On November 7th, the leaders of China and Taiwan met for the first time since 1949. Relations between the two have long been fraught and complicated, due not only to their political history, but also to shifting geopolitical realities. The ongoing significance of the meeting is not clear, but its symbolic meaning is substantial. Pray this week for China and Taiwan’s leadership.
How to pray:
- Pray for China and Taiwan’s leaders to be wise and careful. Pray for humility and grace on both sides. Pray against corruption and power mongering.
- Pray for Christians to be present in both political administrations. Pray for God to place his sons and daughters in situations where they can advocate for righteousness and justice.
- Pray for peace between China and Taiwan.
- Pray for the Chinese and Taiwanese church to exemplify harmony, healing, and mutual-encouragement. Pray for both churches to seek the public good, but to keep their eyes focused on the cross.
