Day of Prayer for the persecuted Church - Iran
Country/Region: Middle East and North Africa, Iran
Give thanks for church growth in Iran and that so many Muslims are becoming Christians there. Pray for them and their church leaders as they face severe persecution for their faith. Ask especially for protection and a quick release for all those who are imprisoned for Christ. Pray for strength and courage for Iranian Christians as they confront discrimination and strict regulation of their activities. Pray for congregations who have recently been banned from worshipping in Farsi, the national language. Pray for church leaders whose activities are closely monitored by spies in the congregation or bugging of their phones.
