Please pray for our brothers
Christians have been jailed in Saudi Arabia for
worshiping in their own homes according to a recent
report. The news only surfaced this week that the
Christians have been imprisoned for over a month.
Racho of International
Christian Concern says it is no
wonder that Christians there worship in their homes
because of the danger they face.
"In Saudi Arabia there is no church," says the ICC
spokesman. "There is no other place of worship other
than mosques -- so the Christians in Saudi Arabia
only gather at their private homes to worship. And
when they worship, as you can see in this particular
example, they could also be arrested."
Racho was able to talk with one of the female
prisoners by phone and explains that prisoners are
suffering because of lack of proper medical
attention. "They told me that especially the male
prisoners have been assaulted by the Saudi
officials," he shares.
One of the prisoners told Racho that a Saudi
official insulted them by telling them they are
non-believers, animals, and supporters of America.
He adds the Christians are waiting for justice,
which to them means their release from prison and
the ability to worship freely.
