Saturday, (Feb 1) – Pray for the World: In China, sometimes members of the Communist Party are caught attending church worship services, and will be dismissed from their jobs.

Pray that, in the coming 12 months, many more people in China, where about 150 million are Christians, will be called out of darkness into His wonderful light.
