伊拉克—特別為在北庫德斯坦區域的基督徒教會的合一禱告。讚美神,儘管面對該國嚴苛的環境,祂的保護仍臨到當地服事的基督徒。該國最近正進行選舉。當他們經歷各種形形色色的政府官員的改變時,為他們禱告。禱告真正的宗教自由可以使這片土地興旺。

Pray for this nation as it experiences a change in various government officials. Pray for true religious freedom to flourish in this land.

斯里蘭卡—神有一個重要的運行發生在這個國家。2008年9月,眾教派及主流教會有一個史無前例的聚集;而在11月中所有的牧師及會眾在斯里蘭卡南部舉行的一個為期21天的禁食來傾聽神的聲音。禱告教會的合一能持續,這個國家能仰望這位萬王之王及萬主之主在一切的事上引導他們。

Sri Lanka – There is a major move of God taking place in this nation. An unprecedented gathering of all denominations and mainline churches was held September, 2008, and all pastors and their congregations in Southern Sri Lanka held a 21-day fast to hear from God in mid November. Pray that the unification of the Church will continue, and that this nation will look to the King of kings and the LORD of lords for direction in everything.

中國—中國救援組織得知自去年九月底到十一月初,大量的警力被派遣去突襲北京的家教會聚會,以及靠近杭州大專院校附近的區域。超過四百名的基督教大學學生遭到逮捕及審問。禱告世界和教會願意為這些違反人權的事件,以及遭逼迫的基督徒發聲。禱告家教會的成員有智慧知道如何及在何處聚集。禱告他們發現創意的方式--「神的點子」--在充滿敵意的環境中能安全的分享福音。(詩112:6-8)為在這片土地上的教會迅速增長感謝主。

葉門─因著有某西方國家的幫助,葉門在對抗蓋達組織上宣稱獲得一場難得的勝利,但分析家及外交家警告,那些好戰份子仍會對那些蓋達組織網絡敵擋西方國家的聖戰具同情心,並對擁有許多武力的國家構成威脅。禱告葉門對於蓋達組織相關的伊斯蘭好戰份子,以及當地極端主義份子的態度能積極堅定的貶損他們。禱告政府有資源阻止恐怖主義的財力發展。葉門是全球最少接觸福音的國家之一。禱告福音能對這片土地的每個百姓傳講,他們能接受基督為救主及生命的主。

Yemen – Yemen appears to have claimed a rare victory against Al Qaeda with help from a country in the West, but analysts and diplomats warn that militants still pose a threat in a country where arms are plentiful and sympathy for the Al Qaeda network’s holy war against the West runs high. Pray for Yemen to be more consistent and proactive in putting down Al Qaeda-linked Islamic militants and local extremists. Pray for the government to have the resources to prevent terrorism financing. Yemen is one of the least evangelized countries in the world. Pray that the Gospel be preached to everyone in this land, and that they will accept Christ as Savior and Lord.

越南─根據地區性的教會領袖表示,遠在越南北部的北江省當局,違反越南的新宗教法規,正對老撾人這些少數族群中的新信徒施壓,企圖否認他們的信仰,重新建立他們祖先的祭壇。禱告越南地下教會的成員有智慧並知道如何及在何處聚會。禱告他們找到創新的方式——「屬神的點子」——安全地在具有敵意的環境中分享信仰。為真正的宗教自由禱告。(詩112:6-8)

Vietnam – In violation of Vietnam’s new religion policy, authorities in Lao Cai Province in Vietnam’s far north are pressuring new Christians among the Hmong minority to deny their faith, and to re-establish ancestral altars, according to area Church leaders. Pray that members of the Vietnamese underground Church have wisdom to know how and where to meet. Pray that they find creative ways—“God ideas”—to safely share their faith in a hostile environment.

汶萊─禱告汶萊政府持續支持對抗恐怖主義。此外,目前除了官方所認可的伊斯蘭信仰之外,其他信仰改變不被允許。據報告顯示,目前沒有基督教的宣教士在這國家工作。禱告汶萊有真正的宗教自由。禱告每個人都能來到神面前,認識祂是生命的主及救主。(約3:16)

Brunei – Pray for the Brunei government to continue its support to fight against terrorism. Proselytizing by faiths other than the officially sanctioned branch of Islam is not permitted. There are no missionaries reported working in this country. Pray for true religious freedom in Brunei. Pray for everyone to come to the Lord, and to know Him as their personal Lord and Savior. (John 3:16)

黎巴嫩─禱告像傀儡般操縱蓋達及法塔伊斯蘭組織的黑暗權勢被推翻,人們得釋放可以自由敬拜神。禱告他們的領袖有改信基督的經歷(提前2:1-4)。禱告當信徒與人分享福音的好消息時能受到保護。

Qatar – Although telling Muslims about Jesus is strictly forbidden, Christians from other countries are allowed to meet together to worship. Pray for Muslims to encounter Jesus in their dreams. Pray that they would grow as disciples in Christ, and that revival will spread in this land with multiple thousands of new Believers would be added to the Kingdom of God in the next 30 days.

土庫曼─新教徒告訴「論壇18」,雖然壓力再次增加,整年來說,較輕的困擾仍持續不斷。新教徒在靠近黎巴波省的土克曼巴德東北部城鎮的莎德拉巴區域,去年11月再度遭到來自當地伊斯蘭宗教領袖的壓力。「論壇18」說,對當地新教徒的壓力增加,是從一位來自艾許蓋巴德的資深宗教事務官員拜訪當地之後開始。禱告該國有真正的宗教自由。為伊斯蘭宗教領袖及其他政治及屬靈領袖的得救禱告。為教會有超乎想像的增長及新信徒按著基督的方式接受門訓禱告。

Turkmenistan – Protestants have told Forum 18 that lower level harassment continued through the year, though pressure is increasing again. Protestants in Serdarabad district near the northeastern town of Turkmenabad (formerly Charjew) in Lebap region have again come under pressure from local imams in November. Forum 18 said the pressure on local Protestants increased after a senior religious affairs official visited the region from Ashgabad. Pray for true freedom of religion in Turkmenistan. Pray for the salvation of the imams and other political and spiritual leaders. Pray for incredible growth of the Church and for new converts to be discipled in the ways of Christ.
