Detained for praying
Officials gave Fuyang Maizhong Reformed Church Pastor Zhang Sen a 15-day detention on March 28th, after he led prayers outside the detention center on March 24th to welcome fellow church members who were released. Here's a photo of some of the Christians praying.

Pray for Pastor Zhang, his church, and their persecutors.

Trial delay for Chang Hao
The trial of Preacher Chang Hao was postponed on March 25th after the judge said the case would not be heard publically. The trial was later postponed, and a new trial date has not been set. Here's why Chang's mother considers his arrest as 'grace and honor' and gives thanks to God.

Pray for Preacher Chang, his legal team, and their persecutors.

Forced confessions for church members
We've learned that five Shengjia Church Christians accused of "illegal business operations" stated that previous statements they made came after threats or coercion by Chinese officials. Here's some of the brutal range of threats these Christians have endured.

Pray for these five detained Christians, their lawyers, and persecutors. 

CCP targets reformed writers
Chinese online translation services are not offering translations for content related to the work of Martin Luther or John Calvin. Internet officials maintain that "any religion must adapt to Chinese socialist society." Here's more on how one Christian sees that the "reformed faith is now on the radar."

Pray for all Chinese Christians and Internet censorship officials.
