Christianity continues to grow in Iran

It is encouraging that many are coming to faith in Christ in Iran and believers would value prayers for protection as many house churches are under threat of attack by the authorities.

Many were detained late last year and have not yet been released.  Pray especially for a man called Sina Moloudian, aged 26, who was arrested in Esfahan in Iran in January in front of his parents.  Officials confiscated his Christian materials and allegedly beat him before placing him in custody’.[1]

Also an older man named Ishmaeil Maghrebinejad aged 64 was arrested in Shiraz in Iran in January and released on bail.  ‘Officials confiscated his phone and laptop.  He has already survived a previous attempt on his life’.[2]

Please pray for God’s strength and protection for imprisoned believers and their families.  Pray also for wisdom for believers who have been released and are unable to meet with other fellow believers.
