Prayer Request For Young Iranian Pastor (Update)

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

UPDATE: (Friday November 11th) So far, in three court appearances, he has refused to do so – RISKING EXECUTION AT ANY MOMENT.   The Iranian Supreme Court often acts quickly in administering the death penalty. According to a report, when asked by judges to “Repent” Yousef replied: “Repent…what should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?” The judges replied: “To the religion of your ancestors – Islam.” To which Yousef replied: “I cannot.

It’s time for the body of Christ to act, to pray, to plead for the life of our Brother before Christ so that His servant may be spared. Please pass this article on.

Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is still planned to be executed for Apostacy; leaving the Islamic Faith.

The Iranian Government has changed their story and now says he is condemned for violent crimes and extortion, as a way of taking off international pressure, but these claims have been proven untrue.

The truth is this; Pastor Youcef was arrested on October 12, 2009 for questioning the local school district’s refusal to teach anything but Islam. His wife, Fatemah, was arrested shortly after, but released. His sons Daniel (age 9) and Yoel (age 7) have been unharmed.

And PRAY, as Paul says…Continue to remember those in prison as if you were suffering with them in prison, and those mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
