The Holy Martyr Saints of China Prayer
Almighty God, we give You thanks for choosing many Chinese faithful to witness for Christ by giving up their lives. We especially thank You for bestowing sainthood on over one hundred Chinese martyrs. We beg You that through the intercession of all the Chinese martyr saints, many more Chinese people would be canonized as saints to glorify You. We also pray that we may follow the example of these Chinese martyrs by remaining strong in faith, hope and love, by overcoming fear of hardship and sacrifice, and by boldly proclaiming our faith.
May the Gospel of Jesus Christ be spread throughout China and may Chinese people in all parts of the world receive the light of faith and the grace to follow Christ each day, so as to enter Your everlasting kingdom. We ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
