The Iranian government supresses Christianity in fear that it might replace the Islamic way of life. Under sharia (Islamic) law, Christians who evangelise to Muslims can be thrown in prison or have their churches closed. Christian media is monitored by the government and believers using such websites or channels are tracked down. Despite this, the church in Iran continues to grow.
Pray: That those imprisoned for their faith in Iran won’t feel alone but connected to the global body of Christ.
