Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
New religion regulations came into force across China on 1 February. The updated regulations, which form part of a government crackdown on “extremism”, increase government scrutiny of religious literature and websites, and require registered religious organisations not to “use religion to harm national security, disrupt social order … or [do] other harm [to] national interests”. The changes appear to leave Christians, particularly those in registered churches who are legally allowed to meet, in a more vulnerable position. Pray for wisdom and courage for our brothers and sisters in China, whether in registered churches or in unregistered churches; they can so easily be accused of disrupting social order or damaging national interests, simply by living as Christians.
