I found this article on Ian’s blog and was completely moved in my spirit to pray for this man, Youcef Nadarkhani, who is imprisoned in Iran and awaiting the sentence of death for preaching the gospel.
Who knows when any one of us can be found in a similar situation? The bible tells us to remember those in prisons and while reading his story I kept hearing the words of Paul “remember my chains”.
You will want to read the comments under the article as the rest of Youcef’s story is told there. Ian’s first comment is a letter from Youcef which I believe is written more for our behalf than his own. Be sure to read it and then pray for our brother and his family – and his captors -who do not yet have the hope in Christ as we do.
