A few months ago, I heard about a pastor who was being prosecuted for declaring his faith in Iran. He is being charged with Apostasy, for renouncing his Muslim faith for Christianity.
His name is Yousef Nadarkhani. He is a father, husband and friend. I feel a sense of responsibility to pray for him just like the saints did for the apostles in the bible (Acts 12:5 – 11). The saints prayed and the Angel of God broke down the chains and set Peter free without the knowledge of the guards.
We can do the same now, that same power is available to us. Let's pray for him so that he won’t end up like Stephen. I read an article last night which is here and the author couldn’t have written a better charge to us Christians. We can’t stay silent; we can’t let this man die unjustly. Please lets pray, God can do it, God WILL do it.
