The Voice of the Martyrs’ Prisoneralert.com website lists Christians around the world who are in prison for their faith. The site provides a way for readers to write letters to the prisoners and to officials of their countries.
The story of each prisoner’s arrest and imprisonment are also available on the site. Can you visit the site and choose one or more prisoners to pray for? Some of the Christians have been in prison for more than 10 years, so praying for them may be a very long-term commitment.
However, several prisoners were released during the past year.
“One of [the] things I enjoy doing is crossing out names I have been praying [for on] my prisoner list,” wrote Marilene, a commenter on The Voice of the Martyrs’ Facebook page. “God is gracious.”
But sometimes ex-prisoners are not safe from further problems with the authorities. The Prisoneralert.com site lists the names and stories of released prisoners,too. You can pray for their protection and for their ministries to bring many to Christ.
