50 Ways to #prayforhongkong

No wordy caption today. I’ve tried writing something more energetic, more battle-ready but the truth is I’m weary. My heart has been at PolyU all day, a place I used to visit frequently as I managed a number of their academic journals. My heart is also at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where my friend A works, as they were affected by tear gas today. But rather than bask in the weariness, I’m getting up to pray. I hope you will join me.



Read anything about the protests and you can probably think of things to pray for. But sometimes, at least for me, the situation can seem so huge I’m at a loss for words. Exactly where to start and what to say … ? So if it’s helpful, please see below for 50 ideas on how to pray for Hong Kong. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, just things that came to mind as I was praying earlier. And it’s not descriptive either, more just topics / areas … may God lead you and give you ideas. Please feel free to add your own prayer topic below / message me so I can join you too.
