A CMS mission partner who is a lawyer serves persecuted Christians in the Middle East and North Africa using his legal qualifications, skills and expertise. As he advocates for religious freedom across the region, pray for authorities to respect the right to freedom of religion, for charges against Christians to be dropped and convictions overturned, and for churches that are closed to be permitted to reopen.
Pray for P, a new convert, recently rescued by God from addiction and introduced to the Saviour who loves him and gave Himself for him. Pray that he will find fellowship in this country where being a Christian is so very difficult. Pray that he would continue to read and meditate on God’s word and share with others the miracle, both spiritual and physical, which has taken place in his life.
Pray for the team who are building meaningful relationships with people in the Middle East through social media. The Ephraim Project engages Christians worldwide to volunteer their time to befriend people from this region through English conversations online and sharing Jesus with them. Pray for God's leading as they engage in spiritual conversations, and that our team would be a source of encouragement and support during times of local unrest and a guide towards the Father’s comfort. Pray for people in areas where Internet access has recently been cut off and for their connections to be restored.

Pray for J, an Armenian, who has been sentenced to ten years in prison due to Christian activities within the country. Pray he will know God’s protection, and he and his family will experience the Lord’s presence and care at this time. Pray for the Lord’s will to be done regarding his imprisonment.
John 15 v 15. Please pray for the nations of Iran and for the many precious Iranians who have willingly migrated overseas, the many who have been forcefully removed from the country and for those who have experienced the heavy-handed oppression of the law. May the God of justice and peace bring down rulers from their thrones and lift up the humble. Pray AM would be used to strengthen the Iranian Church and help enable outreach and discipleship among Iranian seekers and that sharing the AM resources in Farsi would be a real encouragement.
The Iranian authorities continue to prosecute and imprison Christians for the peaceful practice of their faith. Please pray God’s presence, peace and comfort are a blessing to those who are imprisoned, facing trial, harassed or in fear of being amongst the next to be targeted. Please pray their witness will draw many more people, near and far, to come to know Jesus. Please pray Christians will soon be able to congregate freely for worship and for God’s blessing upon Iran.
