Evangelist Daniel and Prisoner Alert

Pastor Daniel

This man, whom VOM refers to as Evangelist Daniel, is a pastor in Indonesia. In April of 2007, he and 40 other Christian leaders were arrested and imprisoned for simply praying, “Father we pray for the leaders of the madrassa, so their hearts would be open for gospel.” This intercessory prayer, which was offered up on behalf of the Muslim community, has caused Pastor Daniel to be sentenced to 5 years in prison.

We must remember our brothers and sisters who are in prison (Heb 13:3). Last month, I mentioned the situation of Mr. Son and appealed to you all to get involved with Prison Alert, a ministry of Voice of the Martyrs, which keeps track of certain Christians who are imprisoned for their faith and allows you to write letters to them as well as government officials pleading for their release. This ministry is new to me, but I have found it extremely important and an incredible opportunity to be a part of and minister to the body.

In light of my past posts on “Theologians Who Are Ready To Die (Parts I and II),” when I received an emal from Prison Alert asking me to write Pastor Daniel a letter and to spread the word, I just couldn’t help sharing this with you all. Please check out their website and write Evangelist Daniel a letter of encouragement and grace. It is very simple and all you have to pay is postage. A small price to pay to lift up a brother in Christ, especially compared to what those in Hebrews 10:34 gave up:

“For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and abiding one.”

~ Hebrews 10:34 ~
