“O world, the LORD has shown you what is good. What does He want from you? If only you would do justice, and be merciful, and walk in humility with your God.” (Micah 6:7-8)
O righteous Abba Father God, because we are called to walk with You in righteousness and love, we cannot ignore the tragic events of June 4, 1989, in Beijing, which shocked the world. Thousands of young students and people fell under the guns of the Chinese Communist regime in that tragedy. Their blood streams converged into rivers, sobbing and lamenting like tears. When will Thou seek to redress their grievances? For Thou hast said, “Whosoever sheddeth the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed: for God created man in his own image.” (Genesis 9:6)
Almighty Abba Father God, may You raise up in the land of China churches that are faithful to You, and give them strong and loving hearts to walk with You and boldly preach Your gospel. Father, through the memory of June 4 in the church, may you make the nation realize that the lawless and evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party comes from the communist ghost of the Antichrist.
The June 4 tragedy revealed the brutality of the totalitarian rule of man on the one hand, and the cowardice, numbness, and internal strife of the world on the other. There is no way out of the struggle between man and man, from violence to violence. Father, the end of man is the beginning of God. May You make them see Your righteousness and holiness in the sin of man, Your mercy and love in the suffering of man, and Your hope in eternity in the despair of man. Only by confessing their sins and repenting, and firmly abandoning the materialistic atheism propagated by the Chinese Communists, can the nation be reunited with You in Christ, for Jesus Christ is the only salvation.
O Father God, who keeps the covenant, we finally ask you to have mercy on the weakness of the church, and to forgive us for our sins of being too cowardly to speak out for the truth with strength and courage. Some of us, as saved Christians, even consecrated pastors and preachers, because of our biased theological position, confine ourselves to the kingdom of self-righteousness where we are indifferent to the sufferings and sins of the world; some are too timid and fearful to “fight against sin” in doing righteousness, let alone “resist to the point of bloodshed. (Hebrews 12:4), and often show their deficiency in good mercy, not even daring to express their concern and offer prayers to the members of the prison.
Father, give us a brave heart to put on the full armor you have given us and fight the good fight for you! In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!"
