Heavenly Father, we pray for the Uighur Muslim minority in China. It is hard to comprehend that people groups would still be targeted and confined to internment camps. Yet, sin still thrives in the world. Sin leads to prejudice, fear and hostility. Sin leads nation to rise against nation and people group to rise against people group. We pray against this. We pray that we would guard our own hearts from such sin. Specifically regarding the Uighurs, we pray for the truth to come out. We pray that Amnesty International’s report about Uighur children being taken from their parents and sent to state-run orphanages would cause the world to take a good look at what is happening. We pray for separated families to find the help they need, and that their cries would not fall on deaf ears. We pray for special measures of comfort for the children in these orphanages, Lord. Please meet with them there. Lord God, we pray for religious freedom in China. Amen.
