I’ve been praying for Turkey for 25 years. I want truth to come out.” ~ U.S. Pastor Andrew Brunson (during his opening statement) After only one day of testimony, the outcome of the first hearing for U.S. Pastor Andrew Brunson has not gone as we hoped. Late on Monday, April 16, a Turkish judge ordered a continuation of the Brunson trial with the second hearing scheduled for May 7. In another devastating blow, the judge sent Pastor Andrew back to the prison where he was originally held. He will have to wait out the next three weeks in a grim prison notorious for its overcrowded conditions where almost two dozen prisoners are held in one cell. As the Body of Christ, we are called to stand with Pastor Andrew, bearing each other’s burdens. Open Doors invites you to write and share your prayer on the Prayer Wall we created specifically for Pastor Brunson. (If you’ve already written a prayer, you can leave another and read the powerful prayers of hundreds of other Christians.) “Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” ~ Romans 8:26 https://www.opendoorsusa.org/christian-persecution/stories/join-open-doors-in-praying-for-u-s-pastor-andrew-brunson/ Where will you spend ETERNITY?
