Release International Prayer Shields: Iran

Iran


Praise God for the early release of Asghar Salehi, Mohammadreza Rezaei and another unnamed Christian in Iran. The three have been arrested twice in recent years and convicted of ‘propaganda against the state’.



Iran

Thank God for the powerful witness of Nasser Navard Goltapeh, arrested in 2016 in Iran and serving a ten-year sentence. He remains ‘confident in all hardships’. Pray that his family will come to know Christ.



Iran

Ebrahim Firouzi is currently spending two years in internal exile in southern Iran, as punishment for his church activities. Ask God to protect him in an area which is a hotspot for Islamist militants.



Iran

Release supports the families of Christian prisoners in Iran, as well as training house church leaders and supplying Christian literature. Please pray that God will continue to provide for this work.



Iran

Rising persecution of Christians has been linked to an increase in the number of people converting from Islam and growth in house churches. Ask God to multiply His church in Iran.



Iran

Release contacts say that a crackdown on the Farsi-speaking church in the past four years is driving many Christian leaders overseas. Pray that God will raise up new leaders in Iran.



Iran

Pray for Christians in Iran amid continuing tensions following the US killing of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani. Pray that their witness will help build religious tolerance.
