Pray for Christian Students Arrested for Work with a Church Ministry

[286] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Students.

Iranian authorities arrested 21 students in May for their involvement with house churches. A VOM partner in Iran requests prayer for the protection and comfort of the students as well as their families and loved ones. The students are all part of a ministry that is seeking to transform Iran for Christ. This ministry trains and equips the students in courses such as missions work and the persecuted church. Please pray for these students and for their families.
