Pray for Believers as Government Passes Restrictions, Bans Online Bible Sales

[233] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Chinese Believers.

Pray for Christians in China as the government continues to further restrict Christian activity. In February, churches were ordered to report their religious activities to authorities. In March, the Communist Party disbanded its Religious Affairs Bureau and the Communist Party’s Central Committee absorbed the duty of managing religious life in China. In April, the government banned the online sale of Bibles — a setback in a country where printed Bibles were already difficult for many to obtain. President Xi Jinping continues to increase his control over religious life and promote Chinese nationalism. The Communist Party may also be working on a new Bible translation, meant to inject Chinese values into Scriptures. Pray for Christians in China to stand up under the increasing pressure, and pray for those involved in Bible distribution work.

As your Word continues to be difficult to obtain, make it all the more precious in the eyes of the Chinese people. Please cause this persecution to have the opposite of its intended effect!

  • Father, our hearts break at China's banning the Scriptures in such a huge country that is hungry for it. We ask for Your guidance there to show the believers how they might still be able to accomplish, perhaps with technology. Be with them as they seek You concerning this matter. We ask that President Jinping and authorities recant their decision
    Gail M - USA
  • Father let these believers rejoice and be glad, for their reward in heaven is great; for in the same way
    the prophets were persecuted who were before them. Let them rejoice in their sufferings for your
    sake, as in their flesh they do their share on behalf of Christ's body, which is the church, in filling up
    what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.
