As always, I encourage you to pray for believers in other nations who are persecuted, arrested or imprisoned for the cause of Christ. Today, I received an alert about a recent case for prayer.

According to China Aid Association, on June 10, a Chinese court sentenced Christian bookstore owner, Shi Weihan, 38, to three years in prison for “illegal business operations,” and imposed a US$21,975 fine. Shi Weihan operated a legal bookstore and only sold books with the government’s approval. His Holy Spirit Trading Company printed Bibles and Christian literature and distributed then freely to local house churches. Weihan was arrested in November 2007 and now sentenced for printing and distributing Bibles and other Christian literature.

Take a few moments to pray for Shi today.
