Arrested Iranians out of prison, but not free

Elam Ministries is reporting that most of the Iranian Christians arrested in the wave of arrests over the Christmas season are either out of prison, or have been offered release on the condition of very high bail—$250,000 for one believer.

While they are out of prison, they are not free, says Elam. They are closely watched, and their phones are tapped. If there is any suspicion of them engaging in any Christian activity, they risk arrest and imprisonment again. There are also court trials. The Christians do not know the date, the charge or, often, the sentence. They live in intimidation and uncertainty and with their memories of prison—solitary confinement, constant questioning, insults, beatings, threats of execution and lies that others have betrayed them.

They need our prayer.

Please pray for:
  • Grace for released Christians to not just get through each day but to be able to live each day to the fullest knowing they can cast all their cares on Jesus (1 Peter 5:7)
  • Wisdom regarding their future
  • Healing for their memories
