House Churches Impacted By Economic Crisis

[183] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for House church members.

Iran's house church network faces challenges as a result of the country's struggling economy. With limited access to food and fuel and a job shortage, believers face increasing difficulty in opening their homes to share the gospel with friends and family or disciple new believers. As the economic outlook in Iran remains bleak, pray that our Iranian brothers and sisters in Christ will be a source of hope and light. Pray they will have access to the resources needed to advance the gospel amid the economic challenges.

  • Iran is a major nation that is against anything CHRISTIAN and it is proud of it's stance. Again, FATHER, I pray against the ones who are suppling the money to fuel the world's evil. The three nations, Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan are all starving for the simple necessities of life, yet their governments have money to age war on innocent humans. AMEN!!
