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.

Our hearts are breaking for Turkey and Syria. Two massive earthquakes on February 6th have caused unthinkable devastation. The death toll is in the thousands and is rapidly rising. Countless families are homeless or displaced, sheltering outside in freezing conditions.
There are many Iranian Christian refugees in Turkey and many Persian-speaking churches. Having connected with some of the pastors and leaders, I know they are witnessing deep suffering.
Suffering But Growing Church
