Government Arrests Five Christian Women

[263] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Ruhsari.

Five Christian women, all converts from Islam, were arrested in Iran recently. Ruhsari Kamberi, 65, was arrested shortly before Christmas 2018 and faced 10 days of intense interrogation. She was charged with acting against national security and released on bail. She is required to meet with a religious leader for “instruction” and to be given the opportunity to return to Islam. Little is known about the other four women arrested on the same day. Pray for Ruhsari, who is reportedly very upset by her prison experience, and pray for the peace and comfort of the other women.

  • Thank You, father, for what You are doing in Iran. Thank You for those who consider the riches of Christ to be more valuable than freedom and physical comfort. That suffering for Christ is worth the pain. Encourage our sisters that You have not forgotten them and that You will provide everything they need during these times of trials and separation.

  • Psalm 1
    4 Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
    5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
    6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.
