Hebrews 13:3 "Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body."
Christians are suffering intense persecution around the world because of their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. We hope to raise the awareness of the needs of these persecuted Christians and support them with prayer and letters.
One of the leading web sites drawing attention to the pllight of Christians worldwide is Prisoner Alert (opens in a new window and please bookmark). You can check their site daily for updates and new profiles. The parent ministry, Voice of the Martyrs, maintains an excellent blog.
Berean Church supports Prisoner Alert and similar sites by encouraging you to visit and bookmark these resources, and to pray for the individual prisoners. Letters are a great encouragement to Christian prisoners. The Prisoner Alert site provides you with an online letter-writing system consisting of selectable phrases that have been carefully translated into the language of a specific prisoner. Berean Church encourages all our readers to send a letter to a prisoner. If you wish to supplement the Prisoner Alert letter with your own words in English, Prisoner Alert provides some writing guidelines here.
A sample of prisoner profiles (courtesy of Prisoner Alert) is provided below, by country. Please bookmark the Prisoner Alert site and check frequently for updates and new profiles.
