Prayer alert: Court hearing imminent for Maryam and Marzieh

A court hearing for Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh -- Iranian Christians who were arrested by security forces in March 2009 --  is scheduled for Tuesday, April 13, according to Elam Ministries.

MARYAM AND MARZIEH Maryam and Marzieh were arrested on March 5, their apartment was searched, and their belongings confiscated. It appears that their only "crime" is their steadfast commitment to Christ. On November 18, they were conditionally released from the notorious Evin Prison. Although they have been receiving medical treatment for the past five months, they remain weak and suffer from various illnesses. Yet, despite their frailties, they are determined to be faithful to the Lord and speak the truth in court whatever the consequence or personal cost.

Upon their conditional release in November, Maryam and Marzieh stated, "Words are not enough to express our gratitude to the Lord and to His people who have prayed and worked for our release." As they prepare for the hearing tomorrow, please continue to lift them to the Lord in prayer.

In particular, please pray that:

- The peace of God will protect their hearts and minds and keep them safe.

- They will completely recover from their illnesses and be strong -- physically, mentally and spiritually.

- They will know the presence of God in the midst of their trial.

- They will be set free.

  1. Maryam and Marzieh have been in my prayers daily since they were arrested, that God may protect them and keep them strong
    Also that the perpetrators will be touched by their strong faith that only God can give

    Father God in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth we loosed Your perfect work to be done through these daughters of God, we loosed that on earth as it is loosed in heaven and we bind all of the powers/principalities/spirits/
    and othe forces of evil that would try and set themselves up against Jehovah's perfect will.they are bound on earth as they are bound in heaven....God's word does not return void unto Him, rather it accomplishes and flourishes and prospers in that for which it was sent...amen love and hugs from cheryl anne gilpin in maynard, massachsetts....
