12/16(Mon): Missions city
Scripture: “Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, … and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.” (Acts 13:1-3)
The Antioch church is composed of Jewish and Gentile believers and has a Jewish and Gentile culture. The first mission team consisted of Barnabas, Saul, and Mark. They were sent by the church and set out from Antioch to Cyprus. This was Paul’s first missionary journey to spread the gospel to the Gentiles. Antioch became a missionary-sending city due to the local church.
1. Hong Kong is a city where Chinese and Western cultures converge. With advanced education and an international perspective, many people can write two languages and speak three languages, namely Chinese and English, and Cantonese, Mandarin and English. Coupled with information circulation, it is easy to grasp the pulse of the world. Please pray for the church in Hong Kong to raise the awareness of the missions and care for the people who are unreached people overseas.
2. Hong Kong alone has more than 20 seminaries and Bible colleges. Pray for these institutions to strengthen mission education and missionary training. May God raise up more His workers to harvest the mission fields.
