NON-STOP PRAYER MOVEMENT IN CHINA
Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, thousands of Christians are meeting in a corner of northeast China for an unprecedented prayer movement.
What started as a small gathering six years ago has become a nationwide prayer initiative uniting hundreds of Chinese churches. Television cameras have never been allowed to film the prayer services, but cbn news was granted exclusive access.
For years, the chinese government tried to snuff out Christianity. In the late 1940s, some 500,000 Chinese Christians were killed because of their faith. Now decades later in what is officially still an atheist nation, Christianity is the fastest growing religion.
A vision for prayer
“We had a dream that someday we would build a church focused on prayer for china and the world,” prayer leader Ha Bining said.
“This is the core of Christianity,” Bining said. “We are all on our knees, lifting our hands and praying that the Gospel will continue to spread around the world and also here in China.”
