Increased Gas Prices Could Hinder Christian Work

[193] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Iranian front-line workers.

Gas prices in Iran increased by as much as 300 percent in November, and the government has also limited the amount of fuel that can be purchased for each private vehicle. While transportation costs have tripled, salaries remain the same. A Christian leader in Iran has asked for prayer as he tries to determine the best way of continuing ministry work under the current conditions. Pray for Iran, for those suffering as a result of the nation’s poor economy and for the wisdom of believers as they seek to remain faithful amid these difficulties.

  • Father God money is failing in Iran and your children the church depends on you for survival. Help Christian leaders who are faced with with economic challenges to look up to you as a provider and a good Father. Christ redeemed them from the curse of lack and poverty translating them into abundance of the great God in heavenly places.

  • It must be very difficult to be a witness for CHRIST in this godless country with it's policy of total control. I understand the lack of spiritual development in this country, so I am asking GOD to give these Christians great understanding in their praying ability. This is something that is vital to their standing strong under Iran' s control.

  • Father, what we in our country taken for granted - like an abundant supply of fuel at a relatively low cost - Christians in other countries pray for. Hear and answer their prayers and ours, as well. Despite this latest hardship, enable our suffering Iranian brothers and sisters in-Christ to be faithful and obedient to Jesus and bring glory to His name.
