北緯10/40之窗禱告焦點

2010年8月2-8日

Weekly Prayer Points- August 2 -8, 2010

 

8月2日

蘇丹/北非

 

來自北方大部分是穆斯林和南方大部分是基督徒的代表,正要求聯合國監督一個公民投票,因為此舉會決定Abyei區域的未來。這個區域位在南北中間的位置,也在工業區發展的附近。就在公民投票的同一天,南部將投票決定是否仍然維持是蘇丹的一部分或是成為一個獨立的國家。禱告主帶領及指示居住在同一個國家的兩個政府單位。為蘇丹的未來求告神。在選擇如何管理國家方面,禱告神賜給領袖智慧及分辨力,並這選舉免於作弊與暴力。為那些未得之民族群禱告,他們需要聽見福音的信息。禱告主利用此刻的不確定性使人心及思想歸向耶穌基督。為蘇丹的和平懇求。求主保護信徒的安全,將基督得救的智慧賜給穆斯林。

 

SUDAN, NORTH AFRICA
Representatives of the mostly-Muslim North and mostly-Christian South are asking the United Nations to oversee a referendum vote that will determine the future of the Abyei region. This area, located between the North and South is currently in limbo and is closed to industry and development. On the same day the referendum is scheduled to be voted on, the South will be voting to decide whether to remain part of Sudan or become an independent state. Pray for the Lord to guide and direct the two governments residing in this single nation. Ask for His will for the future of Sudan. Pray for leaders to be given wisdom and discernment in choosing how to govern the country and for elections to be free from rigging and violence. Cry out for those people groups who are unreached and need to hear the Gospel message. Pray for this time of uncertainty to be used by the Lord to turn hearts and minds to Jesus Christ. Plead for peace in Sudan. Ask for the Lord to keep believers safe and bring Muslims to a saving knowledge of Christ.

 

阿富汗/南亞

 

阿富汗政府最近被形容為「受貪腐所支配」,她也被指控為對於在全國運作的塔利班勢力是寬大及恐懼的,而這情形發生在攻擊中一個突發的失敗之後—超過50個聯盟軍隊在2010年前半年都遭到殺害。禱告主給主要的領袖智慧與新的策略,對付折磨這國家的貪腐、恐怖主義及致命性的暴力。求神終止塔利班的統治,使他們從大本營及躲藏的地方中被趕逐出來,揭露他們的計畫,擊敗他們。為聯盟軍隊、阿富汗警方、軍隊及安全防衛隊受保護禱告。求主使他們勝過每個在此區域運作的好戰份子團體的黑暗伎倆。為阿富汗人民自由禱告,使福音在這個被傳開。禱告神對人的心說話,使瞎子的眼睛得開,吸引這個飽受戰爭摧殘國家的人民,進入與耶穌基督這位救主與生命之主的關係中。

 

AFGHANISTAN, SOUTH ASIA

The government of Afghanistan was recently described as “corruption-ridden.” It has also been accused of being lenient and/or afraid of the Taliban forces operating throughout the nation. This comes after a sudden spike in attacks – more than 50 allied troops were killed in the first half of June 2010. Pray for the Lord to give key leaders wisdom and new strategies in dealing with the corruption, terrorism, and deadly violence plaguing this nation. Ask Him to bring the reign of the Taliban to an end, driving them from their strongholds and hiding places, exposing their plans, and bringing them to defeat. Pray for the protection of allied troops, as well as Afghan police, military, and security forces. Pray for the Lord to give them victory over the demonic schemes of every militant group operating in this region. Pray for the freedom of the Afghan people and for the Gospel to be made known throughout this country. Ask the Lord to speak to hearts, open blind spiritual eyes, and draw the citizens of this war-torn nation into relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

8月3日

科威特/阿拉伯半島

 

2010年6月,科威特一個統治家族的王子遭到他叔叔謀害。目前該國政府正調查這樁所謂皇室家族中「史無前例的謀殺」。這名男子被控訴的行動不僅與這名王子有關,也與軍中的情報人員有關。禱告這事件能使科威特的百姓看見罪的影響力、墮落人類的邪惡心腸,了解他們需要一位救主。求主安慰這位王子的家人,使用這悲劇成為顯明祂愛與大能的機會。邀請聖靈在科威特運行,使大部分的穆斯林人口,從伊斯蘭教的謊言及耶穌基督的真理中甦醒過來。禱告神的國度將榮耀地降臨在這個具有策略性位置的國家。

 

KUWAIT, ARABIAN PENINSULA

A prince in the ruling family of Kuwait was murdered by his uncle in June 2010. The government is investigating what they are calling an “unprecedented killing” inside the royal family. The man accused of the act was not only related to the prince, but was a military intelligence officer. Pray for this event to cause citizens in Kuwait to see the effects of sin, the wicked heart of fallen mankind, and realize their need for a Savior. Ask the Lord to comfort the family of the prince, using this tragedy as an opportunity to reveal His love and power. Invite the Holy Spirit to move in Kuwait, awakening the mostly-Muslim population to the lies of Islam and the truth of Jesus Christ. Pray for God’s Kingdom to come with great glory to this strategically positioned nation.

 

巴格達/南亞

 

當巴格達尋求建立民主並對抗恐怖主義之際,西方政府正提供支援給巴格達。這個協助在促進經濟成長,參與對抗恐怖主義的努力,及對該國的生存來說被認為相當重要。讚美主,祂正帶領巴格達遠離貪腐、貧窮及不公義的治理,邁向一個嶄新及充滿盼望的未來。為這個開始不久的國家禱告( 1971年自巴基斯坦獲得獨立),看見主的手引導及祝福巴格達。求主緩和貧窮及艱困的情況,當福音被宣告時,就能從屬靈的壓制中帶來釋放。禱告基督教人道救援組織向許多巴格達人民傳講並顯明神的愛,使他們的信心及信靠能放在耶穌基督這位救主與生命之主的身上。

 

BANGLADESH, SOUTH ASIA

Western governments are offering their support as Bangladesh seeks to establish democracy and fight terrorism. This assistance in promoting economic growth and engaging in counter-terrorism efforts is considered essential to the survival of the nation. Praise God for the way in which He is guiding Bangladesh out of corruption, poverty, and unjust rule, toward a new and hopeful future. Pray for the people of this young nation (which gained independence from Pakistan in 1971) to see the hand of the Lord directing and blessing Bangladesh. Ask the Lord to bring relief from poverty and hardship, and, as the Gospel is proclaimed, relief from spiritual oppression. Pray for Christian humanitarian agencies to preach and demonstrate the love of God and for many Bangladeshis to put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

8月4日

日本/東亞

 

日本政府最近開始質疑西方軍隊基地及武力,策略性地遍佈東亞之用途,日本領袖甚至暗示可能不需要與西方勢力結盟。然而,有一位記者注意到,「日本與她所有的鄰國都曾為領土問題爭論過,包括中國、台灣、韓國與蘇俄」,而軍隊的駐守是「任何好戰的國家在採取任何一個侵略性行動前必須三思而後行的。」禱告日本政府在選擇與其他國家為友,以及如何防衛邊界問題上,運用智慧謹慎行事。呼求神成為他們的保護者,並向當地百姓顯明祂是他們享受祝福的源頭。禱告當神的國降臨日本,福音傳遍整個國家時,一個極大的屬靈覺醒發生。求主在日本賜下靈魂的大豐收。

 

JAPAN, EAST ASIA

The government of Japan recently began questioning the usefulness of western military bases and forces located strategically throughout East Asia. Japanese leaders even implied alliances with western powers might be unnecessary. As one journalist noted, however, “Japan has territorial disputes with all of its neighbors, including both China and Taiwan, as well as Korea and Russia.” The military presence is “there to make any belligerent country think twice before making an aggressive move.” Pray for the government of Japan to exercise great wisdom and caution in choosing whom to be friends with and how to defend its borders. Cry out for the Lord Himself to be their defender and to reveal to the people of Japan that He is responsible for the blessings they enjoy. Pray for a great awakening as the Kingdom of God comes to Japan and the Gospel is preached throughout the nation. Ask the Lord for an abundant harvest of souls in Japan.

幾內亞比索/西非

 

這個西非國家的氣氛被形容為處在一個緊張及不穩定的狀態—瀕臨落入混亂的邊緣。2010年4月1日政變之後,首相卡洛葛姆二世逃到葡萄牙。最近他在層層保安措施下回到國內,現正面臨輿論高漲呼籲他下台的景況。禱告神在這艱困的國家中建立和平,政治和平能為百姓帶來盼望,屬靈的平安帶來永恆的救恩。為這持續循環的權力鬥爭及政變能終止禱告。邀請神的國度來到這個國家,帶來公義、和平及聖靈中的喜樂。

 

GUINEA-BISSAU, WEST AFRICA
The atmosphere in this West African nation is being described as tense and unstable – on the verge of plunging into chaos. After an April 1, 2010 military coup, Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Junior fled to Portugal. He returned recently under heavy security and is now facing a groundswell of calls for his resignation. Pray for the Lord to establish peace in this troubled nation: political peace that will provide hope to the people, and spiritual peace that will provide eternal salvation. Ask the Lord to raise up leaders who will serve Guinea-Bissau in humility and integrity. Pray for an end to the ongoing cycle of power-struggles and coups. Invite God’s Kingdom to come to this nation, bringing righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

 

8月5日

不丹/南亞

 

逃往尼泊爾定居的不丹難民,如今被稱作聯合國全球最大的再殖民計畫。目前在尼泊爾已有超過32,000名不丹難民,被送往不同的西方國家。數以萬計的人仍留在尼泊爾的集中營裡,過去20年那裡已成為他們的家。禱告不丹人民的大規模的流散,使他們能在新家園中聽見福音的信息。求莊稼的主打發工人去服事在不丹、尼泊爾,和許多散佈在全球各地的不丹百姓,向他們宣揚這福音的好消息。禱告這國家的百姓能從佛教及其他假宗教中得自由,將他們的信心放在耶穌基督這位救主及生命的主身上。

 

BHUTAN, SOUTH ASIA

The resettlement of Bhutanese refugees who have fled to Nepal is now being called the largest UN resettlement program in the world. More than 32,000 Bhutan refugees have been sent out from Nepal to a variety of western nations. Tens of thousands remain in Nepal in camps that have been their home for almost 20 years. Pray for the diaspora of Bhutanese to be exposed to the Gospel message in their new homelands. Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send workers to minister to the Bhutanese in Bhutan and Nepal, as well as those scattered throughout the world, proclaiming to them the Good news. Pray for the people of this nation to be set free from Buddhism and other false religions and put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

沙烏地阿拉伯/阿拉伯半島

 

超過100名從一個西方拘留中心被釋放的沙烏地恐怖份子,在完成沙烏地阿拉伯的一個改過遷善計畫後,至少有25名已回到蓋達組織裡。這項改過遷善的計畫起始於2003及2006年之間一連串攻擊發生之後。儘管有20%的參與者故態復萌,沙烏地阿拉伯現正計畫五個恢復中心。禱告主在應付這些危險的好戰份子方面,給國家領袖有智慧及分辨力。求神向沙烏地政府官員、蓋達組織透過異夢、異象及個人的見證來顯明祂自己。禱告他們的心柔軟,並向福音回應,將他們的信心放在耶穌基督身上。邀請神的國臨到沙烏地阿拉伯如同行在天上。

 

SAUDI ARABIA, ARABIAN PENINSULA

Out of more than one hundred Saudi terrorists released from a western detention center and put through a rehabilitation program in Saudi Arabia, at least 25 have returned to al-Qaeda. The rehabilitation program was initiated after a series of attacks inside Saudi Arabia between 2003 and 2006. Despite having 20% of the participants “relapse,” Saudi Arabia is now planning five more rehabilitation facilities. Pray for the Lord to give the leaders of this nation wisdom and discernment in their handling of dangerous militants. Ask Him to reveal Himself to members of the Saudi government, as well as al-Qaeda, through dreams, visions, and personal testimonies. Pray for their hearts to be softened and for them to respond to the Gospel, putting their faith in Jesus Christ. Invite the Kingdom of God to come to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia as it is in heaven.

 

8月6日

幾內亞/西非

 

過去幾個月,在幾內亞50年來第一個自由選舉( 6月27日)的預備階段中,西方軍隊為了訓練幾內亞總統的隨扈進入該國,「以確保新選出來的幾內亞總統,會有專業、具有能力且公正的總統隨扈隨侍在側」。禱告這項策略能有效地使貪腐及操縱無法繼續毒害幾內亞政府。求主大能運行,興起以公義服務國家並敬畏神的領袖。禱告該國的信徒在這段期間,以極大的熱情及韌性為他們的國家代求。禱告權力能和平轉移。呼求主使福音能在幾內亞全地向每個族群、種族及每個人宣講。為靈魂的大豐收禱告。

 

GUINEA, WEST AFRICA

In the months leading up to this nation’s first free election in 50 years (June 27, 2010), western troops were brought in to train Guinea’s presidential guard. The goal was to “ensure that there is a professional, capable, and impartial presidential guard for the newly elected president of Guinea.” Pray for this strategy to effectively keep corruption and manipulation from continuing to contaminate the government of Guinea. Ask the Lord to work powerfully in raising up leaders who will serve this nation in righteousness and the fear of the Lord. Pray for the Believers in Guinea to intercede for their homeland with great passion and tenacity during this important period. Pray for a smooth transition of power. Cry out to the Lord for the Gospel to be proclaimed throughout Guinea, to every people, tribe, and tongue. Pray for a great harvest of souls.

 

泰國/東南亞

 

泰國政府在百姓以暴力對抗政府的示威抗議兩個月之後,造成30棟建築物被燒毀、88個人死亡,將近200個人受傷,而政府正試圖向前邁進。不過,經濟與政治氣氛仍然是一觸即發。泰國家在過去40年已歷經10個政變,2006年的政變仍然在被質疑和受挑戰的情況裡。為這個不安定的國家禱告,求主使用此刻的不確定及焦慮,將人們的心轉向唯一真實及可靠的根基:耶穌基督。禱告聖靈打開屬靈的瞎眼,看見以政治或是運用武力是不可能找到長久和平的事實。禱告和平的君王向泰國人民顯現,將他們的信心放在耶穌基督這位救主及生命之主身上。

 

THAILAND, SOUTHEAST ASIA

After two months of violent anti-government demonstrations resulted in the burning of more than 30 buildings, 88 deaths, and nearly 2000 wounded, the government of Thailand is attempting to move forward. However, the economy and the political atmosphere remain volatile. The nation has experienced 10 coups in the past forty years and the last coup (2006) is still being questioned and challenged. Pray for this very unstable nation. Ask the Lord to use this time of uncertainty and anxiety to turn hearts toward the only true and sure foundation: Jesus Christ. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in opening blind spiritual eyes to the reality that lasting peace cannot be found in politics or brought about by force. Pray for the Prince of Peace to be revealed to the Thai people and for multitudes to put their faith and hope in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

8月7日

尼日/西非

 

將近7百萬尼日人民正面臨食物短缺、飢餓,甚至是因農作欠收帶來的飢荒,以致有些人非法越過邊界進入奈及利亞尋找緩解之道。「許多來自尼日的婦女及孩童,正在尋找當地家庭成為避難所;也有報告傳出有婦女挨家挨戶乞求食物。」求主為人道救援組織開門,可以服事在尼日和奈及利亞中,那些因飢餓而受苦的百姓。祈求隨著這些食物及清潔用水等迫切的需要,有機會向他們說明福音。禱告主供應尼日百姓的需要,使他們在這些行動中看見祂的愛,接受主並向耶穌基督所給予的永生敞開。

 

NIGER, WEST AFRICA

With nearly 7 million people in Niger facing food shortages, hunger, and even starvation because of crop failures, some are choosing to illegally cross the border into Nigeria in search of relief. “Many women and children from Niger are seeking shelter with local families. There are also reports of women going from house to house begging for food.” Pray for the Lord to open doors for Christian humanitarian agencies to minister to the needs of the hungry and suffering in Niger and Nigeria. Ask for opportunities for the Gospel to be presented along with desperately needed food and clean water. Pray for the Lord to provide for the needs of the Nigeriens and enable them to see His love in these acts and be open to receiving the eternal life offered in Jesus Christ.

 

吉爾吉斯/中亞

 

種族暴力持續折磨這個國家,造成至少兩個區域宣布進入緊急狀態。「2010年6月10日,吉爾吉斯族群與烏茲別克族群於歐斯和加拉拉巴德爆發的衝突中,估計有2000名人士遭到殺害,並導致將近40萬名烏茲別克人民,跨進或聚集靠近他們的邊界。」求主介入這個危機,停止這個衝突並限制這些反對團體有進一步的暴力行動。為那些據傳在吉爾吉斯人槍下和刀下受到性侵的婦女禱告。懇求主恢復這個正在迅速瓦解中國家的次序。禱告吉爾吉斯和烏茲別克人仰望神的幫助、盼望及和平。求主保護在吉爾吉斯的基督徒,使用他們成為驅走黑暗的光。邀請神的國度降臨這個國家。

 

KYRGYZSTAN, CENTRAL ASIA

Ethnic violence continues to plague this nation with at least two regions having declared a state of emergency. “Clashes between ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbeks that began June 10 [2010] in Osh and Jalalabad have killed an estimated 2,000 people, and have led nearly 400,000 ethnic Uzbeks to cross into Uzbekistan or mass near the border.” Pray for the Lord to intervene in this crisis, stopping the conflict and restraining the opposing groups from further violence. Cry out for the Uzbek women who are reportedly being raped at gun and knifepoint by Kyrgyz gangs. Plead with the Lord to restore order to this quickly disintegrating nation. Pray for the Kyrgyz and Uzbeks to look to Jesus Christ for help, hope, and peace. Ask the Lord to protect our Brothers and Sisters in Kyrgyzstan and use them as His lights to drive out the darkness. Invite God’s Kingdom to come to this nation.

 

8月8日

伊朗/中東

 

伊朗政府在革命法庭上發現一名反抗軍領袖被控有79項罪名之後,將他加以處決。那些指控是有關他與西方國家及以色列中情局之間的連結。他也成立了一個好戰反抗政府的組織,被伊朗視之為一個恐怖份子團體。禱告政府的動機能更加明確—無論這是實際上對犯罪行為的一種懲罰,或是其他處置反對黨成員的一種藉口。求主在伊朗領袖群中,特別是總統阿馬尼加德及最高領袖阿里卡門內的心中運行。禱告當福音向每個族群宣揚時,一個極大的覺醒會臨到。求主賜下靈魂的大豐收,祂的國降臨,祂的旨意能行在伊朗。

 

IRAN, MIDDLE EAST

The government of Iran executed a rebel leader in June 2010 after a revolutionary court found him guilty of 79 charges. Among the charges was his connection to western and Israeli intelligence agencies. He also founded a militant anti-government organization that Iran considered a terrorist group. Pray for the motives of the government to be made clear – whether this was indeed a punishment for crimes, or yet another excuse to dispose of a member of the opposition. Ask the Lord to move among the leadership of Iran, especially in the hearts of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. Pray for a great awakening in this nation as the Gospel is proclaimed to every people group. Ask the Lord for a great harvest of souls and for His Kingdom to come, His will to be done in Iran.

 

布吉納法索/西非

 

隨著腦膜炎的擴散,該國正面臨食物短缺的問題。就像尼日及其他西非國家一樣,布吉納法索正經歷一個極大的乾旱使得農作物欠收。據估計大約有1千萬人正處於嚴重飢餓及營養失調的危險中。禱告這將是一個讓百姓轉向主並向祂呼求幫助的機會。求主使基督教救援團體被允許供應食物及清潔用水給這些需要的人,並用他們的行動及語言分享福音。為這個國家在自然及屬靈方面的重建禱告。求主降下醫治的雨水祝福此地,吸引許多該國的人民進入祂的國度。

 

BURKINA FASO, WEST AFRICA

With meningitis already spreading, the nation of Burkina Faso is now facing a food shortage. Like Niger and other West African nations, Burkina Faso has been experiencing a drought and resulting crop failures. An estimated 10 million people are in danger of severe hunger and malnutrition. Pray for the Lord to supply the needs of the people in Burkina Faso and throughout West Africa. Pray for this to be an occasion for them to turn to Him and cry out for help. Ask for Christian aid groups to be allowed to provide the food and clean water these people need and enabled to share the Gospel in both their actions and words. Pray for the restoration of this nation – physically and spiritually. Cry out for the Lord to send healing rain that will bless the land and draw many Burkinabes into His Kingdom.
