Support Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani
The Iranian pastor has been found guilty of apostasy from Islam, but because he refused three times to recant his Christian faith in court when given the opportunity he therefore now faces the death penalty. The story has attracted considerable attention from the world's media. A final ruling is expected today or early this week, but some observers note that the death penalty may be implemented without any prior announcement (as has happened in Iran the past). Please pray for Pastor Nadarkhani and consider becoming involved in the campaign supporting him. Further details of this travesty and how to get involved on Pastor Nadarkhani's behalf are available on the Christian Solidarity Worldwide website.

Yes, we need to remember that there are many Christians suffering for their faith in other countries, and they need our prayers.
