Weekly Prayer Points- January 4 - January 10, 2010

 

►2010年1月4日(日)

January 4

日本/東亞—組織型犯罪在日本極為普遍。其中最大的組織—「日本癟三」—據估計大約有8萬名會員。警方注意到單是在東京這個地方,由犯罪組織經營的公司就有超過800間。一般相信「日本癟三」涉入日本經濟市場極深,且由國外投資者提供資金,而他們並沒有注意到這些犯罪組織的強大影響力。禱告這個違法、邪惡的黑暗組織能夠被終止。禱告他們服務的需求—像是毒品、賣淫、雛妓—注入這個產業的資金會枯竭並消失。禱告日本居民厭惡這惡事的騷擾,並帶領他們走向一個屬神復興的方向。禱告這塊土地會有一個大覺醒,物質主義及貪婪的堅固營壘被拆毀,耶穌基督被高舉超過一切偶像及假神。

JAPAN, EAST ASIA- Organized crime is epidemic in Japan. The largest group – the Yakuza – is estimated to have 80,000 members. Police are aware of more than 800 companies run by organized crime organizations in Tokyo alone. The Yakuza is believed to be heavily involved in Japanese financial markets and funded by foreign investors who are unaware of their powerful influence. Pray for an end to this illegal, immoral, and demonic organization. Pray for the demand for their services –drugs, prostitution, and child pornography – to dry up and for the funding that fuels this industry to evaporate. Pray for this infestation of wickedness to disgust the citizens of Japan and lead them towards a revival in the ways of the LORD. Pray for a great awakening in this land, a tearing down of the strongholds of materialism and greed, and for Jesus Christ to be exalted above every idol and every god.

幾內亞比索/西非—西非多年來的政治不穩定已經為犯罪及腐敗製造了最佳氣氛,如今它已成為一個毒品交易中心—特別是古柯鹼。企業聯盟認為它是走私毒品到歐洲的一個主要轉運站,專家則相信700億中有230億的古柯鹼交易,是透過幾內亞比索成交的。禱告這個具有相當破壞性的交易立刻終止。求神使全球及當地信徒開始迫切地為毒品交易者被逮捕,在違禁品傷害人們之前被查獲禱告。求神使政府有資源可以有效對抗仇敵在每個違法販毒事業的攻擊。禱告南美的供應商、幾內亞比索的販賣商,及歐洲的買家能改變生命—與耶穌基督相遇。禱告那些服事黑暗權勢的人得著釋放,今日接受耶穌為他們生命的主及救主。

GUINEA-BISSAU, WEST AFRICA- Years of political instability in this West African nation have created the perfect atmosphere for crime and corruption. It is now a trafficking hub for drugs – especially cocaine. Cartels consider it a prime transit point for smuggling drugs into Europe. Experts believe that $23 billion of the $70 billion cocaine trade moves through Guinea-Bissau. Pray for an immediate end to this destructive trade. Pray for Believers around the world and inside Guinea-Bissau to begin praying fervently for traffickers to be captured and for their illegal products to be seized before they can harm people. Pray for resources to be provided so the government can effectively fight every satanic attack in the illegal drug trade. Pray for suppliers in South America, traffickers in Guinea-Bissau, and buyers in Europe to have life-changing encounters with Jesus Christ. Pray for those who are serving the powers of darkness to be set free and accept Jesus as their Savior and Lord today.

不丹/南亞—2009年11月,一個來自不丹的代表團在巴西參加一個「國家總體幸福指數」會議。他們發現不丹在履行這方向及概念上是落後的—即便它是從不丹源起的。他們回到家鄉決定要把那地方建設成為一個幸福生活的地方。求神使不丹的百姓了解,真正的快樂及幸福絕不可能發生在與耶穌基督的關係之外。求主使用他們對生活的不滿足來激發他們尋求及尋找真神。禱告他們的心成為柔軟的好土,使福音的種子能在他們心中生根。禱告國家幸福總指數及佛教的謊言與謬論被揭露,耶穌基督的救恩在不丹被宣揚,沒有任何的限制,並且不會遭到強烈反對或報復。禱告豐收的主,在不丹為祂的國度帶來一個極大豐盛的收割如同在天上。

BHUTAN, SOUTH ASIA- A delegation from Bhutan attended a Gross National Happiness (GNH) conference in Brazil in November 2009. They found that Bhutan is falling behind in the implementation of this concept – even though it originated in Bhutan. They returned to their homeland determined to make it a place of well being. Pray for the people of Bhutan to realize that true happiness and well being are impossible outside of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Pray for the Lord to use their dissatisfaction with life to motivate them to seek and find Him. Pray for their hearts to become soft soil for the seed of the Gospel to take root. Pray the lies and fallacies of GNH and Buddhism to be made known and for the truth of salvation in Jesus Christ to be proclaimed throughout the nation without restriction, backlash, or retaliation. Pray for the Lord of the Harvest to bring an abundant harvest to His Kingdom in Bhutan as it is in Heaven.

沙烏地阿拉伯/阿拉伯半島—2009年11月,政府在在葉門對反抗軍發動攻擊( Huthis—一般相信由伊朗支援)。本月也是當其他人去參加許多不同慶典時,全球上百萬名穆斯林卻一生一次去到麥加朝聖之旅的月份。在今年的慣例中,上漲的河水造成水患導致超過100人失去生命,禽流感爆發的可能性也引起負責健康的官員極大的關切。禱告神使用這樣的慶典活動,使沙烏地阿拉伯人質疑伊斯蘭教、他們國家及生命財產的安全。禱告因著不安定及不確定使他們有渴望來尋求在耶穌基督裡的避難所。禱告伊斯蘭的堅固營壘被拆毀,而當聖靈打開屬靈的瞎眼及耳朵聽見福音時,假宗教發源地成為對耶穌基督大覺醒的一個焦點。禱告成群視生活行為是一種進天堂方式的阿拉伯人,轉向只有在耶穌基督神兒子裡才能找到的恩典。禱告神的國度榮耀地降臨在沙烏地阿拉伯如同在天上。

SAUDI ARABIA, ARABIAN PENINSULA- The government launched attacks on rebels in Yemen (Huthis – believed to be supported by Iran) in November 2009. It was also the month in which millions of Muslims from around the world made their once-in-a-lifetime trip (hajj) to Mecca, while others come on several occasions. During this year’s rite, rising water which caused floods resulted in the deaths of more than 100 people, and the possibility of a swine flu outbreak caused great concern to health officials. Pray for these events to be used by the Lord to cause Saudis to question Islam, as well as the security of their nation and lives. Pray for the instability and uncertainty to give them a desire to seek refuge in Jesus Christ. Pray for the strongholds of Islam to be torn down and for the birthplace of this false religion to become the focal point of a great awakening to Christ as the Holy Spirit opens spiritually blind eyes and ears to the Good News. Pray for a multitude of Saudis to turn away from works as a means to paradise, and turn toward the grace of the Lord found only in His Son, Jesus Christ. Pray for God’s Kingdom to come gloriously to Saudi Arabia as it is in Heaven.

幾內亞/西非—軍隊領袖卡麥拉堅持他握權是為了將幾內亞從一個貪腐的狀態中拯救出來,並且有資格可以競選總統。反對團體則要求他下台,並且禁止他在要來的總統選舉中參選。2009年9月,150名人士抗議卡麥拉遭到軍隊槍殺。2009年12月,卡麥拉在他自己屬下企圖發動一場政變時受傷。禱告和平之子介入並為這個在患難中的國家帶來平安。禱告卡麥拉謙卑自己,謀求百姓的福祉遠超過自己的好處。求神興起那些敬畏祂名、有正直品格的男女,帶領這個國家向前行。求神使用這個混亂帶領許多人心歸向他,進入一個與神親密的個人關係裡。

GUINEA, WEST AFRICA- Military leader Moussa Dadis Camara insists that he seized power in order to save Guinea from a corrupt government and has the right to run for president. Opposition groups are demanding that he step down and be barred from the upcoming presidential election. In September 2009, 150 people demonstrating against Camara were gunned down by the military. In December 2009, Camara was wounded when his own solders attempted a coup. Pray for the Prince of Peace to intervene and bring lasting peace to this troubled nation. Pray for Camara to humble himself and seek the good of the people of Guinea rather than his own good. Pray for the Lord to raise up men and women of integrity, who fear His Name, to lead the country forward. Pray for this turmoil to be used by the Lord to draw many hearts into a personal relationship with Him.

泰國/東南亞—為紀念世界愛滋日(12月1日),泰國政府籌劃許多實物範例來教導群眾有關「安全性行為」,並發送3千萬個保險套試圖減緩愛滋病的蔓延。大部分感染者都是年輕人,主要感染途徑都是經由不當的性行為所導致。禱告泰國的領袖了解,對抗罪的表徵是不會帶來解決的良方。求神使小男孩、小女孩及婦女的人口販賣交易能立即終止。禱告泰國過獨身生活的年輕人,他們的心會改變,將他們的注意力從無益的情慾及自我毀滅的行為中,轉為在耶穌基督裡找到生命及滿足。禱告愛滋病的升高能促使得許多泰國人思想他們的道德行為,因而激發他們預備那等候他們的死後審判。禱告愛滋病毒的蔓延會終止。禱告當神的國度大能以神蹟奇事降臨在泰國時,這將會是一個靈魂豐收的季節。

THAILAND, SOUTHEAST ASIA- To commemorate World AIDS Day (December 1), the government of Thailand staged a number of demonstrations intended to educate the public about “safe sex.” They also gave away 30 million condoms in an attempt to slow the AIDS epidemic. Those infected are mostly youth, the majority having contracted the disease through immoral sexual behavior. Pray for the leaders of Thailand to realize that fighting the symptoms of sin will not bring about a cure. Pray for an immediate end to the trafficking of little boys and little girls and of women in Thailand. Pray for a change of heart among the young people of Thailand to live a life of celibacy– for the Lord to turn their attention from the futility of lust and self-destructive behavior toward the Life and satisfaction found In Jesus Christ. Pray that the rise in HIV/AIDS to cause many Thais to consider their mortality and motivate them to prepare for the judgment that awaits them after death. Pray for an end of the spread of the HIV/AIDS virus. Pray for this to be a season of harvest of souls to the Lord in Thailand as the Kingdom of God comes in great power, with signs, wonders, and miracles.

尼日/西非—由於總統覃賈對權力極度渴望,不想透過再選獲取政權,不僅造成尼日政治的混亂,現在已成為一個「憲法的危機」。去年11月,歐盟發佈一個凍結對尼日所有發展需要資源及次序必須恢復的最後期限。尼日是目前在聯合國人權發展指數中排名最後的國家。求神保護尼日的百姓免於受到剛愎領袖,不負責任及不道德的對待。為總統覃賈禱告,不僅聽見更能回應福音,將他的生命降服於耶穌基督。禱告屬靈的轉化—以基督為中心在尼日發生,以致政府、教育、健康及生活狀態的轉化發生。禱告神的國度在尼日建立如同在天上。

NIGER, WEST AFRICA- The political turmoil in Niger, brought about by President Mamadou Tandja’s desperate and illegal attempts to stay in power without being reelected, is now being called a “constitutional crisis.” In November, the European Union issued a deadline for order to be restored and froze all developmental aid to Niger. The nation is ranked last on the U.N. Human Development Index. Pray for the Lord to protect the people of Niger from the irresponsible and unethical dealings of its wayward leader. Pray for President Tandja to hear and respond to the Gospel, surrendering his life to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Pray for spiritual transformation that is Christ-centered in Niger that will result in a corresponding transformation in government, education, health care, and living conditions. Pray for the Kingdom of God to be established in Niger as it is in Heaven.

吉爾吉斯/中亞—整個冬天,這個前蘇聯共和國面臨嚴重缺電的可能。這是由於鄰國烏茲別克斯坦決定他們要與區域性的電網隔離所導致的結果,而供應吉爾吉斯的電源線經過烏茲別克斯坦。禱告主會供應溫暖及電力給所有當地貧窮百姓的需要。禱告聖靈賜給領袖一個創新的方式來供應該國電力的需要。禱告神使用他們在自然領域中的需要,成為他們在屬靈領域中認識並依靠神大能的一幅圖畫。禱告成群的吉爾吉斯人從伊斯蘭教回轉,並擁抱耶穌基督令人驚嘆的真光,接受祂成為救主及生命的主。

KYRGYZSTAN, CENTRAL ASIA- Throughout the winter this former Soviet republic faces the possibility of severe electricity shortages. This comes as a result of neighboring Uzbekistan’s decision to disassociate itself from the regional power grid. The power lines that supply Kyrgyzstan run through Uzbekistan. Pray the Lord will provide warmth and electricity for and provide all of the felt needs of the impoverished people of Kyrgyzstan. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give leaders new and inventive ideas for supplying power to the nation. Pray for their need for power in the physical realm to be used as a picture of their need to know and depend upon the Lord’s power in the spiritual realm. Pray for multitudes of Kyrgyz to turn their backs on Islam and embrace the marvelous Light of Jesus Christ, accepting Him as their Savior and Lord.

伊朗/中東—根據伊朗政府發佈的一項聲明指出,最高的領袖阿瓦特拉「不能從他的職位中被挪移,因為他的合法性是來自於神」。去年11月,該國抵擋聯合國要調查核武位置所做的努力。他們誓言不僅要持續並要擴展他們的核武計畫。國際輿論對伊朗表示「時間已經用盡」。求神的大能運行在伊朗,使祂的光興起毫無攔阻地照進黑暗裡。禱告萬軍之耶和華摧毀、推翻伊斯蘭的堅固營壘、操弄及自私的野心。禱告聖靈在伊朗作孕育孵化的工作,使被擄的得釋放,瞎眼的能看見,耳聾的能聽見。禱告福音在這國家被宣揚,當伊朗人將他們的信心放在耶穌這位救主及生命之主的身上時,主會帶來一個極大靈魂的豐收。

IRAN, MIDDLE EAST- According to a statement issued by the government of Iran, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei “cannot be removed from his post because his legitimacy comes from God.” In November, the nation resisted efforts by the UN to inspect nuclear sites. They have vowed to not only continue but expand their nuclear program. The international consensus is that “time is running out” for Iran. Pray for the Lord to move powerfully in Iran, shining His unavoidable, unstoppable Light into the darkness. Pray for the strongholds of Islam, manipulation, and selfish ambition to be torn down and demolished by the Lord of Hosts. Pray for the Holy Spirit to brood over Iran, setting captives free, giving sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf. Pray for the Gospel to be proclaimed throughout the land and for the Lord to bring an abundant harvest of souls into His kingdom as Iranians put their trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

布吉納法索/西非—因著2009年9月年在當地發生破壞殆盡致命的水患,大約有10萬人口被迫遠離家園,而大約有1萬4千人持續生活在瓦加杜古首都一個暫時的帳棚裡。政府現在試圖重新安置這些生還者,並在重建的過程中協助他們。禱告神供應滋補的食物、清潔的水、避難所、健康照顧、及盼望給那些失去家園及親人者。禱告基督教人道工作者能被允許參與在這重建的過程中,提供只有在耶穌基督裡才能找到身體及心靈上所需要的救助。禱告福音能在該國被傳講,到處都見證神蹟奇事,並且當地人透過將生命降服,並接受耶穌基督為主及生命的主來回應這救恩。

BURKINA FASO, WEST AFRICA- An estimated l00,000 people in Burkina Faso were displaced in devastating and deadly floods that occurred in September 2009. Approximately l4,000 continue to live in temporary camps in the capital of Ouagadougou. The government is now attempting to relocate these survivors and assist them in the process of rebuilding. Pray for the Lord to provide nutritious food, clean water, shelter, health care, and hope for those who have lost homes and family members. Pray for Christian humanitarian workers to be allowed to be part of the restoration process, offering both physical and spiritual relief that can only be found in Jesus Christ. Pray for the Gospel to be preached and signs and wonders witnessed throughout Burkina Faso and for Burkinabes to respond by surrendering their lives accepting Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

馬利/西非—在1千2百萬的馬利人口中,大約有1.7%的人感染愛滋病。有一則消息來源指出,「愛滋病的特徵還是很強烈,但一夫多妻的傳統婚姻方式加增了防止感染的挑戰。」禱告神供應那些已經感染者適合的藥品。禱告愛滋防範的教育課程有果效的實行,阻止病毒的散佈。為尾隨愛滋病之後所遺留下來的孤兒與寡婦禱告—神會供應他們食物、衣服、避難所、家庭,以及最重的是祂的愛。禱告愛滋被神使用來帶領許多心靈及生命進入到與神獨生子耶穌基督的關係中。禱告在下一個十年,愛滋病在2020年之前完全根除。

MALI, WEST AFRICA- Approximately 1.7% of Mali’s 12 million people are infected with HIV/AIDS. As one source notes, “the stigma surrounding AIDS is still strong, but a tradition of polygamous marriage adds to the challenge of preventing transmission.” Pray for the Lord to supply medicine for those already suffering from AIDS. Pray for HIV/AIDS prevention education to be made available that will help stop the spread of the virus. Pray for the orphans and widows left in the wake of the disease – for the Lord to provide those in need with food, clothing, shelter, families, and most of all, His Love. Pray for AIDS to be used by the Lord to draw many hearts and lives into relationship with His only Son, Jesus Christ. Pray for the eradication of AIDS within the next decade, by 2020.

亞塞拜然/西南亞—專家說該國與亞美尼亞之間,在納哥諾-卡拉巴赫共和國區域長期的衝突可能即將終止。雙方的協調者重申他們對於致力於尋求解決之道的承諾。1993年,在一個脆弱的熄火協議達成之前,有超過1百萬人被迫離開,並有3萬人遭到殺害。禱告真正及持續的和平臨到這個區域。禱告神帶來亞塞拜然及亞美尼亞的和好。為那些被驅離和失去家園及親人者禱告。禱告神的國臨到納哥諾-卡拉巴赫,耶穌基督被高舉遠超過其他假神與偶像之上。禱告福音的真光趕走該國所有的黑暗,成群的當地人接受耶穌基督成為他們的救主及生命的主。

AZERBAIJAN, SOUTHWEST ASIA- Experts say the longstanding conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region may be coming to an end. Negotiators on both sides have reaffirmed their commitment to work towards a resolution. Over one million people were displaced and 30,000 killed before a fragile ceasefire was reached in 1993. Pray for true and lasting peace to come to this region. Pray for the Lord to bring reconciliation between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Pray for those who have been displaced who have lost homes and families. Pray for the Kingdom of God to come to Nagorno-Karabakh and for Jesus to be exalted far above all other gods and idols. Pray for the Light of the Gospel to dispel all darkness in Azerbaijan and for multitudes to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

貝南/西非—隨著索馬里在東非海岸遭到巨大破壞,西非現正對付自己的海盜。奈及利亞的恐怖份子試圖在貝南的海岸劫船。雖然海盜在奈及利亞海岸線有時很活躍,他們正延伸他們的觸角在貝南的水域。禱告神給貝南政府智慧來應付這樣的威脅。禱告海盜們被混淆徒勞無功。禱告貪婪的靈及流人血的事被捆綁無法產生效力。禱告神的靈運行在海盜的心中,帶來屬神的憂傷、知罪及真正的悔改。禱告所有海盜的行動立刻終止。禱告神的國大有能力地降臨在貝南,轉化許多人的生命。

BENIN, WEST AFRICA- With Somalis wreaking havoc off the coast of East Africa, West Africa is now having to contend with its own pirates. Nigerian terrorists have begun attempting to hijack ships off the coast of Benin. Though pirates have sometimes been active off the shores of Nigeria, they are extending their reach into the territorial waters of Benin. Pray for the Lord to give the government of Benin wisdom in dealing with this threat. Pray for the pirates to be confused and for their efforts to fail. Pray for the spirits of greed and bloodshed to be bound and rendered powerless. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of the pirates, bringing godly sorrow, a conviction of sin, and true repentance. Pray for an immediate end to all acts of piracy. Pray for the Kingdom of God to come to Benin in power, transforming multitudes of lives.

印尼/東南亞—一項深入調查印尼政府貪腐狀況的報告顯示,兩名反貪腐的官員是其中問題的一部份。這事件頗具爭議性因有些人相信這兩名官員之所以成為目標,是為了阻止他們更進一步地揭露其他貪腐的官員。總統蘇西羅誓言要解決這問題並警告將有更多的辭職及停職會來到。求神揭露各階層的貪腐,以及那些正企圖掩飾其非法行為的人。禱告那些犯下詐欺及說謊罪的人會很快地被找到並面對公義的處置。求神使該國總統以正直行事,堅持肅清他的政府。禱告印尼的百姓看見罪需付出的代價,並且選擇轉離它,擁抱只有在耶穌基督裡才有的免費生命的禮物。

INDONESIA, SOUTHEAST ASIA- An investigation into government corruption in Indonesia revealed that two anti-corruption officials were part of the problem. The case is controversial because some believe the officials were targeted in order to keep them from further exposing other corrupt officials. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has vowed to clamp down on this problem and warned that more resignations and suspensions would be coming. Pray for the Lord to expose the all levels of the corruption and those who are attempting to cover up their illegal behavior. Pray for those guilty of cheating and lying to be swiftly found out and quickly brought to justice. Pray for President Yudhoyono to act with integrity and tenacity in cleaning up his government. Pray for the people of Indonesia to see the wages of sin and choose to turn away from it, embracing the free gift of Life found only in Jesus Christ.
