Pray for Pastor Zheng, Whose Church Was Forced to Close

[250] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Pastor Zheng.

After resisting government pressure to join the state-run Three Self Church, the Ci Ai Fellowship in China’s southern Guangdong province was forced to close on Oct. 25. Government authorities took church members’ ID cards, confiscated the church’s Christian literature and summoned Pastor Zheng Shaoyun for questioning. Prior to the raid, authorities had threatened to prevent the pastor’s son from advancing in his career if the church didn’t stop meeting illegally. Pray that church members will remain committed to Christ despite government pressure and that Pastor Zheng’s faith will be emboldened as she leads the church through this period of persecution. Pray also for the protection of her son’s career.
