Pray for Arrested Christian Students and Children of Arrested Parents

[403] prayers in [23] nations have been posted for Arrested Christian Students.

Sixteen Christian students were arrested earlier this month, the latest in a series of arrests since May 2017. The students, who were arrested after being discovered praying together, were held for more than two weeks before being released. Nearly 200 Christians have reportedly been arrested since May 2017. “What makes this persecution different is that whole families are now being arrested,” a VOM contact said. “Whereas in the past most were picked up at Bible studies or Christian services, now believers are being arrested at their homes. [Because of the arrests], more than 30 children have been left without parents or guardians and the security police are monitoring them to make sure they do not get support from the Christian community.” Please pray for all those affected by the arrests, especially for the children. Pray for an end to this persecution.
