Iranian Secret Police Harrassed Christians before Christmas....

Before Christmas,many Iranian Christians were summoned to the Information Ministry (Islamic Secret Police) and forced to sign written guarantees not to celebrate with Christmas gatherings and New Year celebrations.Also, as reported by the Farsi Christian News, some heads of house churches in Tabriz, Sanandaj, and Shiraz were summoned to the Information Ministry, and have been accused of spying for the foreigners.With severe violence they are forced not to have any contact with the other heads of Iranian churches, both inside or outside of the country.
Pray for divine protection over all Christians in Iran and especially their leaders.
Pray that God will perform a miracle for Iranian Christians and they will be able to celebrate the miracle of Christ’s birth without government harassment.
Pray that the Gospel will go forth in Iran despite the government’s attempts to stamp it out.
As in the days of Noah...
