Lack of enthusiasm for president’s second term, could be dangerous for Christians

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

There is a definite lack of enthusiasm for President Ahmadinejad’s second term: hundreds of thousands took to the streets to complain as they thought he cheated; two former presidents, Hashem Rafsanjani and Mohammad Khatami have publicly opposed him; and even his backer, the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamanei has ordered him to sack his vice President while at the inauguration last week he refused to give Ahmadinejad his cheek to kiss, as he had four years ago. After some awkward hesitation, the Supreme leader allowed his shoulder to be touched. This lack of enthusiasm could be dangerous for the church, as historically weak governments tend to lash out at foreign threats to hide their problems. With Christianity being wrongly perceived as a ‘Western’ religion, this would make the church a target. Prayer can avert this.
Pray for

Wise government for Iran and peace on the streets
Protection for the church against evil plans
All the officials in the new government
