STRATEGIC TARGETED PRAYER

Targeted Prayer for April, 2009 - Christian human rights attorney Gao Zhisheng

Brenda Myree • Prayer
As part of "Kingdom Seekers Newsletter" each month we will have an area in which we will ask you to "target" your prayers for that month. This is strategic warfare prayer in which we have a specific target in the spirit toward which we will direct our prayers. We are continuing this month to target nations hostile toward Christians, especially nations in which the Bible is restricted or illegal.

This month's prayer is a little out of the ordinary as we are targeting a specific person. I recently received an email from Voice of the Martyrs regarding Christian human rights attorney Gao Zhisheng, who has been missing 50 days. Below is the story and picture we received.

Now, to make things clear, we are not coming against the nations themselves but, the anti-Christ spirit that rules over these nations. To uproot, pull down, destroy and throw down the kingdom of darkness in order to build, plant and establish the Kingdom of God!

STRATEGIC - TARGETED PRAYER

 

Ephesians 6:12:  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
 
Job 22:27-28:  27  "Thou shalt make thy prayer unto Him, and He shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thou vows.  28  Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee:  and the light shall shine upon thy ways."
  
As stated in our intro, we received an urgent email from Voice of the Martyrs  regarding Christian human rights attorney Gao Zhisheng.  To the right is Gao Zhisheng's picture with his son.  Below is the email we received.  We ask that you pray diligently for Gao Zhisheng and his family, for his quick release and being reunited with his family.  Thank you for your prayers.
 
Christian human rights attorney Gao Zhisheng, has now been missing 50 days, and there is increasing concern for his life. He was last seen being hauled away from his home by more than a dozen police officers on February 4. Reports from inside China indicate he is undergoing brutal torture.
 
The situation is critical, and with each day that passes, Gao Zhisheng's life hangs in the balance.
 
Because of Gao's work defending house church Christians and others persecuted in China, the Chinese government wants to silence his voice. ChinaAid president, Bob Fu calls Gao's torture "the most severe persecution in China's modern history." Gao's wife and two children, who have also been abused and tormented by the police, escaped to the U.S. less than two weeks ago. His family is afraid that authorities, furious at their escape, are taking revenge on Gao.
 
ChinaAid and The Voice of the Martyrs, together with Gao Zhisheng's wife and children, call on all Christians and those who value human dignity and justice to speak out on Gao Zhisheng's behalf by signing a petition to free Gao.
