北緯10/40之窗禱告焦點

2009年6月14日 - 6月20日

Weekly Prayer Points- June 14 - June 20, 2009

 

►2009年6月14日(日)

June 14

阿爾巴尼亞—很不幸地,在現代這個世代,阿爾巴尼亞這個國家已經與「組織型犯罪」畫上等號。阿爾巴尼亞的黑手黨被認為捲入全球性的仿冒、毒品及軍火非法交易的活動中。禱告耶穌基督的大能使這些制度下的成員得著釋放。禱告神的國度在阿爾巴尼亞被堅立,並摧毀貪婪、犯罪及不法的靈。禱告數世紀以來的不法活動傳統能終止。禱告再接下來的30天,復興能在這片土地上產生,有許多新信徒接受基督。

Albania- Unfortunately, in modern times, Albania has become synonymous with organized crime. The Albanian Mafia is believed to be involved in global counterfeiting, as well as drug and arms trafficking operations. An outgrowth of the culture’s clan system (called Fis), the mafia has produced bloody “family” wars and is now one of the chief instruments in the worldwide black market. Pray for members of this system to be set free by the power of Jesus Christ. Pray for the spirits of greed, crime, and lawlessness to be defeated by the firm establishment of the Kingdom of God in Albania. Pray for an end to a centuries-long tradition of illicit activities. Pray for revival to break out in this land with multiple thousands of new Believers accepting Christ in the next thirty days.

摩洛哥—2009年3月,有五名宣教士在這個封閉的伊斯蘭教國家遭驅逐出境,且這五名被流放在外的婦女被控以企圖使穆斯林「改變信仰」罪名起訴。雖然據稱可以包容其他宗教,但伊斯蘭政府拒絕允許基督徒聚在一起宣教或敬拜。禱告神打開屬靈的天空,勝過這些黑暗權勢,撕裂遜尼派伊斯蘭沒有能力的帷幕,發出耶穌基督釋放的大光。禱告該國祕密的信徒及被驅逐者能持續向主忠心,並主會賜給他們屬神的策略方式來分享福音。

Morocco- Five missionaries were expelled from this closed, Islamic nation in March 2009. All were expatriate women and were accused of trying to “convert” Muslims. Though supposedly tolerant of other religions, the Islamic government refuses to allow Christians to evangelize or meet together for worship. Pray for God to open the heavens over this stronghold of darkness, rending the curtain of Sunni Islam powerless, and shining forth the liberating Light of Jesus Christ. Pray for the nation’s secret Believers and expatriates to remain faithful to the Lord, and that He will give them Divine strategic ways to share the Gospel.

伊拉克—即便為了控制這個國家的激烈對抗仍在進行中,但對於心及心思意念的屬靈爭戰更加劇烈。報告指出不斷加增的迫害及一個加速的收割,顯明伊拉克是一個真實戰爭地帶的提醒。為那些失喪及未得之民被主吸引及信徒能勇敢地宣告神國度來禱告。禱告神持續使門戶敞開,直到所有的人都受到福音的影響為止。

Iraq- Even as the physical struggle for control of this country continues to be waged, the spiritual struggle for control of hearts and minds grows more intense. Reports of both increased persecution and an accelerating harvest are reminders that Iraq is truly a war zone. Pray for the lost and unreached to be drawn to the Lord and for Believers to boldly proclaim the Kingdom. Pray that God will keep this door open until the entire population has been impacted by the Good News.

斯里蘭卡—數千名百姓被困在這個島國的北部頂端,而那裡正是泰米爾之虎反抗軍遭到政府軍隊圍困的地方。當地政府已經拒絕來自聯合國及其他國家要使該國無辜百姓可以從戰區逃出來的努力。為那些在這場暴力衝突中被擄百姓的安全禱告。禱告基督教人道組織可以用清潔的水、藥品及食物來供應這些百姓。禱告這些行動被視為是神愛的顯明,使斯里蘭卡百姓永遠將他們的信心放在耶穌基督裡。

Sri Lanka-Thousands of civilians are trapped in the northern tip of this island nation where Tamil Tiger rebels have been cornered by government troops. The government has rejected efforts by the United Nations and others to broker a cease-fire to allow these innocent citizens to escape from the war zone. Pray for the safety of those who have been caught in this violent conflict. Pray for Christian humanitarian organizations to reach them with clean water, medicine, and food. Pray for these actions to be seen as a demonstration of God’s love and for many Sri Lankans to permanently place their faith in Jesus Christ.

以色列—首相納坦雅弗在2009年當選,並不同意一個巴勒斯坦國家的形成,在最近發出一項要求希望在從事一個未來談判之前,巴勒斯坦百姓能正視以色列是一個猶太人的國家。而巴勒斯坦當局回應納坦雅弗對於雙方和平並無興趣。禱告和平的君王為這個飽受戰爭摧殘的區域帶來永遠的平安。禱告神實現他對以色列的計畫,使用各方衝突的領袖,成為在猶太族群及阿拉伯族群間加速實現祂國度在地如在天的手段。

Israel- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, elected in 2009, has not agreed to the formation of a Palestinian state and recently issued a demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state before engaging in further talks. The Palestinian Authority responded by stating that Netanyahu was not interested in peace. Pray for the Prince of Peace to bring His Everlasting Peace to this war-torn region. Pray for God to fulfill His plan for Israel and use the leaders on all sides of the conflict as instruments for the advance of His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven among Jews and Arabs.

塔吉克—該國現在被視為是中亞最貧窮的國家,仍然持續受苦於內戰那年所帶來的後續影響。許多居民無法供應家人吃喝及穿著的需要。有些母親甚至憑藉販賣他們非常年幼的孩子,一個值100美金的方式來維生。禱告神介入這個仍在持續中的長期性危機。禱告基督教人道組織的救援能接觸到這些需要的人,並將永生的必要性告訴他們—就是耶穌基督的福音。禱告現在的苦難被神使用來轉移注意力到神獨生子耶穌基督的身上,使他們接受祂成為生命的主及救主。

Tajikistan- Now deemed the poorest nation in Central Asia, Tajikistan continues to suffer the aftereffects of years of civil war. Many residents are unable to feed and clothe their families. Some mothers have resorted to selling their babies for as little as $l00 in order to survive. Pray for God to intervene in this on-going, long-term crisis. Pray for the aid from Christian and humanitarian organizations to reach the people who are in need, along with that which is necessary for eternal life – the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray for the present hardship to be used by God to turn attention toward His Son, Jesus Christ, and that all would accept Him as Lord and Savior.

中國—這是觀察家所謂的「一個不確定的政治及社會趨勢,」中國當局正以對抗基督徒來抗拒改變。最近幾個月來,他們欲積極禁止或逮捕所有在政府所允許教會之制度外敬拜的信徒,這樣的企圖不斷升高。事實的真相是在這一波的行動中,有些家教會的領袖因此而入獄。然而基督徒的人數卻持續有爆炸性地成長。感謝主因祂奇妙大能及能力將劇烈的迫害轉變成點燃復興的火。禱告中國的信徒分享在基督裡的苦難時是充滿喜樂的,並且他們信仰的見證使中國當局悔悟過來。禱告那些迫害者能速速面對公義的處置,使信徒們能在這片土地上自由的敬拜神。禱告迫害者能有耶穌基督得救的智慧。

China- In what observers are calling “an uncertain political and social climate,” Chinese authorities are fighting change by waging war against Christians. In recent months they have increased their already zealous attempts to discourage or arrest all Believers worshipping outside of the state-approved church system. Scores of house church leaders have been imprisoned in this campaign. Yet the number of Christians continues to grow explosively. Thank God for His amazing power and ability to transform even intense persecution into fuel for the fires of revival. Pray for Chinese Believers to rejoice as they share in the sufferings of Christ and for their faithful testimony to convict the Chinese authorities. Pray the persecutors will be brought to justice quickly, and that Believers will be able to freely worship God in this land. Pray the persecutors will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

吉布地—位在亞丁灣及紅海的交界處,吉布地對於在中東運輸交通的流暢具有策略性位置。對於以福音接觸該區域來講,也同樣具有策略性。雖然在2009年受迫害的國家守望名單中排名第39,他們對於宣教相對地來說,也算是開放的,人們對於生命的靈糧有更多的飢渴。禱告該地的同工將耶穌基督的好消息—他的生、死與復活—帶給正在等候的人們。禱告神為這個具策略性地位的國家,神的國度能行在地上如同行在天上。

Djibouti- Located at the juncture of the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea, Djibouti is strategic to the flow of shipping traffic in the Middle East. It is also quite strategic to reaching this region with the Gospel. Though it ranks number 39 on the 2009 Watch List for persecution, the nation is relatively open in terms of evangelism, the population is hungry for more of the Bread of Life. Pray for workers to take the news of Jesus Christ - His life, death, and resurrection - to the waiting people of Djibouti. Pray for God’s purposes for this carefully placed nation to be fulfilled His Kingdom will come on earth as it is in Heaven in this nation.

葉門—該國將近100%都是伊斯蘭教徒,而且這國家的部落族群長時間以來有綁架百姓及移居海外者的歷史,以便他們可以向政府勒索。即便受害者通常都會毫髮無傷地被釋放,這個行徑卻說明這種不法的的行為在這個區域非常猖獗。禱告神的靈將不法的靈趕出去,以祂的和平取代貪婪與暴力,並以一個不屈服的渴望幫助那些有需要的人。為這個在屬靈上抵擋的硬土國家能有一個柔軟的心禱告。禱告福音可以穿透仇敵矇蔽葉門百姓眼睛的帕子,在接下來的30天有數千名新信徒來到主前。

Yemen- Nearly l00% Islamic, the tribes of this nation have a long history of kidnapping civilians and expatriates in order to extort money from their governments. Though the victims are usually released without harm, the practice speaks of the lawlessness that is rampant throughout the region. Pray for God’s Spirit to drive out the spirit of lawlessness, replacing greed and violence with His peace, and an unyielding desire to help those in need. Pray for a softening of hearts in this hard, spiritually resistant nation. Pray for the Gospel to pierce the veil the enemy has draped over the eyes of the people of Yemen, and revival will break out in this land with multiple thousands of new Believers coming to the Lord in the next thirty days.

越南—仇敵正努力企圖透過一個頗受歡迎的假宗教—法輪功來欺騙該國的百姓。雖然法輪功在中國已被禁止,但據稱在越南發現一個「新的滋生地」。它已經吸引許多人因它宣稱健康的益處,並假意教導跟隨者要做「好人」。禱告神揭露這正在成長的運動後面的謊言,並向越南人民顯明「所有人都犯罪且虧缺」神的榮耀。禱告他們能了解沒有任何冥想所帶來的份量或甚至好行為會超過他們的罪。禱告耶穌基督這份難以描述的禮物能在越南被人知道,並每個越南人會接受耶穌基督成為生命的主及救主。

Vietnam- The enemy is working hard to deceive the people of this nation through a popular false religion called Falun Gong. Already banned in China, it has reportedly found a “new breeding ground” in Vietnam. It has attracted many because of its alleged health benefits and pretends to teach followers to be “good people.” Pray for God to expose the lies of this growing movement and reveal to the Vietnamese that “all have sinned and fall short” of His glory. Pray for them to realize that no amount of meditation or even good works can outweigh their sin. Pray for the indescribable gift of Jesus Christ to be made known in Vietnam, and every Vietnamese would accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

台灣—前總統陳水扁的審判說明了這個國家持續面對身分認同的危機。被控以政治罪行起訴,這個案件使執政及朝野兩黨互相競爭敵對。一方尋求與中國有更近的連結,另一方卻尋求獨立。為這個衝突被用來提醒台灣人民,他們只有在耶穌基督的救贖犧牲裡找到真正的獨立來禱告。禱告神實現祂對台灣的心意,建立祂的國度在台灣直到世界的末了。

Taiwan— The trial of former president, Chen Shui-bian illustrates the identity crisis this nation continues to face. Accused of political wrongdoing, the case pits rival parties against each other. One seeks closer ties with China (which considers Taiwan one of its provinces) and the other seeks independence. Pray for this conflict to be used to remind the Taiwanese people that they can only find true independence in the saving sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Pray for God to fulfill His purpose for Taiwan and establish His Kingdom in this island nation and unto the ends of the earth.

巴林—當什葉派穆斯林堅決與統治的遜尼派穆斯林博鬥時,分裂、不和諧及緊張情勢最近在這個小小的島國不斷上升。抗議者步上街頭,據稱警方向示威者以火力攻擊他們。禱告神的平安釋放進入這個緊張的情況中。禱告雙方衝突的眼目能從他們之間的差異轉向耶穌基督裡合一的愛。禱告復興臨到這塊土地,所有巴林的人得救。

Bahrain- Division, disharmony, and tension have recently arisen in this tiny island nation as the majority Shia Muslims contend against the ruling Sunni Muslims. Protests have been staged in the streets and police have reportedly fired on demonstrators. Pray for God’s peace to be released into this volatile situation. Pray for the eyes of both sides of the conflict to be drawn from their differences to the unifying Love of Jesus Christ. Pray revival will come to this land and that all people of Bahrain will be saved.

汶萊—感謝該國相當大的石油與天然氣的儲存量,汶萊的百姓現在享受全球最高生活水準國家之一。該國首相蘇坦據說是在全世界最有錢的人的行列中。禱告神顯明這些財富轉眼如飛而去,在永恆裡是毫無價值的。禱告聖靈傳達死亡與審判的真實,敬虔的悔改充滿在這片土地上。禱告一個全國性的復興。禱告汶萊廣大的資源能被用來擴張神的國度。

Brunei- Thanks to its sizable oil and gas reserves, the citizens of Brunei now enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world. The Prime Minister, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is said to be among the wealthiest men in the world. Pray for God to reveal these riches as fleeting and worthless in terms of Eternity. Pray for the Holy Spirit to communicate the reality of death and judgment to the people and for godly repentance to sweep through the land. Pray for a nation-wide revival. Pray for the vast resources in Brunei to be used for the expansion of God’s Kingdom.

黎巴嫩—國會訂在6月7日的選舉不僅影響黎巴嫩,還有他的鄰國以色列。以色列政府擔心選舉結果會激起對真主黨的支持—一個以黎巴嫩為基地的恐怖份子團體,據稱由敘利亞及伊朗持。禱告神掌權在這些選舉中,將合祂心意的敬虔男女放在合適的位置來領導黎巴嫩。禱告真主黨失去財務及廣大的支持。禱告這些恐怖份子解除外面的武裝,在屬靈上轉化成為至高神的謙卑僕人。禱告聖靈流入黎巴嫩像一條大能的河,掃除每個仇敵的障礙並吸引每個心靠近耶穌基督。( 箴 8:15; 提前 1:15; 賽 59:19)

Lebanon- Parliamentary elections scheduled for June 7 will not only effect Lebanon but its neighbor Israel. The Israeli government is worried election results could fuel support for Hezbollah – a terrorist group based in Lebanon, reportedly supported by Syria and Iran. Pray for God to move sovereignly in these elections, setting in place those men and women He desires to use in leading Lebanon. Pray for the Hezbollah to lose both financial and popular support. Pray for these terrorists to be physically disarmed and spiritually transformed into humble servants of the Most High God. Pray for the Holy Spirit to flow through the Lebanon like a mighty river, sweeping away every enemy barrier and drawing every heart to Jesus Christ. (Proverbs 8:15; I Timothy 1:15; Isaiah 59:19)
