( - Saudi Arabian and Yemeni security forces have rescued Lydia (6) and Anna (4) Hentschel, German sisters who were taken hostage in Yemen last June, along with their parents, brother and four other Christians.

Security officials found the young Christians in a disputed border region between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The German foreign minister has reportedly described the sisters as in "relatively good health."

They were scheduled to be transported back to Germany on May 19. There continues to be great concern about the safety and condition of the believers who remain kidnapped, including the girls' parents. It is reportedly presumed their brother, Simon (2), has died. (Source: Compass Direct)

Pray for help and comfort for Lydia and Anna. Pray that as they heal from the terrible ordeal they have endured, they will know the Lord's love in their lives. Pray for protection and health for the other believers being held captive. Pray for strength for the loved ones of these believers in these uncertain times -- particularly amid the recent news regarding Simon. To post a prayer of solidarity with those affected by this kidnapping, please visit our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall at
