DAY 29 - April 7
Tehran, Iran

People Groups Focus

Tehran was first chosen as the capital of Iran by Agha Mohammad Khan of the Qajar dynasty in 1786. Today it is a megalopolis of 9.5 million people.

Following a botched 2015 nuclear deal with the US, firm sanctions on Iran have weakened their economy and further tainted the public opinion of the only Islamic theocracy in the world. As the access to basic necessities and governmental planning worsens, the people of Iran are further disillusioned with the Islamic utopia promised by the government.

These are just a few of the many factors that contribute to Iran hosting the fastest growing Jesus-following church in the world. Pray that Iranians’ desires for greatness, prosperity, freedom, and even for righteousness will ultimately be met through worship of Jesus.


Prayer Emphasis

  • Pray for strength and boldness in the launching of God-glorifying house churches in the Gilaki, Mazanderani, and Persian UUPGs.

  • Pray for the awakening and strengthening of believers who have been in hiding. Pray that they have boldness in sharing their faith.
