On 7 July, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard arrested a Christian woman living in Tehran named Malihe Nazari. This occurred in addition to another twelve Christians who were arrested two weeks prior. Dozens more were told they would soon be summoned for questioning.
Malihe is a member of a women’s-only house-church in Tehran known as One Heart. As is common in such arrests, her house was searched. The authorities confiscated her computer, mobile phone, and several books. She was transported to Evin Prison and has been able to briefly contact her family. Malihe is the mother of two sons, the eldest of which has reportedly been battling cancer.

- Remember in prayer all the believers who were recently arrested, as well as those interrogated for practising Christianity. Uphold their concerned families, particularly Malihe’s son.
- Pray that those who have been detained will be sustained and encouraged as they trust in God for their vindication and deliverance.
- Ask God to continue overseeing the growth of His church in Iran, calling even those who try to hinder religious freedom.
