Prayer for the Church in China

O Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Lord of history.
We humbly entrust to you the Church in China,
joining in earnest prayers with Pope Francis and the
Universal Church for unity of faith and love. 
Help us, Lord, to trust in and cling to you and the 
Rock upon which you have built your Church.
You have counted among the blessed those who are
persecuted for the sake of righteousness. Out of their 
sacrificial love, may the Holy Spirit draw abundant fruit, 
including reconciliation, whether in or out of season.  
Heavenly Father, may freedom of religion be respected 
and upheld in fuller measure throughout the land. 
Our Lady of Sheshan, pray for the Church in China!  
Mother, pray for us all! 
Composed by Michael Yeung
Bishop of Hong Kong
