Dear God & Father, I pray for Chinese house church leaders & members facing persecution: Protect, provide for, comfort, strengthen, encourage & guide them. May they stay strong & united in faith, hope & love, committed to Christ & growing in numbers & maturity. Give their leaders wisdom. Open the hearts of officials & their President to You. May believers be able to nurture their children & youth in the faith. Sustain those facing imprisonment & their families. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
