Father, thank You for the commitment to Jesus of these dear brothers and sisters in Iran. May they know that You are with them even when they don’t feel like it. May they find encouragement and strength in You. Please provide for their needs and protect them. Help them to grow in faith and trust you fully. As they allow Jesus to live through them, may others see Christ and be saved. I praise You, God, because you are already at work to bring good out of these bad and difficult circumstances.
