China (Sight Magazine)
Hundreds of Christians in China end up in jail from wrongful accusations on behalf of the government. Many of these Christians are accused of breaking the law for belonging to a “cult” without any real proof, but many are tortured or killed for not submitting to the communist wishes of the government. Recently, six Christians were sent to jail with sentences of up to 13 years based on cult activity charges. These sentences have been viewed as especially severe and the six Christians maintain that the charges are false.
- Pray for the release of these six Christians from prison.
- Pray for these six Christians to hold fast to their faith in prison.
- Pray for the Chinese government to respect the Christian Church, rather than treating it as a cult.
