Pray for Amir, Christian Scheduled for Execution

[399] prayers in [24] nations have been posted for Amir.

UPDATE: Amir's execution has been postponed indefinitely after the original two week postponement. For now, this is very good news, as his execution is no longer imminent and there are no plans to schedule it at this time. Amir and his family appreciate your continued prayers.

Iranian authorities have set Aug. 12 as the execution date for a Christian man who is imprisoned outside Tehran. “Amir” was imprisoned two years ago after being caught transporting a truckload of Bibles. Publishing, importing or reprinting Bibles or Christian literature is illegal in Iran. A VOM partner asks that we pray for Amir and his family, for his deliverance and for all Christians living in Iran.
