Lord God, majestic in power, we pray that today Your precious family in Iran may know You as the Father of compassion and God of all comfort.
Please strengthen and protect your family which faces persecution and hardship for the sake of Jesus.
Give wisdom to Your church in Iran, as they meet both publicly and in secret.
Encourage those who have been detained or imprisoned, and who are now separated from their loved ones. Please guard their hearts and minds with Your peace which transcends all understanding.
We pray for believers from a Muslim background who often face the greatest challenges. Please help each one to walk closely with You, to find fellowship with other secret Christians and to grow strong in Your Word of truth.
Thank you for each and every believer in Christ in Iran: may Your love surround them and Your power protect them from the evil one.
In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
