Prayer for persecuted Christians.....

     As followers of Christ, it is our duty and honor to pray for Christians around the world who are being persecuted:  afflicted and harassed for their faith in Jesus Christ!  Present Truth Ministries gives updates and info on what is going on around the world. We, as Christians, need to be aware of what our Christian brothers and sisters are enduring and remember to lift them up in prayer.
     We are so blessed in this country where we can speak freely about God and His Word, read our Bibles  and gather together to worship God! Not all are so blessed as we....We need to remember to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ that they may be strong in the Lord and in the trials they are experiencing for their public profession of faith.
     Here are some specific people to pray for who are presently imprisoned in Shiraz:

     1. Vahid Roghanghir
     2. Shourosh Saraiee
     3. Eskander Rezae'e
     4. Mehdi Amrooni
     5. Shahin Lahooti
     6. Masoud Rezae'e

Jesus told us in Matthew 5:10-12, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

Please join me in praying! And also check out the Present Truth Ministries website. Thank you!
