Hong Kong Christians

The Christian church in Hong Kong for these many years since the beginning of British rule has been a strong voice in the city. Many of the protestors in Hong Kong came from the Christian church and are now being persecuted actively for their faith in addition to their political views.

Let us pray for them and support them in any way possible. As yet another great piece of Christianity falls under a repressive regime let us all remember that the freedom to worship as you would like is fundamental to democracy not something that’s optional…not something that can be taken away and still have a democracy but something that once gone undermines the entire system. As the Communist Party in China tightens it’s grip on this once great city. Let us pray, but be vigilant…peace is our goal as Christians, however our ability to worship and to teach our faith has eternal consequences. The Romans worked to beat God…let’s make sure we are on His side and fighting the good fight.

I am driven ever more to the foundations of my faith in these unsure times. To my Brothers and Sisters in Hong Kong and all those being martyred around the globe, I pray for you daily.

About Hiram

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
