A heartfelt plea from a courageous woman living in a country where it is dangerous to be a Christian, deep in the countryside: “I came because we need Bibles. Do you have Bibles for me?” she asks cautiously, her eyes filled with longing. “I know you have previously delivered Bibles to my country,” she said, gazing intently. “Do you still do that?”

She represents countless others in similar circumstances, longing for the Word of God. How can a Christian grow spiritually, with no Bible? Today is the International Day of Prayer for persecuted church.

Please pray for Christians around the world who face persecution for their faith in Jesus.
