Why devote a day of prayer to Hong Kong?

Canada and Canadians have deep ties with Hong Kong. We feel the pain and suffering and uncertainty many people in Hong Kong are experiencing now. The gospel calls us to grieve with those who grieve, to bear witness to the pain and needs of others, to show solidarity with and hospitality to the needy, and to lift up and attend to their spiritual needs.

Join with us in prayer for transformative peace and justice to touch the church, society, and people of Hong Kong. We pray for the prophetic witness of the Church in society. We pray for many in Hong Kong who struggle to understand what the future holds.

“But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.” (Psalms 9:18 NIV)

Why devote a day of prayer in Hong Kong?

Canada and the Canadian people have close ties to Hong Kong. We share the pain, suffering and uncertainty that many people in Hong Kong are currently experiencing. The gospel calls us to mourn with those who mourn, to bear witness to the pain and needs of others, to show solidarity and hospitality to the unfortunate, and to alleviate their spiritual needs.

Join us in praying for transformative peace and justice to touch the church, society, and people of Hong Kong. We pray that the Church will give prophetic witness in society. We also pray for the many people in Hong Kong who are struggling to understand what the future holds.
