For Early Rain Covenant Church in China

Almighty God, I pray today for the brothers and sisters of Early Rain Covenant Church who are being targeted and persecuted by the Chinese government authorities.

Grant that in the midst of hatred, arrest, threats, and imprisonment they may still pray with great joy, that their faith may survive the trial and stand the test and be found genuine, more precious than gold, that it may result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

Give strength, patience, health, and stamina to those in prison. Give grace to those who are being watched, threatened, and restricted, that they may find the fellowship, worship, and support they need. Give hope to any whose faith is weak. Give courage to those who are afraid.

Let neither personal failures in this time of trial nor individual victories cause division between the brothers and sisters. Let both weakness and strength be covered by the shed blood of Jesus, to the praise of your glorious grace. Please grant abundant love, joy, peace, and faith to every soul enduring this moment of tribulation, in Jesus' name, amen.
