北緯10/40之窗禱告焦點

2010年9月20-26日

Weekly Prayer Points- September 20 -26, 2010

 

9月20日

汶萊/東南亞

 

一位研究伊斯蘭教的講師最近說明,汶萊「比起其他的國家,在恐怖份子人員招募及活動上較難防備,」「無論如何我們應該保持警戒。」因為汶萊政府密切監測國內情報訊息溝通的狀況,使得無論好壞的想法都被抑制。「這可能已促使汶萊免於激進化。」禱告汶萊政府在監視及對抗恐怖主義的同時,能找到一個允許宗教自由及表達的方式。當信徒面對信仰中極大的挑戰時,求主剛強並鼓勵他們。求主賜給他們膽量使福音傳遍這國家的每個角落。當百姓聽見耶穌基督的真理時,懇求神使靈魂的大豐收臨到,使他們從伊斯蘭教的謊言中得自由。邀請神的國降臨汶萊,帶來公義、和平及聖靈中的喜樂。

 

BRUNEI, SOUTHEAST ASIA

Brunei is “less vulnerable when it comes to terrorist recruitment and activities compared to other countries,” an Islamic studies lecturer stated recently, “however it should remain vigilant.” Because the government of Brunei closely monitors communication inside the nation, both good and bad ideas are suppressed. “This has probably helped stop the radicalization of Brunei.” Pray for the government of Brunei to seek a way to allow for freedom of religion and expression, while at the same time guarding against terrorism. Ask the Lord to strengthen and encourage Believers as they face great challenges to their faith. Pray for Him to give them boldness and for the Gospel to reach every part of the nation. Plead for a great harvest of souls as the people hear the Truth of Jesus Christ and are set free from the lies of Islam. Invite the Kingdom of God to come to Brunei, bringing righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

 

黎巴嫩/中東

 

一名伊斯蘭教真主黨恐怖份子組織的顧問,在2010年7月上旬過世。據傳他對恐怖主義和極端主義有很長時間的了解,並有一大批的追隨者和廣大的影響力。他被西方政府認為是一個「特定的恐怖份子」,支持伊朗的伊斯蘭教革命運動,以及由真主黨發動對以色列的自殺炸彈攻擊。禱告這個由邪惡勢力所驅使的極端份子留給世人的東西很快被遺忘,並不影響新一個世代的年輕人。求主在黎巴嫩興起敬畏祂和維護和平與正直的領袖。禱告黎巴嫩的基督徒忠心地分享福音,向身邊的人顯明神的愛。求主剛強他們能祝福他們的敵人,為那些錯待他們的人禱告。禱告黎巴嫩有許多人從伊斯蘭教中得自由,將他們的信心放在耶穌基督這位救主及生命之主的身上。

 

LEBANON, MIDDLE EAST

One of the Islamic advisers for terrorist group, Hezbollah, died in early July 2010. He reportedly had a large following, a wide influence, and a “long history of terrorism and extremism.” He was considered a “specially designated terrorist” by western governments and supported both the Islamic Revolution in Iran and the suicide bombings carried out against Israel by Hezbollah. Pray that the legacy of this demonically-inspired extremist will be quickly forgotten and not impact a new generation of young people. Petition the Lord to raise up leaders in Lebanon who fear Him and will stand up for peace and integrity. Pray for Believers in Lebanon to faithfully share the Gospel and demonstrate God’s love for the people around them. Ask Him to empower them to bless their enemies and pray for those who mistreat them. Pray for multitudes in Lebanon to be set free from Islam and put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

9月21日

卡達/阿拉伯半島

 

2006年以巴戰爭期間,遭受真主黨飛彈攻擊的受害者,已經提出對卡達的阿拉伯半島電視的訴訟,聲稱該電視網「刻意提供飛彈侵襲以色列境內各個地方的即時性新聞」。原告說,這助長了該恐怖份子組織「更準確地將他們的飛彈瞄準平民百姓人口集中之地」。禱告卡達政府有智慧應付這個問題,盡他們一切力量來阻止而不是支持真主黨。求主揭露並驅散這機構的成員,切斷他們的資金和武器供應,擊敗他們想在中東以暴力方式宣洩並啟動戰爭的意圖。禱告卡達的人看見這個及其他極端份子團體的破壞性,轉離伊斯蘭教的謊言,擁抱耶穌基督的真理。懇求主使福音在卡達被傳揚。禱告信徒放膽分享他們的信仰,許多卡達人將他們的信任放在耶穌這位救主及生命之主的身上。

 

QATAR, ARABIAN PENINSULA

Victims of Hezbollah rocket attacks during the Lebanese-Israeli War of 2006 have filed suit against Qatar’s Al-Jazeera television, claiming the network “intentionally provided real-time coverage of the locations of the missile strikes inside Israel.” The plaintiffs say this helped the terrorist group “more accurately aim their missiles at civilian population centers.” Pray for the government of Qatar to use wisdom in dealing with this issue and do everything in their power to hinder rather than support Hezbollah. Ask the Lord to expose and scatter members of this organization, cut off their funding and arms supply, and defeat their attempts to unleash violence and war in the Middle East. Pray for the people of Qatar to see the destructiveness of this and other extremist groups, turn away from the lies of Islam, and embrace the Truth of Jesus Christ. Petition the Lord to make the Gospel known in Qatar. Pray for Believers to boldly share their faith and for multitudes of Qataris to put their trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord.

 

土庫曼/中亞

 

西方政府已經協助土庫曼盡力守護與伊朗和阿富汗的邊界來對抗恐怖份子。這國家過去飽受被洗錢及供應恐怖主義資金所苦,但現今漸漸改善她的國防安全來抵抗這些活動。禱告對於停止在土庫曼的塔利班及蓋達成員流動,及終止資助他們機構資金方面的努力會成功。懇求主給政府智慧及分辨力來對抗恐怖主義。為土庫曼的人民代禱,他們當中有許多是穆斯林。禱告福音傳遍這個區域,那些被伊斯蘭教捆綁的得著自由。求主在土庫曼賜下靈魂的大豐收,並傳遍整個中亞。

TURKMENISTAN, CENTRAL ASIA

Western governments have been assisting Turkmenistan in its efforts to guard its borders with Iran and Afghanistan against terrorists. The nation has been plagued by money-laundering and terrorism financing in the past, but is slowly improving its security to counteract these activities. Pray for these efforts to be successful in stopping the flow of Taliban and al-Qaeda members in Turkmenistan, as well as funding for their organizations. Plead with the Lord to give the government wisdom and discernment in fighting terrorism. Intercede on behalf of the people of Turkmenistan, many of whom are Muslim. Pray for the Gospel to be proclaimed throughout this region and for those held captive by Islam to be set free. Ask for a great harvest of souls in Turkmenistan that will spread throughout Central Asia.

 

9月22日

衣索匹亞/東非

 

衣索匹亞政府加入國際社會,譴責2010年7月伊斯蘭青年叛軍恐怖份子,在烏干達的坎帕拉發動攻擊。衣索匹亞人據傳也在炸彈受害者的行列中,有超過70人不幸罹難。衣索匹亞的官員承諾「會供給烏干達政府及人民在反恐活動上必要的支援」。為向這一個邪惡行動有堅決的回應讚美神。感謝神攪動衣索匹亞的領袖對升高的威脅採取行動。禱告伊斯蘭青年叛軍團體被擊潰—他們的招募沒有果效、成員背叛逃跑,資金枯竭,他們企圖以暴力掌控及支配東非的作法失敗。求主奪取這個恐怖份子團體主要成員的心,並釋放那些被迫參加這組織的人(特別是孩童)。禱告衣索匹亞百姓看見伊斯蘭極端主義份子破壞的本性,並拒絕成為其中的一份子。邀請聖靈臨到這國家,甦醒信徒並吸引失喪者和未得之民,進入與耶穌基督這位救主與生命之主的關係中。

 

ETHIOPIA, EAST AFRICA

The government of Ethiopia joined the international community in condemning the July 2010 al-Shabaab terrorist attack on Kampala, Uganda. Ethiopians were reportedly among the victims of the bombing that killed more than 70 people. Officials in Ethiopia promised to “provide the necessary support to the government and people of Uganda in their activities to fight against terrorism.” Praise the Lord for this strong response to an evil act. Thank Him for stirring the leaders of Ethiopia to take action against this rising threat. Pray for the defeat of al-Shabaab – for their recruiting to be ineffective, for members to defect, for funding to dry up, and for their attempts to control and dominate East Africa through violence to fail. Ask the Lord to capture the hearts of key members of this terrorist group and set free those who have been forced to enlist in the organization (especially children). Pray for the people of Ethiopia to see the destructive nature of extremist Islam and refuse to be part of it. Invite the Holy Spirit to come to this nation, reviving Believers and drawing the lost and unreached into relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

緬甸/東南亞

 

當緬甸愈來愈接近20年來首次的全國選舉時,獨裁將軍丹瑞正採取步驟來維持掌控。所有在他軍權統治下的內閣官員,都被迫從軍中辭職,當他們還在位置上時,有些人對這樣的異動不滿意。一個緬甸新聞社報告說,「丹瑞正面臨一個跟隨者的反叛,且這個不滿的暗示正逐漸擴大中。」求主在緬甸興起願以誠實正直服務人民的領袖。求祂預備那些敬畏祂名的男女來尋求這個國家的利益,遠超過自己的利益。禱告福音在緬甸被宣揚,那些聽見的人都要回應,將他們的信任放在耶穌基督這位救主與生命之主身上。邀請神的國度臨到這國家如同在天上。

 

MYANMAR (BURMA), SOUTHEAST ASIA

As Myanmar approaches its first general election in 20 years, dictator General Than Shwe is taking steps to maintain control. All of the cabinet members in his military regime were forced to resign from the Army. While they have retained their positions, some are not pleased with this move. One Burmese news agency reports that “Shwe is facing a mutiny among his subordinates. There are growing signs of discontent.” Pray for the Lord to raise up leaders in Myanmar who will serve the people with integrity and honesty. Ask Him to provide men and women who fear His name and will seek the good of the nation, rather than their own good. Pray for this uncertain time to be an opportunity for hearts and minds to be turned toward eternity. Pray for the Gospel to be proclaimed in Myanmar and for those who hear it to respond, placing their trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Invite God’s Kingdom to come to this nation, as it is in heaven.

 

9月23日

查德/中非

 

儘管有逮捕他的拘捕令,蘇丹籍獨裁者歐馬阿布夏仍在2010年7月訪問查德。國際罪犯法庭( ICC)發出這個拘捕令,並已就戰爭罪犯(包括搶奪、強姦和折磨)和種族屠殺起訴阿布夏,要求查德政府逮捕他。身為國際法庭的一員,ICC說,查德有義務採取這項行動。然而,查德的總統德比卻迎接阿布夏的座機,還親切的歡迎他。為總統德比及查德政府了解他們在這議題上的責任來禱告,使他們不再支持阿布夏暴力及不道德的罪行。求主在這兩國興起敬畏神,願以正直清廉服務國家的領袖。禱告貪腐、勾結及壓制從這些政府中被根除。懇求主打開查德人的眼睛看見公義被曲解—也向這一位真實的審判官及他為饒恕及救贖所做出的奉獻。禱告福音能觸摸查德的每個族群和村落,帶來靈魂的大豐收。

 

CHAD, CENTRAL AFRICA

Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir visited Chad in July 2010, despite having a warrant out for his arrest. The International Criminal Court (ICC), which issued the warrant and has accused al-Bashir of war crimes (including rape and torture) and genocide, demanded that the government of Chad arrest him. As a member of the global court, Chad is obligated to take this action, the ICC said. However, Chadian President Idriss Deby met al-Bashir’s plane and welcomed him warmly. Pray for President Deby and the government of Chad to realize their responsibility in this issue and no longer support al-Bashir’s violent and immoral crimes. Ask the Lord to raise up leaders in both nations who will serve with integrity and in the fear of the Lord. Pray for corruption, collusion, and oppression to be rooted out of these governments. Petition the Lord to open the eyes of the people of Chad to this travesty of justice – and also open their eyes to the one true Judge and His offer of forgiveness and salvation. Pray for the Gospel to reach every people group and village in Chad, and result in a tremendous harvest of souls.

 

阿爾及利亞/北非

伊斯蘭馬格里布組織(AQIM)被認為是安置一枚家庭製炸彈引發一起爆炸事件的主謀,於2010年7月在阿爾及利亞殺害了4名人士。六月下旬,有5名人士在靠近阿爾及利亞的特貝沙城市,因另一樁攻擊受傷,而這事故是由極端份子的持槍歹徒所為。為AQIM特定人士在此區域的藏匿處、訓練及運作被曝露和擊潰禱告。求主給阿爾及利亞政府智慧、分辨力及果斷力來發現這些恐怖份子及殲滅他們。禱告神在這些被蒙蔽的人心中運行,釋放他們從伊斯蘭極端份子的謊言中得自由,帶領他們進入與耶穌基督這位救主與生命之主的關係中。為一個更大的聖靈澆灌在阿爾及利亞禱告—為屬靈覺醒目前正在加速發生並滿溢到附近的鄰國及族群且橫掃北非禱告。求神的國臨到阿爾及利亞。

 

ALGERIA, NORTH AFRICA

An explosion thought to be caused by a home-made bomb planted by al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) killed four people in Algeria in July 2010. In late June, five people were wounded by another attack near the Algerian city of Tebessa, this time by extremist gunmen. Pray for the AQIM elements hiding, training, and operating in this region to be flushed out and defeated. Ask the Lord to give the government of Algeria wisdom, discernment, and determination in finding these terrorists and eliminating them. Pray for the Lord to move in the hearts of these deceived men, setting them free from the lies of extremist Islam and leading them into relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Intercede for an even greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Algeria – for the awakening that is currently taking place to grow and spill over into the surrounding nations and people groups, and sweep across North Africa. Pray for the Kingdom of God to come to Algeria.

 

9月24日

利比亞/北非

 

2010年6月,一個人權觀察團體發佈一項報告,利比亞人權濫用的情形十分猖獗。這份報告說,儘管該國政府盡力改善他們在國際舞臺上的國家形象,「利比亞這幾十年來遭受同樣的人權問題之苦…軍事安全力量無所不在,並擁有全部的勢力。」禱告一個屬靈的革命在利比亞發生。求主向領袖(特別是格達費)及這穆斯林國家的每個族群顯明祂自己。禱告他們有機會聽見福音,從伊斯蘭的捆綁中得自由,將他們的信心放在耶穌基督這位救主及生命之主的身上。

LIBYA, NORTH AFRICA

A human rights monitoring group issued a report in June 2010 stating that human rights abuses in Libya are rampant. Despite efforts by the government to improve the nation’s image on the global stage, the report says, “human rights in Libya are suffering from the same problem that has persisted for decades… the omnipresence and the total power that security forces have.” Pray for a spiritual revolution in Libya. Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to leaders (especially Muammar al-Qadhafi) and to every people group in this Muslim nation. Pray for them to have the opportunity to hear the Gospel, be set free from the bondage of Islam and put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

馬來西亞/東南亞

 

2010年7月,馬來西亞首席檢察官誓言要「抑制恐怖份子的資金支援活動,根除所有形式洗錢氾濫的情形。」提到國際會議在財經犯罪及恐怖主義資金支援的討論,首席檢查官表明馬來西亞的立法與其他國家等同,並且他希望看見這些法律的影響範圍可以延伸。為馬來西亞政府採取行動讚美神。為這些法律及他們在恐怖主義方面的努力感謝神。禱告他們會成功,斷絕對極端主義團體資金的支援。禱告恐怖份子組織的招募行動失敗,並且找不到地方訓練。求主澆灌祂的靈在馬來西亞,從仇敵的恐怖主義及伊斯蘭,還有他們不需要一位救主的謊言中釋放百姓自由。禱告福音在這地被宣揚,許多人來信靠耶穌基督。

MALAYSIA, SOUTHEAST ASIA

In July 2010, the attorney-general of Malaysia vowed to “curb terrorist financing activities and eradicate all forms of money laundering abuses.” Addressing the International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing, the AG stated that legislation in Malaysia is on par with other nations and that he hopes to see the scope of these laws extended. Praise the Lord for the actions being taken by the government of Malaysia. Give thanks to Him for these laws and their effect on terrorism. Pray for them to be successful and for funding to extremist groups to be cut off. Pray for recruiting to fail and for terrorist organizations to find no place to train. Ask the Lord to pour out His Spirit on Malaysia, freeing the people from the terrorism of the enemy, the lies of Islam, and the deception that they do not need a Savior. Pray for the Gospel to be proclaimed throughout this nation and for multitudes to come to faith in Jesus Christ.

9月25日

阿曼/阿拉伯半島

 

一項新的報告指出,阿曼政府可能被要求共同協助使伊朗打消使用核武的念頭。這項計畫是呼籲波斯灣國家,例如:沙烏地阿拉伯、阿拉伯聯合大公國、阿曼一同加入軍事力量,並說服伊朗不要發動大規模毀滅性武器。然而,這份報告說這項計畫可能會失敗,因為這些國家對於西方軍事力量的參與「缺乏充分的防禦合作、缺乏互相信任及抱持拖延性的懷疑」。禱告主賜給阿曼領袖在對付伊朗及中東其他安全議題方面智慧。求神抑制那些想要偷竊、殺害及毀壞的邪惡勢力。禱告戰爭可被避免—政治及屬靈的和平—會臨到阿拉伯半島。懇求主使阿曼百姓從伊斯蘭的捆綁得釋放,帶領他們找到唯有在神獨生子耶穌基督裡才有的自由。為神國度臨到阿曼呼求主。

 

OMAN, ARABIAN PENINSULA

The government of Oman may be called upon to help in a cooperative effort to deter Iran from using nuclear weapons, a new report says. The plan calls for Gulf nations, such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Oman to join forces and convince Iran not to launch weapons of mass destruction. However, the report states, the plan may fail because these nations “come up short due to inadequate defense cooperation, a lack of trust with each other, and lingering doubts” about the involvement of western forces. Pray for the Lord to give leaders in Oman wisdom in dealing with Iran and other security issues in the Middle East. Ask Him to restrain the forces that desire to steal, kill, and destroy. Pray for war to be averted and for peace – both political and spiritual – to come to the Arabian Peninsula. Petition the Lord to release the people of Oman from the bondage of Islam and introduce them to the freedom found only in His Son, Jesus Christ. Cry out for God’s Kingdom to come to Oman.

 

哈薩克/中亞

 

一位來自哈薩克的外交使節,最近參與在聽取印度總統帕蒂爾討論恐怖主義威脅的行列中。她說,「對抗恐怖主義需要國際社會一個堅定的承諾及委身,」「集體並果斷地一起行動。」禱告哈薩克政府會留意這個呼籲。求主根除國家的貪腐,並興起想要服務人民並願獻身保護他們安全的領袖。禱告恐怖主義的威脅被神使用,讓許多人的心轉向安全與安穩的唯一可靠的來源:主耶穌基督。為哈薩克人民呼求。禱告他們以基督為他們生命的根基。求主在這個國家賜下一個靈魂的大豐收。

 

KAZAKHSTAN, CENTRAL ASIA

An envoy from Kazakhstan was among those who gathered recently to hear India’s President Pratibha Patil discuss the threat of terrorism. “Fighting terrorism requires a firm commitment by the international community,” Patil said, “to act collectively and decisively.” Pray for this call to be heeded by the Kazakh government. Ask the Lord to rid the nation of corruption and raise up leaders who desire to serve the people and are dedicated to keeping them safe. Pray for the threat of terrorism to be used by the Lord to turn many hearts toward the only sure source of safety and stability: the Lord Jesus Christ. Cry out for the Kazakh people. Pray for them to make Christ their foundation. Ask the Lord for a great harvest of souls in this nation.

 

9月26日

突尼西亞/北非

 

最近在法國,穿戴伊斯蘭罩袍(全面紗)是被禁止的,而這在突尼西亞(被認為是一個「現代化的」穆斯林國家)已經被禁止幾十年。理由是為了保障婦女的權利。它也被指出,可蘭經上並沒有提到要穿著罩袍,卻成為沙烏地阿拉伯國家強制性的一種傳統作法。禱告突尼西亞持續維護婦女權利,並持續對抗伊斯蘭極端份子興起的狀態。為穆斯林的自由懇求主,特別是那些在突尼西亞的穆斯林。求神甦醒他們,打開他們的瞎眼看見伊斯蘭的謊言和耶穌基督的真理。禱告神的國度臨到突尼西亞。

 

TUNISIA, NORTH AFRICA

The wearing of the Islamic burqa (full veil), recently banned in France, has been banned for decades in Tunisia (considered a “moderate” Muslim nation). The stated reason for this is the protection of women’s rights. It has also been pointed out that the burqa is not mentioned in the Qur’an, but is a tradition instituted by Saudi Arabia. Pray for the government of Tunisia to continue to stand up for women’s rights and also continue to stand against the rise of extremist Islam. Plead with the Lord for the freedom of all Muslims, but especially those in Tunisia. Ask Him to awaken them and open their blind eyes to see both the lies of Islam and the Truth of Jesus Christ. Pray for the Kingdom of God to come to Tunisia.

 

柬埔寨/東南亞

 

2010年7月,一個西方國家說,在持續對抗恐怖主義方面,他們「很滿意柬埔寨的合作」。柬埔寨和其他的國家同意在未來共同合作來維持安全,並停止好戰份子團體在東南亞的運作。感謝主使該國在委身於對抗恐怖主義方面的意願逐漸增加。禱告這些努力是有果效的,也為全球的伊斯蘭教聖戰劃下休止符。為柬埔寨及百姓的安全禱告。懇求主協助政府在對抗極端份子及與其他國家合作所做的承諾是有效的。禱告在這個區域活動的恐怖份子團體被擊敗,他們的成員很快被逮捕進行偵查。求主向柬埔寨人民顯明他們真實永遠的安全來源是主耶穌基督。邀請聖靈運行在柬埔寨這個國家,使福音被傳揚,吸引更多的人進入與基督的關係中。

 

CAMBODIA, SOUTHEAST ASIA

In July 2010, a western nation said it was “pleased with Cambodian cooperation” in the ongoing fight against terrorism. Both Cambodia and the other nation agreed to work together in the future to maintain security and stop militant groups operating in Southeast Asia. Thank the Lord for the growing commitment to the fight on terrorism. Pray for these efforts to be effective and bring an end to the global jihad. Pray for the safety of Cambodia and its people. Petition the Lord to help the government make good on its promise to combat extremists and cooperate with other nations. Pray for the terrorist groups operating in the region to be defeated, their members arrested and swiftly prosecuted. Ask the Lord to reveal to the people of Cambodia their true source of eternal security: the Lord Jesus Christ. Invite the Holy Spirit to move in Cambodia, making the Gospel known and drawing multitudes into relationship with Christ.
