Remember the prisoners

"Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body" (Hebrews 13:3)

One brother in Christ we can remember in prayer is Pastor "Bike" Mingxuan. Pastor "Bike," known for traveling thousands of miles across China on a bicycle to evangelize, was arrested by Chinese police just two days before the Olympics began. He was the inspiration behind a unique wrist band project which encouraged people to pray for China, and has resulted in more than 800,000 bands to be circulated.

According to Voice of the Martyrs, Pastor Bike and other Chinese evangelists had been repeatedly harassed by Chinese officials leading up to his arrest. Please pray for the release of Pastor Bike and his wife. And in this Olympic year, please remember the prisoners.
