Pray for Pastor Zhang Shaojie who was Transferred to another Prison for “Concentrated Education”

Pastor Zhang was the pastor of state-sanctioned church, Nanle County Christian Church in Henan. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison for “gathering a crowd to disrupt public order” in 2014 after he sent a petition to authorities regarding a land dispute involving his church.

When family members visited him in Dec 2019, they reported dramatic changes to his personality and his mental was failing. It was recently reported that Pastor Zhang has been transferred to Zhengzhou City to serve the remaining 5 years of his sentence. And he will be sent for treatment referred to as “concentrated education”. Only one visitor per month will be permitted, subject to proof of relationship with Pastor Zhang.

Pray for Pastor Zhang’s mental, emotional and physical healing and well-being. Pray that he will be given proper medical treatment whilst in prison and his health will improve.

May he find comfort and strength in the Lord such that he will not feel alone, abandoned or forgotten. Pray that he will continue to fight the good fight, keep the faith and focus on finishing the race well, knowing that there is in store for him a crown of righteousness which the Lord will award to him (2 Tim 4:7-8). Pray for his early release.
