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.

As we watch the latest crisis in the Middle East unfold, Christians in Iran are on their knees praying for peace.

One Christian in western Iran, who lives near where the Iranian rockets were launched, said, “I heard each rocket being fired. It was so loud and frightening. The sky turned red for what seemed like hours. I prayed that God would have mercy on all of us. That no one would perish and that the war would not escalate.”
