Call to Prayer - Seven Christians Released on Bail, 26 still in Prison

One of the Ladies in my Bible Study works for our Missions Department. She shared an email from Sam Yeghnazar of Elam Ministries. Elam Ministries works to share the Gospel of Christ to people in Iran and beyond.

32 Christians were arrested in Iran on December 26 for their faith. The stories of their arrests, the efforts of their families to free them, and the pleas of children longing to hear from their parents, are all breath taking and heart breaking.

Sam asks for 3 specific areas of prayer:
1. The release of All Christian Prisoners
2. End to demands for all bail
3. Government to stop policy of "religious cleansing"

Please join me in prayer for these Captive Christians, their Faith, and their Families!
