By becoming a “Voice” for Persecuted Christians you are entering into the vital and important ministry of “intercession and solidarity” with those who suffer for their faith in Christ Jesus.
As Christian prisoners are “doing time for God”, so you will be spending time, praying, writing and entering into a partnership with the Almighty. You will be “doing time for God”, and sharing His heart and burden for those who suffer because they love Him.
The principles and purposes of this letter-writing ministry mean that you will be endeavouring to protect the rights of prisoners and at the same time, being the voice of the persecuted church. Christian prisoners have the right to be heard; the right to be valued; the right to be defended; and the right to be supported.
The reward for your endeavour will be what many prisoners say. “Whilst doing time for God”, we praise Him that we are not forgotten.” Even in the most horrific conditions and suffering, there can be dignity. This is what you will give to a fellow believer in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Letters show officials that there are people who know and care what happens to prisoners. Their conditions may be improved as a result. If the authorities think no one cares, the Christian may be imprisoned with dangerous criminals, abused, deprived of food or denied rights to their mail, parcels and visits.
Don’t underestimate the power of your letter, your letter will show the authorities that there are people out there who know and care what happens to each prisoner. Their conditions may be improved as a result.
