I was so thankful to see that the story of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani of Iran was headlining on CNN. People around the world have been speaking out against this great injustice and now it is getting international attention! Leaders in the US, UK, Germany and other countries are speaking out against this legal, religious and human rights violation.

While it is wonderful that this case is receiving international attention, it is vital that we continue to pray for this dear brother in Christ. He still faces execution at any time. He has a wife and two sons (ages 7 & 9).

2 Corinthians 12:26 tells us “If one part suffers, every part suffers.” My heart aches for this man and his family. I could not imagine being put in this situation. He had the opportunity to deny Christ four times and he refused each time. He has stood strong through persecution.

Please continue to pray for this dear brother in Christ! Pray that he would continue to stand strong. Please also pray for his wife and two young sons- that they would continue to trust the Lord and remain strong despite this horrible situation. Thank you so much for joining us in prayer!
