China’s unprecedented drought
Please pray for China, which is seeing an unprecedented drought along its longest river, the Yangtze, due to a month-long heatwave and record low rainfall. Due to a high reliance on hydro-electric power, the country has been forced to implement emergency measures to save electricity, including factories closing, shops reducing opening hours and office buildings switching off air conditioning. According to China’s National Climate Centre, sustained regional heatwaves have broken all established records. Praise God for the authorities’ wisdom in dealing with the situation, and pray for rain to fall across the country.
