北緯10/40之窗禱告焦點

2010年6月7-13日

Weekly Prayer Points- June 7 -13, 2010

 

2010年6月7日

尼日/西非—在尼日加入馬利、阿爾及利亞及茅利塔尼亞共同設立一個對抗在伊斯蘭教馬格里布蓋達組織(簡稱AQIM)的聯合崗哨兩三天之後,一名法國觀光客及他的司機遭到綁架。這起綁架案發生的區域被認為是一個無人煙之地,以及人人都避之唯恐不及的走私地區。專家說,這類型的綁架—經常在此區域發生—通常是當地強盜在犯案之後把人質交給AQIM。禱告尼日的政府在面對AQIM與日俱增的威脅能尋求神的謀略。祈求神將他們的隱藏地點及訓練營曝光,擊潰他們招募、獲取資金和發動破壞行動的企圖。禱告尼日百姓看見AQIM的邪惡計畫與行動,並能與政府共同合作對抗他們。祈求主用這個伊斯蘭極端主義份子的例子,使許多人的心轉向耶穌基督--真實且生命的道路。

NIGER, WEST AFRICA
A matter of days after Niger joined Mali, Algeria, and Mauritania in setting up a joint-command post to fight al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), a French tourist and his driver were kidnapped. The region where the abduction took place is considered a no-man’s land and a smuggling zone that is to be avoided at all costs. Experts say these kinds of kidnappings – which take place regularly in this area – are often carried out by local bandits who then turn their hostages over to the AQIM. Pray for the government of Niger to seek the council of the Lord in dealing with the growing threat of the AQIM. Ask Him to expose their hideouts and training camps, and to defeat their attempts to recruit, obtain funding, and launch destructive acts. Pray for the people of Niger to see the evil plans and actions of AQIM and cooperate with the government in defending against them. Petition the Lord to use this example of extremist Islam to turn many hearts toward the true and living way – Jesus Christ.

吉爾吉斯/中亞—2010年4月被示威抗議趕下台的前總統巴基耶夫,起初誓言要回到執政狀態。然而在離開吉爾吉斯幾星期之後,他承認他沒有計畫「以總統的身分回到吉爾吉斯」,巴基耶夫說他離開比什凱克是因為內戰的威脅,同時也因為他的家人處在危險中。新總統的選舉尚未決定於2010年的10月舉行。求神帶領這國家向前成為祂起初創造她的樣式—以福音接觸這些百姓,在全國帶下神的國度。禱告伊斯蘭教有一個極大的甦醒及回轉,新的領導政權尊敬人民,以正直服務他們。

KYRGYZSTAN, CENTRAL ASIA
After being driven from office by protests in April 2010, former president Kurmanbek Bakiyev initially vowed to return to power. After a few weeks out of the country, however, he admitted that he was not planning to “return to Kyrgyzstan as president.” Bakiyev said he left the capital of Bishkek because of the threat of civil war and also because his family was in danger. New presidential elections are now set to be held in October 2010. Ask the Lord to guide this nation forward to become all that He created it to be – reaching the people with the Gospel and bringing God’s Kingdom throughout Kyrgyzstan. Pray for a great awakening and a turning away from Islam, and for the new leadership to respect the citizens and serve them with integrity.

2010年6月8日

伊朗/中東—面對聯合國所提出的新制裁,伊朗選擇不停止她的核武計畫,反倒取而代之的是尋求形成一個新聯盟來幫助她加以反擊。2010年四月,總理阿馬迪訪問非洲,即是致力於穩固支援,目標在於躲避新制裁對於伊朗的影響,也「緩和國際孤立並加強她的經濟。」為屬靈的覺醒發生在伊朗持續禱告—黑暗的帕子從這國家穆斯林的眼中被挪開,聖靈引導他們進入與耶穌基督救主與生命之主的關係中。求主保護百姓免於政府可能會傷害、壓制及使他們在經濟方面受苦的決定。禱告信徒在面對逼迫時有勇氣、剛強壯膽,見證只有在耶穌基督裡才能找到真理與生命。

IRAN, MIDDLE EAST
With new sanctions being proposed by the United Nations, Iran is choosing not to halt its nuclear program and instead is seeking to form new alliances to help it fight back. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Africa in April 2010 in an effort to bolster support. The aim was to evade the impact sanctions will have on Iran, as well as “ease its international isolation and strengthen its economy.” Pray for the spiritual awakening taking place in Iran to continue – for the veil of darkness to be removed from the eyes of the nation’s Muslims and for the Holy Spirit to lead them into relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Ask the Lord to protect the people from decisions by government leaders that might harm them, oppress them, and cause them to suffer economically. Pray for Believers to be bold, strong, and courageous as they face persecution, testifying to the truth and life found only in Jesus Christ.

布吉納法索/西非—在西方已被根除的疾病持續使布吉納法索受折磨。過去幾個月,腦膜炎、痲疹及小兒麻痺爆發的情況已被揭發。禱告基督教人道救援組織有機會與資源能供應醫藥方面的照顧及疫苗,使這些可防範的疾病停止傳染下去。求主透過這些救援行動來彰顯祂的國度並為福音開門,吸引男女及孩童進入與耶穌基督個人的關係中。

BURKINA FASO, WEST AFRICA
Diseases that have been eradicated in the West continue to plague Burkina Faso. In the past few months, outbreaks of meningitis, measles, and polio have been reported. Pray for Christian humanitarian agencies to have the opportunity and resources to provide medical care and vaccines to put a stop to these preventable diseases. Ask the Lord to open doors for the preaching and demonstration of His Kingdom through these relief efforts and to draw men, women, and children into relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.

2010年6月9日

馬利/西非—一名在馬利15年的法國救援同工,遭到伊斯蘭教馬格里布蓋達組織綁架。在折磨三個月獲釋後,這名同工告訴記者綁架他的人毆打他,並一再地要他改信伊斯蘭教。他說,「他們是瘋子」、「危險的蠢蛋」。禱告馬利政府運用洞察力來應付與AQIM和其他組織溝通。為馬利的百姓代禱,求主打開他們的眼睛看見恐怖份子邪惡的態度、信仰及行動,將他們轉離伊斯蘭教極端主義份子。禱告聖靈打開人們對福音耳聾的情況,神的國臨到馬利如同行在天上。

MALI, WEST AFRICA
A French aid worker spent 15 years in Mali before being abducted by al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). When he was released after a three-month ordeal, he told reporters his kidnappers had beaten him and continually attempted to convert him to Islam. “They are fanatics,” he said, “dangerous fools.” Pray for the protection of expatriates, humanitarian aid workers, and the citizens of Mali. Pray for the government of Mali to use discernment in dealing with and negotiating with AQIM and other groups. Intercede for the people of Mali, asking the Lord to open their eyes to the evil attitudes, beliefs, and actions of the terrorists and turn them away from extremist Islam. Pray for the Holy Spirit to open deaf ears to the Gospel and for the Kingdom of God to come to Mali as it is in heaven.

亞塞拜然/西南亞—歐洲人權法庭對一名亞塞拜然直言不諱的記者遭到逮捕與拘留,視為違反人權。法院說,該政府對於這名記者的待遇是十分惡劣的,並且與自由表達的規範不相襯。亞塞拜然因「人們表達他們的觀點受懲處」遭到控訴,並利用假起訴來懲罰那些對政府發出反對聲音的人。求主重建這個國家的自由,使百姓從政府政策及伊斯蘭教的壓制下得自由。禱告違反人權能被運用使得亞塞拜然的人思想宇宙中真正的權柄,及一切權力的源頭,那位唯一能使他們超越一切障礙的耶穌基督。

AZERBAIJAN, SOUTHWEST ASIA
The arrest and detainment of one of Azerbaijan’s most outspoken journalists has been deemed a violation of human rights by the European Court of Human Rights. The court said the government’s treatment of this man was a gross and disproportionate restriction of freedom of expression. Azerbaijan has been accused of “punishing people for expressing their views” and using bogus charges to punish those who voice opposition to the government. Ask the Lord to restore freedom to this nation, liberating the people from oppressive government policies, as well as from the oppression of Islam. Pray for human rights violations to be used to cause Azeris to consider the true authority of the universe, the source of all power, and the One who can enable them to overcome any obstacles: Jesus Christ.

2010年6月10日

貝南╱西非—根據世界衛生組織報導,瘧疾持續成為貝南一個嚴重的問題。每年有150萬到300萬的人死於此病,其中1/3人口是住在原本瘧疾已被根除的區域,但現在又回到之前的狀態。協助工作正在貝南展開,包括提供清潔用水、破壞蚊子的繁殖地,這些都使治療變得快速有效。禱告主在對抗這波可預防的疾病挑戰中會供應資源。求主賜給貝南領袖有智慧,確保這些終止瘧疾的資金與供應物資能被妥善使用,送達到最需要的人手中。邀請神的國臨到貝南如同行在天上,當這國家的百姓將他們的信心放在耶穌基督這位救主及生命之主手中時,會帶下身體、情緒及屬靈的健康。

BENIN, WEST AFRICA
According to the World Health Organization, malaria continues to be a serious problem in nations like Benin. Each year it kills between 1.5 and 3 million people, one-third of whom live in areas where malaria was eliminated, but is now returning. Work is currently underway in Benin to provide clean water and destroy mosquito breeding grounds, as well as make treatment readily available. Pray for the Lord to provide the resources in this challenging fight against a preventable disease. Ask Him to give wisdom to authorities in Benin and to ensure that the funds and supplies intended to end malaria are used properly and reach the places and people who need them most. Invite God’s Kingdom to come to Benin as it is in heaven, bringing physical, emotional, and spiritual health as the people of this nation put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

印尼/東南亞—一個印尼好戰恐怖份子組織中的三名成員,2010年三月在靠近雅加達附近的一場突襲中遭殺害,其他涉嫌份子也因政府在亞齊省施壓根除恐怖份子遭到逮捕。其中一人遭政府當局殺害,經辨認後發現這位名叫督馬丁的人,他是JI組織裡頂尖的爆破專家。為印尼政府禱告,他們尋求破壞JI及其他與蓋達組織有連結的團體。禱告這些行動不僅能將這些恐怖份子逮捕入監,更能引起其他好戰份子恐慌並逃離這個區域。切求JI在印尼被擊潰,並且不能在其他地方組織起來。求神保護印尼的百姓,使福音能遍傳這國家,神的國以大能臨到印尼。

INDONESIA, SOUTHEAST ASIA
Three members of Jemaah Islamiah (JI), an Indonesian terrorist group, were killed in a raid near Jakarta in March 2010. Other suspected members were also arrested in the government’s push to eradicate terrorist in the Aceh province. One of the men killed by authorities was identified as Dulmatin, a top ranking JI bomb specialist. Pray for the Indonesian government in their quest to destroy JI and other groups affiliated with al-Qaeda. Pray for these operations to not only result in the arrest and imprisonment of terrorists, but cause other militants to panic and flee the region. Plead for JI to be defeated in Indonesia and unable to organize elsewhere. Pray for the protection of the people of Indonesia, for the Gospel to be preached throughout the nation, and for the Kingdom of God to come to Indonesia in power.

2010年6月11日

寮國/東南亞—寮國在「敞開門戶」(Open Doors)2010年發表的全球基督徒受迫害之國家守望名單中排名第9,該國政府始終處心積慮的要根除基督徒。2010年4月,數份監督團體報告指出,寮國當局「害怕到處都有基督徒」,並正逮捕家教會領袖,毫無理由的拘留他們。其中一例是一名牧師入監六個月都沒有任何審訊。寮國被「敞開門戶」形容為一個「共產主義管理的國家,當地基督徒少數社群的成員被官方視為「西方政治意識形態下無愛國心的起因」。求主與寮國信徒同在,特別那些因信仰入監的人,以主的愛提醒他們,並以鼓勵和希望來支持他們。禱告他們能在主裡站立得穩,他們的忠心會成為社會、政府權柄、法官、守衛及同樣被囚禁的夥伴一個強有力的見證。邀請神的國來到寮國,影響社會的每個層面,對每個族群傳講福音,帶領許多人心信靠耶穌基督為救主及生命的主。


LAOS, SOUTHEAST ASIA
Already ranked number nine of the Open Doors World Watch List 2010 of worst persecutors of Christians, the government of Laos continues to be diligent in attempting to eradicate Christianity. In April 2010, several watchdog groups reported that authorities in Laos “fear the spread of Christianity” and are arresting house church leaders and detaining them without charges. In one case, a pastor was jailed for six months without a trial. Laos is described by Open Doors as a “Communist-run nation where members of the Christian minority (just over 1% of the population) are viewed by officials as ‘unpatriotic agents of Western political ideology.’” Ask the Lord to be present with Believers in Laos, especially those in prison for their faith, reminding them of His love and providing them with encouragement and hope. Pray for them to stand strong in the Lord and for their faithfulness to be a powerful testimony to their communities, authorities, judges, guards, and their fellow prisoners. Invite the Kingdom of God to come to Laos, impacting every level of society and for the Gospel to be preached to every people group, bringing multitudes to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

西撒哈拉/北非—2010年4月,聯合國秘書長潘基文將軍在西撒哈拉發表了一份「找出一個解決35年衝突方案的承諾」,並表達他「憂慮在這資源豐富的領土上,有違反人權的情況」。禱告這些關切及承諾能化為行動,包括聯合國及世界其他許多國家一同努力重建撒哈拉的自由,使他們能重返家園。求主差遣一些勞工進入阿爾及利亞的難民營中,打開門戶以致他們可以對這些遭受驅離的百姓宣揚並表明福音的大能。為西撒哈拉屬靈、情感及身體方面的自由禱告,神的國以大能、神蹟奇事的方式臨到當地。

WESTERN SAHARA, NORTH AFRICA
United nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon stated in April 2010 his “commitment to finding a solution to the 35-year-old conflict” in Western Sahara and said he is “worried about alleged violations of human rights in the resource-rich territory.” Pray for these concerns and promises to translate into action and for the U.N. and many nations throughout the world to work to restore freedom to the Sahrawis and return them to their homeland. Ask the Lord to send laborers to the refugee camps in Algeria and open the doors so they may proclaim and demonstrate the Gospel to this displaced population. Pray for the spiritual, emotional, and physical freedom of the Sahrawis and for God’s Kingdom to come in great power, with signs, wonders, and miracles.

2010年6月12日

埃及/北非—一個關於在西奈半島可能發生恐怖份子攻擊的警告被發布後一星期,一枚火箭在此區域發射,而兩枚原本以為要針對以色列的火箭卻擊中了約旦。禱告主給埃及政府智慧、洞察力及新的點子與策略來擊退在他們邊境內的恐怖主義。求神保護以色列,並混亂那些企圖傷害國家,使區域不穩定、或引起戰爭的極端主義份子組織。捆綁暴力及破壞的靈在埃及工作,釋放神的平安。禱告神的國度降臨如同行在天上,埃及的百姓聽見並回應福音,將他們的信心放在耶穌基督這位救主與生命的主身上。

EGYPT, NORTH AFRICA
A warning about a possible terrorist attack in the Sinai was followed a week later by a rocket launch in this region. Two rockets hit Jordan, but were thought to be aimed at Israel. Pray for the Lord to give the government of Egypt wisdom, discernment, and new ideas and strategies for combating terrorism inside their borders. Ask Him to protect Israel and to confuse extremist groups who may be plotting to do that nation harm and destabilize the region, resulting in war. Bind the spirits of violence and destruction at work in Egypt and loose the peace of God. Pray for God’s Kingdom to come as it is in heaven, and for the people of Egypt to hear and respond to the Gospel, putting their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

烏茲別克斯坦/中亞—根據論壇18新聞指出「亞塞拜然為了行使他們的宗教或信仰自由,持續拘留穆斯林和基督徒。」舉例來說,新聞服務引述最近在勞動營裡,有三名穆斯林婦女因為參與一個未經許可的聚會而被判7年徒刑,一名浸信會牧師因被指控販賣假藥判處10年徒刑。其他兩名基督徒也在2010年4月遭逮捕拘留。禱告亞塞拜然領袖的態度和內心有一個立即和全面性的轉化。禱告主向這些領袖,也同時向這個前蘇聯國家的穆斯林顯明祂自己。禱告一個極大的覺醒、復興,並神的國度以大能及榮耀的方式臨到該國。

UZBEKISTAN, CENTRAL ASIA
According to Forum 18 News, “Uzbekistan continues to jail Muslims and Christians for exercising their freedom of religion or belief.” As examples, the news service sites the recent sentencing of three Muslim women to seven years in a labor camp for participating in an unauthorized meeting, and a Baptist minister’s 10-year prison term for false drug charges. Two other Christians were also arrested and held in April 2010. Pray for an immediate and total transformation of the attitudes and hearts of the leaders of Uzbekistan. Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to them, as well as to the many Muslims in this former Soviet nation. Pray for a time of great awakening, revival, and for the Kingdom of God to come in power and glory.

2010年6月13日

尼泊爾/南亞—2010年4月下旬,國際觀察家警告一個「憲法的崩潰」可能會臨到尼泊爾。首相卡摩達合在2009年5月辭職下台後,聯合政府當時正面臨要改寫一個新憲法,卻直到2010年5月28日才完成,因毛派份子站在反對政府的立場一直在過程中阻撓。毛派份子進行大規模的示威抗議,並在5月1日罷工,其目標是「迫使政府出局」。禱告主使祂所設立的領袖能在職務上繼續帶領尼泊爾邁向祂為他們所預備的特別的未來。禱告主澆灌祂的聖靈在這個國家,促使正在醞釀的復興加速發生,並且拆毀毛派主義、印度教及每個敵對神智慧的假哲學的堅固營壘。禱告福音傳向尼泊爾的百姓,並有許多人相信耶穌基督是他們的救主及生命的主。

NEPAL, SOUTH ASIA
In late April 2010, international observers warned that a “constitutional crash” may be coming to Nepal. After the resignation in May 2009 of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the coalition government was faced with writing a new constitution. They have until May 28, 2010 to finish it, but Maoists in opposition to the government have been blocking the process. The aim of the Maoists, who staged massive demonstrations and strikes on May Day (May 1), is to “force the government out.” Pray for the Lord to set in place the leaders of His choosing and to continue guiding Nepal forward toward the special future He has in store for it. Ask the Lord to pour out the Holy Spirit on this nation, fueling the revival which is already underway, tearing down strongholds of Maoism, Hinduism, and every false philosophy that sets itself up against the knowledge of God. Pray for the people of Nepal to have the Gospel preached to them and for multitudes to come to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

阿拉伯聯合大公國/阿拉伯半島—2010年4月,人權團體控訴阿拉伯聯合大公國政府利用酷刑當作審問的一種手段。他們說警察使用電擊及毆打來使嫌犯承認罪行。禱告政府以嚴肅態度處理這些申訴,並停止任何濫用人權的情況發生。求主以大能運行在阿拉伯聯合大公國,柔軟人心並且打開屬靈的瞎眼,看見福音的真光和基督的榮耀。禱告百姓會聽見並回應這個好消息,信靠耶穌基督為救主及生命的主。

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, ARABIAN PENINSULA
In April 2010, human rights groups accused the government of the United Arab Emirates of using torture as a means of interrogation. They said police have used electric shock and beatings in order to get confessions from suspects. Pray for the government to take these allegations seriously and to stop any human rights abuses that are taking place. Ask the Lord to move powerfully in UAE, softening hearts and opening blind spiritual eyes to see the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ. Pray for citizens to hear and respond to the Good News, trusting Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
