Authorities Remove More than 4,500 Crosses from Churches

[262] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Churches in Henan Province.

Officials have removed crosses from more than 90 percent of the government-approved churches in Henan province, according to a VOM partner. In addition to removing crosses from the government-approved churches, officials have shut down many house churches, which do not have government approval to hold religious events. “We have no solution,” one Christian said. “Many [Christian] brothers and sisters do not dare to worship together and must privately and secretly gather.” Continue to pray for Christians in Henan.

  • 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.
