As a Christian who lives in HK, I know that there are massive governmental protests in where I live.
https://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-asia-china-48455370
If you want to join in to pray for God to take pity on the people in here, please type in your prayer as a reply to this thread. Just one requirement, the prayer cannot be over 120 words.

Here is mine, in order to start the thread:
Dear Lord, I come to you with this prayer for my city. Those scenes in the news made me shudder. Lord, I know that you can bless my city and everyone in here, so I put my trust in you right now. I bless you to give me a rebundant heart and keep me out of those protests, as I know that the law of this city is not as good as yours.
Once again, I bless you to keep pity on everyone in my city. I know you are the only one who can calm this storm, and bring those in my city to know you.
In your name I pray, Amen.

Again, I heard that Protest No.5 will happen on Sunday afternoon. I am serious, THREE PROTESTS IN TWO WEEKS, and the LegCo meeting did not go ahead today, it is delayed for two days already.
So I hope more people can join this thread and pray for HK, especially to #2, who said he felt heartbroken.

Thanks.
Also, bit of an update:
The march protest today has lasted for six hours and it is still ongoing. The organiser has announced that 2 million people have joined the protest as of 6:30 pm, which is almost 30% of the population.
So please continue to pray for my city. Still quite heartbroken.😭😭😭🙏🙏

I hope the city is alright. It seems 0 of the population like the Chinese

Best wishes for the people of HK, including HK nationals living here in the UK who have to see their home go through this

It is now getting worse here, feeling even more heartbroken. There was a protest march every Sunday for six straight weeks, and various districts were affected. There was also a strong riot in Yuen Long last night, which injured 45 people.
Now everyone in Hong Kong is feeling very down, and some even do not want to go out. No one can imagine how Hong Kong has become just because of an unwanted extradition law.
So please drop a line here and pray for Hong Kong.

There is a protest in my district tomorrow, so my family has stocked up. Please pray for my family because all of us are so scared to go out.

Just an update for you guys:
There are massive crowds at the airport today, and all flights leaving between 6:30 pm and 2:25 am are cancelled. I will be on holiday to Germany next week, so may God give me a safe journey there. My flight will be leaving at 12:35 am on the 21st.

Here is a bit of update:
Some MTR stations were damaged by protesters and closed today, and three lines were shut down, which includes the Airport Express. The city is back to school tomorrow, so if the network is not back to normal tomorrow, it may affect the travel of students.

Apologies for the late reply. I have not been following the news stories on this, as it seems highly disturbing, what's going on in Hong Kong :sadnod: Continued prayers for you all

There will be a class strike tomorrow, but I will absolutely not participate in it. My class has decided to write political slogans on the Maths S1 test tomorrow, but I will not do that and take the test seriously.
A lot of people in HK, especially students, still cannot make the right decision, causing to protests weekend after weekend.

Today is the worst day of protests EVER. Almost every district has its own march today, as it is the Chinese national day.
Fortunately I have stocked up.

Please may all of you quickly drop a line to pray for Hong Kong. The city was a total mess last night, with MTR stations and shops being damaged. The MTR was shut down for the entirety of today.
In addition, due to a new anti-mask law, there are protests in 14 districts over yesterday and today.
