will bring the rain their land desperately needs. Life is hard them. Pray that one day they can say ‘I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me’ (Psalm 120:1). *name changed for security reasons.
