“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone –
for kings and all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

Communist Party Congress in China
From inside China a prayer leader- friend writes: "The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China will be the next major Communist Party Congress in China. It is scheduled to begin on November 8, 2012 in Beijing, China, at the Great Hall of the People.
Due to term and age limit restrictions, seven of the nine members of the most important CCP Central Politburo Standing Committee will be retiring. This includes current Paramount Leader Hu Jintao, who will step down as the powerful party's General Secretary. The Congress will elect the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and will likely elect currently touted successors into power, who will lead China for the next ten years. Because the communist Party is the ruling party in China, so the importance of this congress for us is just like the U.S election for America. We would like to kindly invite you to please stand with us at this critical moment."
Let's agree in prayer with our Chinese brothers and sisters for good new leaders that will take China forward into its destiny for God's kingdom
Pray that increasing political and religious freedom will be the result of this important leadership transition.
