China leadership change

The once in a decade change in power in China is taking place with the President and Premier to be replaced. It is expected that Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang will take over the presidency and premiership in March 2013. Open Doors China director Xiao Yun expects that churches all over China, but especially around 3000 churches in Beijing will have to lay low during the conference. It is expected that the leadership change will not make any difference for Christians. Opendoors asks that you pray:

-giving thanks for the amazing growth of the church in China.

-for the new political leaders that they will govern with wisdom.

-for wisdom for Open Doors staff as they determine how to support churches in minority areas such as Tibet and Xinjiang

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority…” 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (TNIV)
