Zhou, a lawyer sentenced to 7 years in prison, worked with Chinese Christian leader Hu Shigen, who was given 7.5 years on Wednesday.
Those who say that Christian persecution does not exist here is an example. Also, China needs to have sanctions placed on it, these acts against Christians are going way too far. This is mild compared to the wife of a Pastor killed a few months ago.
We pray for our brother and sisters in China and Asia as they suffer. Though as Jesus warned suffering is a part of following him. Yet we all stand strong in the face of death and beating. None of us will turn from the face of oppression and hate. We will preach the gospel to those that torment us. Hu Shigen and others as Paul wrote we are suffering with you.
Dear Father Yahweh, we pray that you protect our brothers and sisters. Keep them safe and protected. Guide them through their trials and lay your angels of mercy on them. In the name of Christ Jesus and strength of the Holy Spirit Amen.
