“And whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’ And if a man of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him; but if not, it will return to you.” Luke 10:5 (NASB)

Tehran, Iran

In contrast to most of the Muslim world, Iran is a Shia country. Shia Muslims account for 15% of the world’s followers of Islam.

The combination of years of economic sanctions, as well as the current social fallout precipitated by the death of Mahsa Amini at the hands of the Morality Police, has made Tehran a cauldron of unrest. This is creating opportunities for sharing the gospel message of hope.

Because some of their leaders have faced violent, martyrs’ deaths, Shias understand that a righteous man can be killed by the unrighteous. For this reason, Christ’s death on a Roman cross is not as foreign to them as it is to Sunnis.

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

Ways To Pray:

  • Pray that believers in government, business, education, and the arts would have influence for the gospel.
  • Pray for the awakening and strengthening of believers who have been in hiding and for them to have boldness in sharing their faith.
  • Pray for the Kingdom of God to come in signs, wonders, and power and for the multiplication of outreach, disciple making, and church planting in the 31 provinces of Iran.
