Lord willing, I will be starting a series of posts on country profiles soon. This will give some information about countries (like North Korea, China, Pakistan) the consistently persecute Christians.
This may help you to understand some of the reasons Christians are persecuted and oppressed and help you in praying for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. ( Hebrews 13:3)
