To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
Christians in Iran are concerned that legislation recently approved by Parliament could mean more arrests and harsher sentences for religious minorities. Pray this legislation will not be implemented.
Pray for seven Christian converts arrested in Bushehr, Iran last year who were given harsh sentences in July. The four men, Sam, Sasan, Habib and Pooriya were jailed; Maryam, Marjan and Fatemeh were fined.
Pray for the release of nine Iranian Christians arrested in co-ordinated raids in Tehran and two nearby cities in July.
Ask God to strengthen His church in Eritrea. The country is home to more than 100,000 evangelical believers. Pray that the Holy Spirit will move among and through them powerfully.
Pray for ‘John’ and ‘Genet’, a married couple in Eritrea who have each spent time in harsh prisons for their faith. Thank God that our ministry partner has provided food and shelter for them through their local church – and they now have a child.
Please pray for the many believers currently behind bars in Eritrea: some of them have already endured many years of inhumane treatment in appalling conditions.
Fifteen Christians were arrested in Eritrea in April: they were sent to a prison camp. Ask God to sustain them and their families, and pray they will be reunited.
'Let us be on the side of those who sit in jails and are sentenced to death for their faith. Let us pray for them and help them'.
