January 2013 - Maryam Zargaran is arrested and sentensec to prison for Following Jesus in Iran

Maryam Naghash Zargaran is a 36 year old Christian believer who was arrested in the winter of 2013 for her faith and arbitrarily charged with .action against national security.. She was summoned to the intelligence office on January 6, 2013, where she was put under temporary arrest for three days. After initial interrogations, she was transferred to Evin prison and her case was sent to the Revolutionary Court.

An initial court in Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Courts, sentenced her to four years in prison for .propagating against the Islamic regime and collusion intended to harm national security.. Later, an appeals court approved this sentence. Ms. Zargaran was instructed to report to Evin prison to serve her sentence. She reported to Evin prison on July 15, 2013, and has remained there ever since.

Iranian judicial and security authorities have repeatedly tried to make up false allegations against Christian converts to pressure them and to distort public opinion about them. Most of these false allegations are political and argue that house-churches are actually political groups which are in contact with or spy for foreign countries like England and Israel. In most of the Christian cases, Iranian authorities try to downplay the religious aspect of these cases and make them appear as political cases, in order to unmercifully sentence them and avoid international pressure.

Remember those in prison, as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrews 13:3, NIV

Romans 8:38-39
(New Living Translation)

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels can't, and the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away.

39 Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39, nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ

The church in Iran needs the powerful intercessory prayers of the saints worldwide.
The following are some prayer points on behalf of the persecuted church in Iran:

  1. Pray that the Lord would cover Pastor Hamid Pourmand, his family and other Iranian Church leaders with His grace, goodness and mercies. Pray that they would feel His presence, and the Holy Spirit would comfort and strengthen them in their Christian walk. Pray for God's angels to surround the Pourmands and other persecuted saints in Iran, so that their bodies, minds and spirits would be kept safe.
  2. Pray that the Lord would give wisdom and boldness to Christian leaders and followers of Christ in Iran. Pray for a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit upon them.
  3. Pray that the authorities in Iran would administer true justice, and that they would come to know the Truth that sets everyone free. Pray that the authorities remove restrictions on Iranian Christians, their leaders, and their church services.
  4. Pray that the Lord would reveal Himself to many Iranians through dreams and visions and that many would be born by the Holy Spirit and become children of God.
  5. Pray that more evangelistic resources would become available for multitudes of Iranians who hunger for the saving Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

PS: Under Islamic law enforced in Iran, a Muslim who converts to Christianity faces the death penalty.

"Others were tortured and refused to be released, so that they might gain a better resurrection... they were stoned; they were sawn in two; they were put to death by the sword... the world was not worthy of them." -- Hebrews 11: 37-38.
