Pray for Families Affected by the Closing of a Christian School

[251] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Christian school students.

In July, authorities closed a Christian school in Henan province, claiming it was brainwashing children. National security officers confiscated materials used at the school, which operated out of a woman’s home, and also removed items belonging to a house church that met there. Pray that the children who attended the school will be able to continue learning about Jesus and the Bible. Pray that their parents will find new ways to educate their children and that area Christians will be emboldened by this recent persecution.
