How you can aid the persecuted

RICHMOND, Va. (BP)–To take the first steps toward becoming an advocate for the persecuted:
— Pray. For specific daily prayer requests that often focus on Christians living their faith in hostile areas, connect to CompassionNet on the Southern Baptist International Mission Board’s Web site (http://www.imb.org) or call the IMB PrayerLine at (800) 395-PRAY.
— Read “Their Blood Cries Out” by Paul Marshall (Word, 1997) and “In the Lion’s Den” by Nina Shea (Broadman & Holman, 1997) for information about the persecuted and how to aid them.
— Call the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (615) 244-2495 or check its Internet site — http://www.erlc.com — for help in obtaining these books and other resources on Christian persecution.
