Dear heavenly father, please comfort those who are hurting, remind them that the unseen world in heaven is a place for the faithful ones. You are our protector, provider and those who are being persecuted will not bear more than they can take. Please bring the persecuted Christians in Iran into safety, give them food and shelter, unite them with their families and loved ones, strengthen their faith in you Lord. Forgive those who are hurting them. In Christ name I pray.
