Some Guys To Pray For

I found this list on the net and am using it for my prayer time. These are the men who run China and determine the policies which the people live under. I am living and praying in the truth that these men are just like the men in Isaiah's day. The rulers in Isaiah's time seemed just as large in the scope of their influence and even intimidating in their ability to stand inestimably out of the common man's reach. These men in China are the same. Yet God says of the leaders in Isaiah's world
7 thus says the Lord GOD: "It shall not stand nor shall it come to pass.

8 "For the head of Aram is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin (now within another 65 years Ephraim will be shattered, so that it is no longer a people),

9 and the head of Ephraim is Samaria and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. If you will not believe, you surely shall not last."'"

He is saying that the head of this empire is just a man. So today we say that the head of China (中国) is Beijing (北京) and the head of Beijing is Hu Jintao(胡锦涛). He is just a man.
This is to say that their hearts are just as open to the power of God as any other man's. Their eyes can be opened to see the Son of God (耶稣基督). This is our prayer.
