"Prayer request for christians sentenced to lashing"


Dear John and doves, please pray for these believers who are facing lashing. if this is posted on Monday, we still have today making 3 possible days of prayer before the sentence is carried out. Dear God have mercy and deliver these family of Yours.

I would to God that they are not lashed, but if they are, I cannot imagine how awful that is. Pray please as God leads you for their protection, healing, strength, witness, however God leads.  Thank you doves. The believers need one another.

Father God, You are good and Your judgements are just. Please reveal Your Son from heaven now and give the word for Him to return. This wicked world does not even believe You exist or care. Please donít let this go on, for the sake of Your name, please send Jesus and deliver and gather the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Come back Lord Jesus.

Quote from the article:

According to the British Daily Mail, four Christians in Iran will get 80 lashes each for drinking wine during a communion service and possessing a satellite antenna. This comes as another reminder that Iran, after electing Hassan Rohani as president and despite promises to expand civil rights, still has a persecution policy carried out by the Ayatollahs.

As the Daily Mail reported, the men were sentenced on October 6 and given their verdict on October 20 with ten days to appeal the sentence after breaking the theocracyís laws.
