Christians in Iran face constant danger when living out their faith. This is particularly true for those who convert from Islam. For many, faith in Christ leads to torture and imprisonment.
Ismaeil Maghrebinejad, 65, was taken into custody in January on charges of propaganda against the state. In a hearing on 22 October, charges of apostasy were added by the judge, even though Ismaeil has been a Christian for nearly 40 years. The next court hearing is expected in two months’ time.

- Pray Ismaeil will experience God’s peace and grace during this difficult trial.
- Pray he will be given opportunity to witness for the Gospel for which he has been detained.
- Ask the Lord to strengthen and encourage all Iranian Christians who are falsely accused of acts against national security simply because of their Christian faith and activities.
