Amidst escalating tensions and continuous Chinese military harassment, Christians all over Taiwan are coming together day and night, meeting in groups 24/7, to seek divine intervention. Their prayers are focused on revival, unity, repentance, and protection over their homeland, as they seek guidance and solace during these uncertain times.

China’s military recently released a video showing what simulated attacks on Taiwan would look like.
“A war here in Taiwan would have catastrophic economic consequences not just for this island, but for the whole world,” warned SkyNews London in a report from Taipei.
The tiny island off the mainland coast is now facing almost daily Chinese military harassment. “Taiwan is beefing up its military and training with new U.S. weapons,” reported CBS News, as its military prepares for possible full-scale war.
“To be clear, we do not seek conflict or confrontation, but we will not flinch in the face of bullying or coercion,” said a defiant U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
While the war drums grow louder by day, Taiwan’s Christians are taking to their knees by night.
“The united prayers and fasting prayers of the churches in Taiwan are much more than ever before. It’s an unprecedented prayer movement,” Brian Lu, pastor of Shekinah House of Bread of Life in Taipei, told CBN News.
All across this island, people are meeting every day, 24 hours a day, to pray for revival, unity, repentance, and protection over their land.
Peter Yang, a pastor with a long history of ministering and establishing churches in Taiwan, has expressed awe at the unprecedented level of unity displayed by the Christian community in the country. Under the leadership of Rev. Yang, who leads the Taiwan Christian Alliance, churches from various denominations are coming together and uniting in a way he has never seen before. This movement has led to the emergence of over 40,000 Revival Prayer Groups, with an impressive total of approximately 200,000 participants.
Peter Yang has pastored and planted churches in Taiwan since 1978 and says he’s never seen the kind of unity now on display. Churches across denominational lines have been joining the initiative.
“What’s happening today is so rare,” said Rev. Yang who leads the Taiwan Christian Alliance. “Every day, every week, I join pastors from other churches, other denominations, and we pray for our cities, for our nation for other countries. It’s amazing, it’s clearly God’s doing. Unity will be the legacy of this movement.”
More than 40,000 Revival Prayer Groups have sprouted up, with members of China’s underground church movement also taking part. Each group has about 5 members, so that brings the current total to roughly 200,000 participants.
