Christians to Pray for 'Secret Believers' in Islamic Countries

by Michelle Vu from The Christian Post

"This year, which marks the 10th anniversary of The International Day of Prayer , our focus is on ‘secret believers,’" wrote Dr. Carl A. Moeller, president of Open Doors USA, in a letter. Secret believers are Christians who have left Islam to follow Jesus in countries where Islam is the dominant religion ... Christians should realize that "[i]f we lead people there to Jesus, they will be shunned by their societies and their family is honor-bound to kill them – that is the real situation," said the Open Doors founder Brother Andrew. Six of the top ten spots on Open Doors’ 2007 Persecution Hot Spots list were countries where Islam is the major religion: Saudi Arabia (2nd), Iran (3rd), Somalia (4th), Maldives (5th), Yemen (6th), and Afghanistan (10th).
