Welcome to the 21 Days Buddhist World Prayer Guide “Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fuelled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder.” Romans 12:11-12 MSG Version
This first century admonition from the Apostle Paul could just as easily have been written in 2022. The lingering chaos from the pandemic, war in Ukraine, persecution of Jesus followers in much of the world, economic recession; it is easy to just throw up our hands and ask, “what can one person do?”
Paul gives us the answer. Stay focused on the Word of God, expectant that He will respond, and pray all the harder.
With this guide we invite you to pray specifically that God will become known to the one billion people across the globe who are at least nominally Buddhist. Each day, beginning January 2, 2023, you will learn something about Buddhist practice and influence in a different place.
A special focus for this year is the country of China. The guide culminates on January 22, Chinese New Year. We profile eight of China’s largest cities, and a specific people group within that city to pray for.
The Buddhist World Prayer Guide is being translated into eight languages and distributed through more than 1000 prayer networks worldwide. You will be participating with more than 2 million Jesus followers in intercession for our Buddhist neighbours. https://www.110cities.com/buddhistprayerguide/
We welcome you to join with us, to remain “cheerfully expectant,” and to “pray all the harder.”
Jesus Is Lord!
This prayer guide is an invitation to awakening “Jesus told them, ‘Roll away the stone.’ Then Martha said, ‘But Lord, it’s been four days since he died—by now his body is already decomposing.’ Jesus looked at her and said, ‘Didn’t I tell you that if you will believe in me, you will see God unveil his power?’” John 11:39–40
Use these resources to help pray specifically each day.
