I Prayed have prayed
Heavenly Father, as our country has athletes in China, we pray for protection over them. We pray that you would protect us from the cybercriminals and the damage they could create to our country.

From Fox News: FBI Director Christopher Wray said the threat coming from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is “more brazen” and “more damaging than ever before” with U.S. counter-intelligence operations opening every 12 hours.

“There’s just no country that presents a broader threat to our ideas, innovation and economic security than China,” Wray said Monday, speaking from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. “The Chinese government steals staggering volumes of information and causes deep, job-destroying damage across a wide range of industries.”

The director said the bureau currently has more than 2,000 open investigations into the Chinese government’s attempts to steal private information and intellectual property.

The FBI issued an additional warning this week as U.S. athletes prepare for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, telling the competitors and their teams to stay off social media…

“The FBI urges all athletes to keep their personal cellphones at home and use a temporary phone while at the Games,” the Department of Defense warned Monday. “Adversaries could use social engineering and phishing campaigns leading up to and during the event to implant malware to disrupt networks broadcasting the event.”

Though Moscow has made headlines because of its known use of cybercrime tactics, the FBI director said China has unleashed a hacking program that is “bigger than those of every other major country combined…”

In addition to the increased threat from China, security officials also pointed to attempts by cybercriminals to profit from the Olympic Games in the past.

The FBI said that during the 2020 Tokyo summer games, which were moved to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, more than 450 million cyber-related incidents were attempted by cybercriminals – though none was successful due to security measures that were in place.

3,800 views and 496 prayers….What are the other people doing, are they just reading these articles to gather information? For good purposes, or for evil? Examine yourselves, and take the time to bring these heavy issues before The Throne of The God of The Universe.

This is One Olympic Games that AMERICA NEEDS TO HAVE BOYCOTTED…It is Not Too Late. They do not need to participate in any form or fashion—and Americans choosing to go should get their heads screwed on right!

America is in the fight for her life, right now——-and the last thing that we need to do is be stupid enough to go to China for Anything!

MEDALS are nice—-but those who have trained so hard for so long can live without them, with ALL that is NOW Going on.

“Wisdom is the principal thing—get wisdom——and with wisdom—-get understanding.” GOD’s holy WORD says it all.

    Amen! I refuse to watch anything coming out of China. Their crimes against humanity with the slaughter of the unborn, the Falun Gong people, the Christians, forced abortions and sterilization is more than enough reason to boycott that country!!! I will, however, pray for our brothers and sisters living in that darkness to be the light of Jesus 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Seriously? The 2019 Military Games in Wuhan, China held in October 2019 resulted in military athletes being sick with SARS-COV-2. The lack of informing athletes that this is a perfect vector for launching a bioweapon is criminal. Athletes and all attending the games should be quarantined for 40 days to ensure that they are not vectors. They should be supportive with access to the best tools to support them during quarantine. I PRAY THAT THE LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT AND ANY ATTEMPT OF THE CCP TO USE THE OLYMPICS FOR THEIR GEOPOLITICAL OR BIOLOGICAL GAIN WILL BE EXPOSED AND THWARTED. I PRAY FOR SAFETY OF OUR ATHLETES AND THAT THE WORLD WILL WAKE UP AND STAND AGAINST THE ACTIONS OF THE CCP.

I have long questioned the wisdom of allowing our athletes to attend these games in China, for a number of reasons. We are ignoring and thereby approving their human rights abuses. They unleashed Covid on this earth with no apologies. They have 80 million people in lockdown right now, which may indicate another virus has been released. If our athletes become ill, how will they be treated? Will they be allowed to return home? And frankly, I wouldn’t put it past the CCP to detain our athletes for no reason, as political hostages.

Now we have cyber concerns.

Lord, grant Your mighty protection to all of our athletes. Surround them with Your mighty angels. Keep them alert and safe, and bring them back to us safely and without incident. Amen.

May no weapon by the government of China prevail, but only the plans and purposes of Our God prevail. Father, protect each Olympian have Your hand of protection. I pray against any attitude that any of our Olympians would have against complying to the advice of those advising over safety issues with cyber protection from this nation. May the angels of the Lord be released to protect, guard over and bless the Nation of China with the fruit of God’s Word, that many will come into the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Savior. We know You are sending some who bring the Good News of salvation . Be Glorified Oh Lord.

Why we would not boycott this Olympics due to China’s unleashing the virus on the world, lying about it and endangering even more people, their treatment of their own citizens, so harsh and repressive, (Uyghur Muslims most recently) their treatment of Hong Kong and now Taiwan, their deceptive dealings with our country, they embody everything we are against – tyranny, control through propaganda, – we can’t stand for freedom and support China. But now it is prayer for our athletes that is needed, that they will be protected and let their lights shine for freedom and fairness and what is good and right. We are told to overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21) “The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5) let it be so!

Praying that God will go before them & would prepare the way, put a hedge of protection around every team member that goes as ambassadors of the U.S. even as we are representatives & citizens of heaven And that God would give their coaches wisdom & discernment in how to prepare their team members in advance on what to take, what not to take, how to handle themselves once they arrive in China as to what to say, what not to say, things to watch out for, & things to be on the alert for so they are not caught by surprise. Also to warn them not to let their guard down, but to stay on guard at all times in case of any hidden agendas. Praying that God gives them the strength & the courage to do their very best with the training they have been trained for all these years to let their light shine & show off their God given athletic abilities that God placed inside of them before they were ever born. That they would outshine every other athlete & in doing so, that the name of Jesus would be magnified & glorified, & that Jesus would receive all the praise & all the glory!

We pray for your supernatural protection over each athlete while in China. We ask that You would give them discernment over all matters and we pray that You would help them to resist the temptations that will be thrown at them by the enemies of their souls. We ask that Your unwavering courage would be given to all who stand boldly for God, freedom and country. May the success that they encounter be an opportunity to witness to the glory of God.
We also pray that the CCP’s attempts at malicious and criminal hacking, planting and other wrongful tech actions will be fully repelled by Your protective hand and the presence of Gods warring angels. Amen.

Lord God Almighty, reading the above article gets me frightened. But Lord, you tell me, “do not be afraid, for I am Sovereign and Almighty God.” To you Oh Lord be Honor, Glory, Power and Victory. May I honor you and glorify your name and look with owe at your mighty works! Almighty God, may I come to you with these threats; therefore Lord, I pray that, through your Holy Power and Wisdom, you will keep us and our country safe. I pray that all Chinese attempts of stealing our technology and else will not succeed. You destroyed the Canaanites at Horma and Sihon, king of the Amorites when the Israelites cried out to you, facing them in the desert. You fought so many battles for your people of Israel, so numerous that I can’t name them all. I pray Lord, that you will give the US athletes who are in China and others from developed countries for the Olympics, lots of wisdom and discernment. That they will abide by the counsel for safety they received. We, your children, do not deserve any of the abundance that comes to us every day from your hand, Lord. We praise you and thank you for all of your blessings. I humbly pray to you, Almighty God, because you want your children to come to you in humility with our burdens and concerns. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. To you I pray in Jesus Holy Name. Amen!

In Jesus Name we ask of the the the Holy Spirit that He move on behalf of our US folks on the Olympics Team, He would release an increase of light over the team and all foreign, evil enemies shall bow in the name of Jesus. We decree the plans of the enemy be broken and destroyed , in the mighty name of Jesus.
We thank-you Father that you care about America and the soul of this nation!

China should not be hosting the Olympics, they are dangerous and the CCP will try to use every opportunity to take down America.
America’s leaders need to repent for their foolishness.
God break their hearts for what breaks yours.
May all the politicians who have an evil agenda be removed in Jesus Name, God bring them to the end of themselves, where you ex[pose the evil and strip them all their false confidence and every evil power bow to the name of Jesus! The name of Jesus, the Name of Jesus.
