As we pray for the country’s many needs, we also take time to remember the many ways China glorifies its creator. This week take time to praise God for the wonders of Chinese food – and perhaps go one step further and learn how to cook one of its most famous dishes! Below you can find a link for learning how to cook Kungpao Chicken (宫保鸡丁, gōngbǎo jīdīng).
How to pray:
- Praise God for China’s long culinary history. Praise him for its inventiveness and resilience through China’s various good and bad times. Praise God for Chinese creativity and curiosity when it comes to eating a wide assortment of interesting foods.
- Praise God for Chinese hospitality and the ways in which food can bring people together. Praise him for our opportunities to try authentic Chinese food in the Western world and for the people who have brought their cuisine with them.
- Pray for Chinese chefs and restaurant workers to be reached with the gospel. Pray for those who are hungry to be fed. Ask God to continue to bless China’s food production. Pray for protection against food-born diseases and contaminated food products.
