Four Christians in Iran have been sentenced to receive 80 lashes a piece after being caught taking communion wine in a home. Consuming alcohol is a violation of the law in that country in spite of the fact that it was part of a Christian ritual.

Authorities in Iran are currently conducting raids upon the houses of suspected Christians trying to stem the ‘revival’ type of exponential growth of Christianity in that Middle Eastern nation.

For more information see my article on this story on my Answers For The faith blog.

Response: Please pray for these 4 brothers. 80 lashes is just about as close to a death sentence as one could get. What a travesty. Meanwhile the American administration hasn’t commented on this case.

Also there are many other Christians who are currently being persecuted in Iranian prisons for their faith. Many have been given the option to be released if only they would deny their faith in Jesus and proclaim their allegiance to Islam.            *Top

-International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church –sponsored by Open Doors. Please pray for Christians under persecution around the world.

Remember Iraqi Christians in particular and others in the Middle East. Also pray for the Christian community in China and Pakistan where they are supposed to have a little freedom but really don’t.

Remember also to pray for the hidden revivals going on in Iran and North Korea. Christian converts in those countries are under a sentence of death when discovered.

Thousands have been demonstrating in the streets of the major cities in that country calling for all Christians to be expelled and converts from Islam to be killed.

Folks have been converting to Christianity in Afghanistan even though it is illegal and the penalty for leaving Islam is death.

Meanwhile their families are asking for prayers from the Christian community around the world.

Mozambique: Latest from Heidi Baker and Iris Ministries

image Here’s a link to the latest message from Heidi and Rolland Baker in Mozambique, Africa.

                                       Heidi ends her post with the following:

Nothing is impossible with God.

Please keep praying for us and this ministry. We are so privileged to be alive to see what we are seeing now. We love what God has entrusted for this ministry to do. Thousands are coming to Jesus every month. Orphan children are being brought into our villages weekly.  They are finding out they are adopted by Father God as they meet His Son Jesus. Wells are being dug bringing fresh water, and children and pastors are graduating from our many schools. Thank you again for being such a very important part in all this.

Much love in Jesus,
Heidi

Response: The message is well worth reading if you want to be blessed and uplifted. Also, we should remember to pray for these folk and their ministry.           *Top

I See Smoke on the Horizon

Pray for Southern California, USA

Picture by Martin LaBar via Flickr

I see smoke on the horizon, the Santa Ana winds have blown the gay demonstrators off the TV and front page print in So. Cal and replaced them with scenes of whole communities on fire.

Yesterday’s huge demonstration in Irvine was buried in the Local section of the Sunday paper. With all the TV media preoccupied with the fires, no one bothered to show up at Saddleback Church today, there was only one lone man out front carrying one huge sign advertising ‘30% off’ for the ‘Circuit City store closing’ sale.

We are still under siege here but politics and Gay activists have been replaced by wind, fire, 90 degrees weather, and natural disaster. Please pray for our area.

Let the winds be replaced with winds of revival and the fires with a raging move of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.            *Top
