Praying for Iran: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - July 15

Today we continue to pray for Iran. Please read pages 465-469. We'll focus on the Challenges for Prayer today. I've also included an encouraging 8 minute video that profiles the underground church in Iran. Be encouraged!

My prayer for today: Lord, we lift up Iran to You today. We lift up the unstable political situation. We know that there are many threats from the current government, but we know that You are using even this challenging time in Iran to reach many for the Gospel. We pray for You to continue to work against corruption and repression yet keep the doors open for the Gospel. Protect the region, especially Israel, from Iranian actions. When the time is right, raise up Christians to be involved in a new Iranian government to make a difference in the entire region. We pray for continued responsiveness by young people as well as revival for those within the churches. Bring unity among the churches. Meet the needs of the church leaders who are working underground. Protect those in prison from any attacks that will not further the Gospel, and give them open doors for the Gospel. Let every church see the open doors You have provided them. Be at work as only You can, in Jesus' name, amen.
