I first heard about this a year ago. A Christian pastor has been jailed in Iran and has been given the death sentence because he will not convert to Islam. Just yesterday this story has made national news in the US. But it may be too late.Please pray for this man and his family. Pray that God's will be done. Should he die, we should all remember this brave man during our own battles with Satan. How could we turn away from Jesus and take Him for granted when this man will die for Him? I certainly hope that I have the faith that Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has.Here is a petition you can sign for his release.If you know how any other way for our voice to be heard in Iran, please share in the comments.
Did you know about this pastor? What other stories of honest faith do you know? How can we stand up for our faith when we are being persecuted?
