Today we are inviting the Body of Christ to stand with us in prayer over the trial for Andrew Brunson. Andrew is an American pastor & our friend from Izmir, Turkey, who has been jailed over supposed connections to the group accused of organizing a failed military coup in July 2016.
The charges against Andrew are completely baseless, and Andrew’s lawyer, Ismail Cem Halavurt recently told Reuters, “there is evidence that shows Brunson was arrested due to his faith.” Cece Heil with the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) told CBN News, “they have no specific evidence that Pastor Brunson committed any crime. The fact specifically that he’s a Christian and a Christian Pastor is what they are equating as terrorism and the crimes that he has committed.”
At the Crossroads asks us to pray for four things: freedom, peace, politics, and salvation.
