Sunday Faith Blog...Iranian Christians
My dear Iranian Christian friend tells me that thousands of Muslims are coming to faith in Christ in Iran. I wanted to link my readers to the amazing difficulties they are having there because of their faith and ask you to pray for them:
Arrested for evangelism
In solitary confinement
Arrested for journalism
Armenian-Iranian pastor in prison
Sharing the Word in spite of persecution
Requests for Bibles at "all time high" even back in 2007....
I remember that Christmas Day caused many arrests in Iran of Christians......There have always been Christians in Iran, particularly Armenians, and the government has not done much over the many years, so clamping down now shows us that the faith is growing to the point that the Islamists are getting rougher.
Please keep Iranian Christians in your prayers....for and end to persecution, for a chance to safely witness to interested friends and loved ones, to contrast the love of Jesus with what they know.
And, it's not just Iran, of course......Peaceful Christians did a sit-in in front of Egypt's television station protesting their attacks by Muslims so the Muslims attacked.them....oh, the irony.
Have a wonderful Sunday and be grateful we can worship in public and write as we do.........so far.
