Pray For China

Earlier this week I started posting prayer requests for China on my Facebook page. My desire is to share basic facts, information, and prayer requests about and for China.

Because I would like for as many people as possible to learn more about China and to pray for her and her people, I am going to post these prayer requests on my tangiblethoughts blog as I write them.

Today, I am going to begin by sharing the four requests I have written thus far. Please check back regularly for prayer notes and requests as I write and post them.

Please pray that the people of the great country of China will come to know the LORD as their Savior and God through personal faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
