Three Christian Converts Sentenced to Prison

[227] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Asghar, Mohammadreza, and Friend.

Three Christian converts from Islam were sentenced recently to six months in prison because of their Christian faith and activities. On Sept. 16, 2019, Asghar Salehi and Mohammadreza Rezaei, along with another Christian convert, were summoned to court and issued six-month prison sentences for “propaganda against the system through promoting Zionist Christianity.” Intelligence officials had arrested Asghar and Mohammadreza in September 2018 after raiding their homes. Asghar was blindfolded and interrogated for three days before being transferred to another prison, where he was held for eight more days until being released on bail. Mohammadreza was also released on bail. Pray for these men and their families.

  • Lord please bless these believers and their families. If still in prison may the word move mightily by their hand. If free may the word be spread throughout the country. Shield them with your grace, cover them with your protection and by the hands of the evil one for their sake. Give them peace in the precious name of Jesus Christ.
