Pray for Six Women Charged with Holding an Illegal Bible Study

[294] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Six Women.

Police detained six Christian women on Jan. 10 for holding a Bible study at their church. The pastor said that they continued to hold regular meetings even after the religious affairs bureau had posted a notice threatening to ban the church if it continued to hold “illegal” gatherings. Officers from religious affairs, public security and urban management bureaus interrupted a church service to arrest the women, and the officers reportedly shoved and beat some men in the church who tried to stop them. The women were given sentences ranging from 10 to 15 days each on a charge of “organizing unauthorized religious activities.”
