Pray for Iranian believers today!

Elam Ministries is requesting prayer on behalf of Iranian believers.

Iranian Christians Vahik Abrahamian, Farshid Fathi, Abrahim Firouzi, Masoud Delijani and Noorollah Ghabitzadeh are still detained, and the situation of Youcef Nadarkhani’s death sentence for apostasy remains unclear.

Elam says that it’s been rumoured that Vahik Abrahamian is suffering from ill health and has been denied basic necessities like a toothbrush, but beyond that little is known of the suffering going on.

Please pray for:
  • More news from those in prison
  • The families of those in prison
Additionally, the summer months mean Christians are on the move, usually visiting relatives, says Elam.

Christians are going to the Iran Region, and their families and friends in Iran are travelling to Christians in other countries. This is a time when the gospel is shared, and its authority begins to move through family networks. Many Diaspora churches have energetic evangelistic programs to reach their fellow countrymen.

Please pray for:
  • Christians on the move to share the gospel
  • Christians to be equipped with New Testaments and Christian literature
  • Iranians on the move to hear the gospel
