Isaiah 以賽亞書 60 : 1 -3
興起，發光！因為你的光已經來到！ 耶和華的榮耀發現照耀你。 看哪，黑暗遮蓋大地， 幽暗遮蓋萬民， 耶和華卻要顯現照耀你； 他的榮耀要現在你身上。 萬國要來就你的光； 君王要來就你發現的光輝。
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

主啊，你世世代代作我們的居所。 諸山未曾生出， 地與世界你未曾造成， 從亙古到永遠，你是神。 (詩篇 90 : 1 -2)
天父我們讚美祢，祢是全能獨一的真神，我們高舉祢至聖尊名。作為中國人，我們深深感謝祢帶領我們走過五千多年漫長的歷史，讚美祢對我們的大愛、憐憫和大信實！ 感謝祢奇妙地把我們華人安置在世界不同的角落，又在世界各地賦予我們獨特的角色和十分奇妙的命定。 神啊，祢的確是我們華人世世代代的居所，是我們的主，又是掌管著宇宙萬物和萬國的大君王。
當我們觀看祢指頭所造的天，並祢所陳設的月亮星宿，便說：人算甚麼，祢竟顧念我們！華人算甚麼，祢竟眷顧我們！祢創造我們如此眾多，並賜我們榮耀尊貴為冠冕。(詩篇8:3-8)。 祢使我們的後裔如同地上的塵沙那樣多，人若能數算地上的塵沙才能數算我們尤其華人的後裔。(創世記 13:16)
天父啊，祢從一本造出萬族的人，住在全地上，並且預先定準我們華人的年限和所住的疆界，要叫我們尋求神祢，或者可以揣摩而得，其實祢離我們各人不遠；我們生活、動作、存留，都在乎他。就如我們作詩的，有人說：『我們也是他所生的。』 我們既是神所生的，就不當以為神的神性像人用手藝、心思所雕刻的金、銀、石。世人蒙昧無知的時候，神祢並不監察，因此，我們全球華人在各處都向祢悔改, 求你赦免我們的愚昧無知和拜偶像的罪。(使徒行傳 17:26-30)
在這新的季節中, 求父祢大大憐憫拯救我們, 賜給我們救恩，使全球華人的民族都要歸向祢。 求祢赦免我們歷世歷代拜偶像、拜祖先的罪。 今天我們也在神祢面前承認我們的無知，在我們華人文化和風俗中，多有得罪祢的地方，求祢赦免我們諸般的迷信、扭曲思想和眾多不屬神價值標準滲透在種種華人文化、習俗甚至文物中。
踏進新一里程，我們求主向華人大大施恩， 拯救我們, 醫治和釋放我們,。又如约珥先知的预言，願聖靈大大澆灌我們這全球最多人口的民族, 使凡有血氣的, 尤其年輕的一代，可以說預言、見異象， 多代同行，並肩攜手，一起走進神給我們末後的旨意和命定， 成為萬國的祝福。
作為全球也是最多基督徒人口的民族, 我們在此宣告，我們華人必成為最大興起敬拜讚美禱告和宣教、滿有大能的民族！ 如啟示錄所描述，在末後的日子，我們華人教會必晝夜不息，以琴與金香爐來敬拜事奉，使萬國列邦的祝福。但願尊貴榮耀頌讚全歸坐在寶座上曾被殺的羔羊耶穌，阿們。
Prayer for Revival of all Chinese around the world in the coming new year.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.(Psalms 90:1-2 NIV)
Father God, we praise You as the Almighty and exalt Your holy name. Thank You for your great mercies and faithfulness to us for the past 5000+ years of our nation. Thank You that You have amazingly positioned us in different continents around the world. Thank You that you have given us very unique roles to play among the nations especially during this critical hour with a great destiny. You are our God, God of all Chinese and all generations and our eternal dwelling place, King of the universe, and God of all nations.
When we see and consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have established, what are the chinese that You are mindful of us, And we, that so many sons of [earthborn] men that You care for us? Yet You have made us so numerous and unique in Your eyes, God, And You have crowned us with glory and honor. You made us to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under our feet with those among the nations…..(Psalms 8:3-6). You have made us and our descendants as numerous as the dust of the earth, so that if a man could count the grains of dust of the earth, then the Chinese’s descendants could also be counted. (Genesis 13:16).
From generation to generation, today, again we declare that You are the only God of our Nation and all Chinese around the world. You are the One who guide us with Your great mercies, preserve us with Your loving kindness, and predestined us with Your soverign great purposes. You have called us among all other nations for a divine high calling to become a blessing to all nations for such a time as this. You are our Creator, our Lord, our King, and our salvation, from evelasting to everlasting.
Father God, You made from one man every nation of mankind to live on the face of the earth, having determined our appointed times and the boundaries of our lands and territories. This was so that we would seek You God, if perhaps we might grasp for You and find You, though You are not far from each one of us. For in You we live and move and exist. That is, in You we actually have our being, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ So then, being God’s children, we chinese should not think that Your Divine Nature (deity) is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination or skill of man. On behalf of Chinese everywhere, we come to You in repentance and ask your grace of forgiveness to change our old way of thinking, to regret our ignorance of past sins, and to seek God Your purpose for our lives. (Acts 17: 26-30)
During this special new season for the Chinese, we pray especially for Your salvation to come to us and all chinese diaspora around the world. On behalf of the chinese, we ask for Your great mercies and forgiveness to come to us for our ignorance of not knowing You but to worship all kinds of idols. Today, we come to You in repentance and corporately confess our sins, also for all kinds of generational and national sins, for so many idolatories, witchcraft and ancestral malpractices. Lord, we also want to repent especially for our many ungodly cultures and superstitous practices. We confess that our customs and beliefs are also full of many wrong teachings, unbiblical philosophies and distorted values (including gender discrimination), myths, lies and deceptions.
In the name of Jesus, today we renounce all these and reject especially the serious wrong worship of the Dragon and its false correlated deep-rooted values. We declare that the Chinese will no longer be bounded under the Spirit of orphans and of slavery as for the past several hundred years. Out of these misconceptions, we also renounce our distorted low self esteem and sense of insecurity or even national inferiority imposed by wrong concepts of our identity. We proclaim that we Chinese are wonderfully and fearfully made according to Father God’s image and likeness in such a huge number. We are therefore never descendants of the Dragon nor orphans from unknown mysterious origins. Instead, we are made as precious and honourable people in the sight of the Creator of the universe. We would thus see ourselves through the grace given unto us as Chinese a nation and to every man that is among the nations, not to think of ourselves more highly nor lowly than we ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. (Romans 12:3 KJV).
As we enter into this strategic new season and new era, Lord, on behalf of all chinese around the world, we claim what Jesus has accomplished on the Cross and ask Your special grace of healing and deliverance to come to all chinese. Please forgive our iniquities, cleanse us and sanctify us with Jesus’ Blood, and set us free from all spiritual and cultural bondages. Lord, may You pour out Your Holy Spirit on all of flesh, especially on us as the biggest population of the world, and set us on fire. We ask earnestly for Your mighty revival to come especially on our younger generation, so that they will stir themselves up in the Spirit and consecrate for war as what Joel, the Prophet prophesized (Joel 3:9). May our younger ones also prophesize and see visions, our elderlies dream dreams, and let all chinese around the world walk hand in hand into the great glorious destiny God You have given us inter-generationally, to be a huge blessing to all continents and corners of the world.
May we become a nation of royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for Your own possession, that we may proclaim Your excellencies who called us out of darkness into Your marvellous light (2 Pet 2:9). May we be a nation who knows Your Convenant and loves Israel Your chosen People and able to bring the gospel “Back to Jerusalem”. May the global Chinese Church be willing to respond to Your high calling to finish the last baton of the gospel
and to fulfil the Great Commission altogether with the global Body of Christ among the nations.
As also the biggest christian population around the world, we hereby proclaim that we Chinese are also the largest worshipping and praying Church, a holy and mighty People of Yahweh. The incense of the Chinese saints will rise up day and night to fill up the Bowls of heaven and worship You unceasingly before Your throne (Rev 5:8). We declare that we will become a nation who worship You only and serve You alone. Surely there is no other God like You, Lord. May all honour, glory and blessings be unto Jesus, the Lamb of God, our Saviour, who deserves due reward for His suffering among all the Chinese around the world. Amen and Hallelujah.
