[456] prayers in [28] nations have been posted for Yang Hua.

On Jan. 5, Pastor Yang Hua of the Living Stone Church in Guiyang, China, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for “divulging state secrets.” Pastor Yang, also known as Li Guoshi, has been imprisoned since Dec. 9, 2015. Authorities had initially sentenced him to two five-day administrative detentions for “obstructing justice” and “gathering a crowd to disturb public order.” Pastor Yang and another pastor founded Living Stone Church in 2009, and its membership rapidly expanded from 20 members to more than 700 members. Please pray for Pastor Yang and his family as he serves his prison sentence. Pray also that members of the Living Stone Church will continue to grow in faith.

  • 1 Timothy 3:10 You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, 11 my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra—which persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me.

  • I ask Dear Lord that You would be with Yang Hua as he serves his prison sentence. Give him many opportunities to pastor in the prison. Protect Your believers in China from false accusations and remove anything that gives the officials a means to stop the Church. Bear up the Living Stone Church and may they grow strong in their faith.

  • O Gracious Father, to read of Yang Hua being imprisoned is to see Your act of "taking the light inside". Yes, as surely as Yang was mightily used by You, in building that Church, we have strong reason to also believe Yang is now doing that in the prison. Protect and empower him, O Father, as he shares Christ with prisoner and guards in every Godly way
