Father, we thank you for our faithful brothers and sisters in China. Help them to stand fast in their faith and show Jesus’ love to those who persecute them. Protect them and strengthen them through these trials, so that they may be refined and come forth as gold. Pour out your Grace on all believers in China and the persecuted church around the world. Thank you for the privilege of sharing in their suffering through prayer. Thank you for Your Gift of Your Son Jesus!
