The Unsettling World: The world situation is unsettling. While East Asia is continuously apprehensive about the North Korean issue, another squall is resurging in the Middle East on the status of Jerusalem. Yet, let us see to it that we are not troubled and alarmed, because such things must happen, as the Lord has already told us. Christ Jesus, the baby born for us more than 2000 years ago, will bring salvation, peace, justice and righteousness. The Lord who has […]

Prayer Request (2017.12)

In a Mess “My husband is not a Christian and our marriage is a mess. He is rarely at home now; neither would he tell me his whereabouts. I had a stomachache last mid-night and vomited badly. I called him to come home to care for me. He agreed. But when I texted him several more times, he said a complication arose and he dared not return home then. Without any specific explanation, I worried about him so much that […]

China News & Prayer (2017.12.25-31)

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the team of “Radio Counselling Corner” for organising the Couple Camp. I have learnt a lot of things which I was unaware of in the past through the event in a few days. I always thought that I was right and defended my own ideas. I did not truly accept and tolerate my husband and thought that I had done enough by taking on my role and responsibilities in the church. […]

The One Who was In Need

Frailness “I am getting frail these days: lack of strength even after prayers and bible reading; feeble to do what I should have done. I couldn’t concentrate on my work or to run my schedule. I feel helpless and frustrated. Moreover, my girlfriend and I are not getting along very well recently. When she was unhappy, my cheering up could only drive her even mad and sad in the end. Then we have ‘cold war’, showing indifferent to each other. […]

Serious Traffic Accident “My elder sister’s family encountered a serious traffic accident on October 1. Her four family members and my uncle’s three family members were injured. My uncle and a child died at the scene. Other victims had been admitted to ICU in Ji’an, Jiangxi for a long period. My sister’s two children were aged six and three respectively. The former had undergone three surgical operations after the accident. My sister is still lying in ICU and cannot move. […]

Sleeping Disorder “I had suffered from sleeping disorder for many years. Sleeping pills didn’t help much, and I was terribly worn out in the end. During the Christmas before last, I was stunningly attracted by the sacred environment of the church that I inadvertently popped in. I have thereafter attended their Sunday service unremittingly despite my family’s disagreement. Last year, I joined a bible study course held by a seminary chapel, and I met a zealous sister who forwarded to […]

In Need of Care “I am a fresh college graduate and am taking my second attempt to National Post-Graduate Entrance Examination. I became a Christian a year ago and after realizing God’s will on me, I have no fear to step into the job market now. Loneliness is what I feel these days. A bit lost too as I have no companion. The former classmates around me are yet comfortable for me to confide in them. I therefore kept up […]

Feeling Weary “My mother and I have had intense emotions twice recently. She appears to be calmer superficially at present, but obviously she has been aging. I really hope that we will have more maturity because such relationship is really too hard and too regretful. I feel very weary. The WeChat account for chatting with sisters and brothers in Christ has not been used for a long time. I have just reviewed my past friend circles. Surprisingly I noticed that […]

China News & Prayer (2017.11.16-23)

Being Weak and Sad “I was baptized in 2004. By God’s grace He let me serve as a leader of hymn singing at church. However, I felt terribly weak and vulnerable these few months. I was later diagnosed with subacute thyroiditis. I got flu in the course of treatment, then bronchitis. No improvement even I got the dripping for days though, letting my body and soul both badly wounded. I am in extreme pain and disappointment. Please pray for my […]
