On August 17, 2019, Shanghai International Church held a prayer meeting for world peace, especially peace in Hong Kong, during their Bible study session.
According to Shanghai Christianity, more than 200 participants prayed for peace in Hong Kong as disputes were ongoing in the area.
Leaders of small groups led the believers to pray in turns. They prayed for the leadership in Hong Kong so they can receive wisdom and authority from God to deliver better governance. The prayer also covered the citizens in Hong Kong to inspire them to bravely say "no" to violence with peace and strength from God.
They prayed for the local churches and Christians to watch over each other and mercifully help people in need. The prayer was for blessings, prosperity, and a good lifestyle in China.
Aimed at achieving harmony amongst humankind and maintaining global lasting peace, the prayer meeting for world peace initiative was launched by six organizations, including Friends of the United Nations and World Trade United Foundation.
