Spouses of Imprisoned Church Members Arrested

[243] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Early Rain Covenant Church Members.

The crackdown on the Chengdu-based Early Rain Covenant Church continues. In February, relatives of imprisoned church members gathered in front of the German consulate in Chengdu, seeking diplomatic aid. The three wives and one husband of currently imprisoned church members smiled and raised their Bibles, hoping German diplomats would help them obtain information on their imprisoned spouses. Instead, police arrested the four, along with a baby. The Christians were detained for several days before being released. No information has been released on the church members who have been in prison since Dec. 9, 2018. Pray for the wisdom of Early Rain church members during this time.

  • Father, You have told us that in this world we will suffer persecution, but to rejoice because You have overcome the world. And everyone who follows You is also an overcomer. Bless those whose loved ones are held behind prison bars. Assure that You have not for them or their loved ones. Use those who are in prison to shine Your light to others there.

  • Psalm 1
    4 Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
    5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
    6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.
