You are invited to join the global prayer movement for Iran.

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.


Reaching Iran

There are tens of thousands of Persian-speaking refugees in Greece, and trained Iranian Christians have a heart to love and serve them while reaching them with the Gospel.

Last month, 250 Persian-speaking refugees attended two evangelistic worship nights in Greece where many of them heard the Gospel explained in their own language for the first time.

Right now, 13 Iranian youth leaders are taking part in an eight-week training program in the Iran region. These emerging leaders represent nine churches serving 80+ youth. They would greatly value your prayers.

The group recently started their training with a one-week residential module.

Suffering But Growing Church

Thank you for praying for the Iranian church over Easter. Wonderfully, a number of Iranians put their trust in Jesus at special Easter gatherings. One of them was teenager Parvaneh, who lives in a country in the Iran region.

Parvaneh's parents are mature Christians and graduates of Elam's three-month course. They were heartbroken that their daughter's heart was hard to the Gospel. Having been counseled by their pastor, they persevered in prayer.
