Please Join Us Today in Prayer
We believe in the power of prayer to heal sickness, to provide for families, to surround believers with a hedge of protection, and to change lives for the better. God’s Word tells us that all believers can go boldly unto the throne of grace in times of need, whether those needs be our own or those of others. Please join us in praying for others around the world.
Who We’re Praying For Today
Congo: It’s been reported that an estimated 90 Christians have been murdered in a five-month period. Pray for provision and comfort for the children and the elderly these deaths leave behind.
Iran: Pray for Iranian Christian convert Ibrahim Firouzi who has been sent to the remote city of Sarbaz, where will serve two years of internal exile over 1,000 miles away. Ibrahim was released from prison on October 26th and was given the time needed to prepare for exile. He had not seen his home since August 2013, and his mother passed away during the interim. His combined prison and exile sentence is the result of having faced national security charges because of his faith. Read more on International Christian Concern.
IRAN: 'THEY COULDN'T STOP MY FATHER"
Rashin Soodmand was 13 years old when her father, Pastor Hossein Soodmand, was executed in Iran for the crime of apostasy. His body was quietly buried in an unmarked grave in a part of the local cemetery reserved for “the cursed.”
Yet only three days later, Rashin wrote a letter to God promising to follow Christ boldly, just as her father had — even if it meant great sacrifices. Today she is living out that promise, including ministering to the church inside Iran.
