This Weeks Prayer Points
Taiwan/China/Hong Kong: remember the people of Taiwan at this tense time and especially President Tsai Ing Wen. Pray for the Christians. If China took over the running of the island, there would possibly be persecution as there is in China and now, probably in Hong Kong. Pray for the Lord's will to be done in the current situation and for a de-escalation in tensions. If China took over the running of Taiwan, there would be consequences for islands such as the Philippines, and maybe even as far off as Hawaii. Ask for the United States to be given wisdom.
Pakistan: Pray for the people of Baluchistan where there has been flooding, and for all other places affected by changing weather
Panama: The running of the canal which is vital for the Panamanians' economy and also their supply of drinking water, has been affected by less than usual rain. Pray for them and for the spread of the gospel there. Christians have opportunities of meeting with many different nations passing through.
Ukraine/Russia: There have been continued air strikes in some towns, causing more loss of life. Pray about the safety of the nuclear plant in Zaporizhzhia, and also the people in Crimea which President Zelenzsky would still like to see back under Ukrainian control. This week there were some explosions near a town used a lot by Russian holiday makers. It is not certain what caused these.
Israel/Palestine: Pray for peace in the West Bank, Israel and Gaza after some jihadi elements were attacked by Israel, worried about possible conflict.
Pray for all who have been bereaved in the latest fighting.
Belgium: Give thanks for the Prices' safe return to Brussels after their work in the U.S. and Canada, and good family time in Switzerland.

Pray that the family get some time out together the week of 21st August.
U.K: Give thanks for all the outreach that went on during the Commonwealth Games and the many Christian conferences still on-going.
