At the beginning of this new year, let us be unceasing in our prayers for our brothers and sisters in China as the apostle Paul prayed for the Ephesians:
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:16-23 ESV
May this be a year in which we all increasingly know the hope to which we are called, the riches of his glorious inheritance, and the immeasurable greatness of his power in each of our lives.
Happy New Year from the ChinaSource team!
