Dear Father in Heaven, pour out your Grace in great power over these precious children of yours. Warm the hearts of those in authority in Iran, so they will stop persecuting our brothers and sisters in that country. By your mercy these Christians will continue to keep you, Jesus, in their hearts and live in the joy of your salvation. In your precious name, Jesus, we come before your throne and give you the honor and glory. And we thank you for the good and the bad in our lives.
