Child Witnesses Parents’ Arrest in Iran + +

Friends, Iranian believers are requesting prayer for a Christian family following a raid on their home in Mashhad, north-east Iran. Earlier this month, several intelligence agents raided the home of Amir Taleipour (39) and his wife Mahnaz Harati (36). They then arrested Amir and Mahnaz in front of their seven-year-old daughter.

Amir and Mahnaz have been held in detention since their arrest. They have not been allowed to communicate with family members, nor permitted access to legal assistance. Their daughter is now being cared for by family members.

Iranian Christian ministry leaders say they have come to expect increased numbers of arrests of Christians in Iran around Christmas, but that the situation in 2018 is more severe than in recent years.

Please pray that God will comfort Amir and Mahnaz young daughter and keep her from anxiety and fear.

Pray that Amir and Mahnaz will be allowed to communicate with their family, hire a lawyer, and that they will be released soon.

Pray that Amir and Pray that the Lord will comfort and strengthen Amir and Mahnaz to persevere and be faithful witnesses of Christ.

Pray that Christians in Iran will be protected, stay alert and not be intimidated by state security.

Pray that State security will stop targeting citizens on account of their religious beliefs.
