Pray for China

From Crosswalk.com Religion News Update:

Voice of the Martyrs and China Aid Association are encouraging Christians to wear “Pray for China” wristbands as the opening ceremonies approach, according to OneNewsNow. Reports of increased house church raids and imprisonment of Christians have trickled through government lines in a pre-Olympics crackdown. “The Chinese government wants this Olympic season to be a great coming-out party for the nation of China. So they are doing everything they can to keep Christians out of Beijing, especially those who would be inclined to protest or make any kind of public spectacle,” VOM Spokesman Todd Nettleton said. “The Chinese government wants to ensure this Olympics goes on right on schedule, without a hitch.” Wristbands can be ordered at the VOM and China Aid Association Web sites.
