Rouhani's presidency, facing criticism

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

President Rouhani is facing severe criticism from conservatives.
The understanding was that Rouhani would revive Iran’s economy by getting sanctions lifted as a part of a nuclear deal with the West.
The deal has been signed and is in effect, but the economy has not yet revived.
Investors are interested, but there is still caution, because though UN sanctions have lifted, the US has kept severe restrictions in place. As all major trade deals operate in dollars, this has made international business, especially in Europe, cautious about investing in Iran. It is not surprising as penalties for sanction breaking are high. In 2014 the French bank BNP Paribas was fined nearly $9 billion by the US for its dealing with Iran, Sudan, and Cuba.
So there is pressure on President Rouhani and the Bible tells us to pray for leaders.
Pray for

Iran’s economy to improve
Wisdom for President Rouhani
Improvement for Christians and other minorities
