Imprisoned Christian Dangerously Depressed

[218] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Depressed Christian.

A family in Iran is worried about their mother, a Christian woman imprisoned for her faith. Mary was arrested earlier this year for her Christian activities. On a recent visit to see her mother, Mary’s daughter noticed her mother couldn’t answer questions, responding only with one-word answers of either “yes” or “no.” The daughter told VOM partners that her mother is depressed and is not her normal self. She is worried about her mother and asks for prayer. Pray for Mary and for her family.
