China – Pray for Christian Lawyer Cheng Yuan

Cheng Yuan was arrested in 2019 for his work as a lawyer and for his involvement with an organization known to protect the rights and interests of vulnerable members of society. Cheng was sentenced to 5 years in prison whilst 2 other members of the organization received sentences of two or three years.

Cheng’s wife, Shi Minglei, and their daughter had to flee the country for safety in 2021. Shi continues to advocate for her husband’s freedom from the United States where she is presently residing.

On 5th July this year, Shi received a letter from Cheng informing her that he was transferred to the Hunan Chishan Prison and placed in solitary confinement from 18th January to 18th April. And during that time, he was prohibited from making any contact with his family or his lawyer and subjected to forced labour. Cheng disclosed that he was made to work all day operating a sewing machine and forced to submit to indoctrination each evening.

According to former inmates of Hunan Chishan Prison, the living conditions of the prison are torturous – the cells have no windows and can barely accommodate a small bed. A blinding light is kept on for 24 hours a day and prisoners are not allowed to cover their eyes from the blinding light with their blankets.

Please uphold Cheng in prayer. Pray that the Lord will give him the strength to endure the harsh conditions and treatment in prison. Pray for Shi and their daughter as they cope with the separation and limited contact with Cheng. Pray that this Christian family will be able to find peace and comfort and hope in the Lord and be encouraged that they are not alone but that the sovereign God is with them.

Continue to also remember and pray for other believers who are also suffering in prison because of their faith in Christ.
