In the 1940s the world was at war and in utter turmoil. While the West was embroiled in the fight against Hitler’s Nazis, China found herself under assault from Japan. When the Chinese church heard of the Nazi invasion of Poland they were rocked by the reality of the worldwide upheaval.
It is said that on the Sunday that news reached China, Watchman Nee (a Chinese Christian leader, teacher, contemplative and devotional writer) sensed the despair of the people. He called his church to dedicated prayer, calling it a “weapon for which there was no defense.”
“Prayer,” he said, “can do anything God can do.”
Such a comforting thought when evil seems to have the upper hand.
Has sin ………
