The Church faces immense pressure from a paranoid government. A believer can be fined for having a Christian song on their phone. In some areas, it’s even illegal to own a Bible. Christians are constantly monitored; phones are tapped, and spies try to infiltrate Christian gatherings. House churches are frequently raided and those present can be detained for up to 15 days, interrogated and fined.

Pray: For strength for Christians who risk everything to secretly meet together.
