Discover this spiritually thirsty land. Pray across 30 days. Transform the spiritual future of a nation.


Before the Islamic revolution of 1979, there were fewer than 500 Christians from a Muslim background in Iran. In 2020, many estimate there are a million or more. Despite severe persecution, the church is growing rapidly.


Prayer has been a vital part of the story of Iran’s church. In the 1950s a group of believers met every night for four years to pray for Iran’s millions. Today, as persecution continues, the need for prayer is as great as ever. With faithful intercession, Iran can become a strategic missionary-sending nation to the entire Middle East and beyond.


Iran 30’s short, easy-to-read prayer topics will help you play your part in the beautiful story God is writing for Iran and beyond.

Iran is back in the headlines after President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian, and six others were killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

Iran is officially in a five-day period of mourning. But many ordinary Iranians are not truly grieving. It is widely accepted that Raisi - known as the "Butcher of Tehran" - was responsible for the execution of thousands of political prisoners in the 1980s.
