The Chinese Government is oppressing this people group. We’re praying for them.

Sources have been reporting for years that the Chinese government has been oppressing Uyghur Muslims. Last year, we prayed for the Uyghurs of China because we care about all suffering, especially eternal suffering.

Watch this video to learn more about the plight of the Uyghur people and to join us in prayer:

Chinese Oppression of the Uyghur Muslims

  • Between one and three million Uyghurs have been shipped to “re-education” camps.
  • Since 2018, sources have been reporting that these re-education camps have led to forced labor.
  • Uyghur parents are subject to forced sterilization.
  • Sources are now reporting that Uyghur children are being killed in cruel acts of forced abortion and infanticide.

Our Prayer for the Uyghur People

There are over 11.8 million Uyghurs living in China. Only 0.1% of these Uyghurs have professed faith in Christ, classifying the Uyghurs as an unreached people group. We pray for unreached peoples because we believe that Christ is worthy of praise from “every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9).

Christians care about all suffering, especially eternal suffering. In compassion, we grieve the injustice committed against the Uyghur people. In hope, we pray that workers would be sent to the Uyghurs to tell of the life-changing good news of Jesus Christ.

“The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.”

Luke 10:2
