Praying for Iran: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - July 14

Today we begin 3 days of prayer for a country where God is strongly at work. Massive numbers of Iranians have been coming to Jesus! Be encouraged at how God is at work here. I've personally known some Iranian believers, and God has strongly anointed them with boldness and a spirit of prayer that cannot be described but only experienced. Today, read pages 464-469. We'll focus on the  Answers to Prayer and praise God today!

My prayer for today: Oh Lord, it is so awesome to see what You are up to in Iran. It is so amazing to know that You have dramatically increased the number of Christians since the 1979 revolution. Oh Lord, having heard some of the stories I know the creative ways You are reaching behind these borders for Your glory, restoring the ancient Persian church to new levels of fruitfulness. Lord, we thank You that people grow more and more disillusioned with their government and hungry for authenticity and truth. We thank You for the amazing growth in ministry to Iranians and for the risks that the hand couriers are taking. Oh Lord, continue to fuel the growth in Iran. Be with those who are persecuted for their faith and guide them to worship You in spirit and truth even in the midst of their trials. We pray especially for Pastor Nadarkhani and thank You for the witnessing opportunities You are giving him even in prison. We rejoice with the angels over the new believers in Iran today. In Jesus' name, amen.
