Prayer for journalists detained in China PC: Getty Images

Lord, we are concerned about journalists being arrested in China. We specifically pray for Australian journalists Cheng Lei and Yang Hengjun, who have been detained since August and for over two years, respectively. We also pray for Bloomberg journalist and Chinese citizen Haze Fan, who was arrested in December. Heavenly Father, we know this world is a complicated, broken place. Nations rise against each other. In these cases, deteriorating relations between China and Australia are involved. These journalists are accused of spying. Lord, we do not know the full circumstances; however, we know that you do (Hebrews 4:13). Our concern is that innocent people not be mistreated. So, Lord, we ask you to comfort and meet with these journalists in their imprisonment. We pray that their true condition will be apparent when people are able to visit or talk with them. We pray that the justice system will be fair and swift for them. We pray for truth to come to light. We place our hope in you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
