Prayer is one of the most important ways we can serve the church in China. When we pray for them, we are not just speaking words: we are interceding for them before the throne of the king himself.
Since 2017, we have been raising up a prayer movement of people who are willing to pray for China daily and weekly. As persecution and pressure increases, would you join us in praying for the church in China?

These days, it feels like the only certainty in China is uncertainty.
After three years of strict lockdowns and the tightening of national leadership, 2022 ended in upheaval, with many people dying from surging Covid cases and many others fleeing the country. Now, the borders of China are opening again, but nothing feels settled. For Chinese house churches, persecution and harassment continues.
When we asked two prominent Chinese Christian leaders how we should pray for the church in China this year, they pointed to Hebrews 3:6: “But Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.”
That is why, in 2023, the theme of our prayer movement is Hold Fast. Even in the midst of so much uncertainty, our longing is that the church in China would not be shaken from their firm foundation. Each month, we will be praying for a specific area in which we long for them to hold fast. Will you join us in praying for the church in China to hold fast in 2023?
