Pray for China – Guangdong Province

Pray for China – Guangdong Province (“Eastern Expanse”). Population: estimates range from 78 – 82 million (Han, 98%). Christianity: 1.4% (Protestant – 0.8%).

Guangdong’s major industries include agricultural (food) products, clothing, household appliances, and textiles.

Shenzhen, a special economic zone between Guangdong and Hong Kong, has grown from a population of 30,000 in 1980 to more than 3 million today.

“Father, as millions of migrant workers from China’s interior, more rural, provinces flood the eastern, more prosperous provinces, of which Guangdong is a leader, in search of employment, I pray that You will provide these men and women with physical safety and gainful employment as they seek to better provide for their families. I also pray that as these millions seek material and financial provision that You will use the believers and churches of Guangdong to reveal Yourself to them as the Provider of all of their spiritual needs, the greatest of which is salvation for the forgiveness of the sins through faith in Jesus Christ.”

******************************

Please read this article entitled “China’s Migrant Workers at Record High.” In it, a Chinese government report is referred to that estimates that there are 211 million migrant workers in China.
