90 Christians in prison, just for their faith

An estimated 90 Christians are in a prison in Iran because of their witness to Jesus Christ. 

At least twelve have been sentenced, usually for the crime of ‘working against national security’. The sentences range from one year, to eight. The rest are believed to be in pre-trial detention. For over thirty of these prisoners there is very little information.

A list of all the available names can be found here: https://www.elam.com/article/persecuted-not-forsaken

May we suggest you take time this week to lift each name before God. These Christian prisoners need supernatural strength to endure their ordeal and to remain a faithful witness to Christ.

Pray for Christian prisoners

  • To be upheld
  • To be a faithful witness
  • To be able to forgive
