Pray for Pastor Victor and Other Believers Facing Charges in Tehran

[263] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Pastor Victor and friends.

Several Christian men face charges related to evangelism in Tehran, and two are still in prison. Pastor Victor, Amin Nader Afshar and Kavian were arrested at the pastor’s house during a Christmas celebration in 2014 and released on bail in early 2015. Pastor Victor was charged with evangelism, acting against national security and conducting illegal Christian gatherings. Pastor Victor’s son, Ramiel, was then arrested at a picnic in August 2016 along with Amin and three others. Two of the men, Amin and Hadi Askary, are still in prison. All five have been charged with acting against national security and organizing and creating house churches, and Ramiel faces additional charges for propagating the teachings of his father. Pray that the two still in prison will be released, that bail money will be restored and that the case against Pastor Victor will be dropped. Pray that the judge and other officials will rule justly and come to know the truth of Christ that these men are proclaiming.

  • Heavenly Father, give wisdom to those who are trying these cases in the courts. Let them see that they are fighting You, Holy God, and that the fear of the Lord would be upon them to do Your will for Your servants. Set these captives free to do Your work in the nations and in Iraq that all may see that Jesus is Lord to the glory of the Father.
