Pray for Youcef Nadarkhani

The Iranian court has issued it's final decision in the case of a man who left Islam, converted to Christianity and became a pastor:

Iran Court convicts Christian Pastor to death

Pray for Youcef Nadarkhani - he is a 34 year-old father of two young boys. He was arrested over 2 years ago on charges of apostasy - apparently he could be put to death at any time. 

Imprisoned for 863 days

If you do Twitter or Facebook - plaster this story all over the place so more and more will hear and pray for our brother Youcef and his family.

Here is a petition you can sign to have Youcef freed:

Please pray for Youcef Nadarkhani!
1Thess. 5:17 - Pray without ceasing

Father, we lift our voices with those all over the world tonight, and cry out for Youcef Nadarkhani and his family. Spare his life - do a miracle on his behalf. May he be a testimony to all those who are watching him right now. Pierce the hearts of the Iranian leaders and let mercy and life flow. You busted Paul and Silas out of jail - let an earthquake of Your power hit the prison where Youcef is being held. Give Youcef great faith and courage as he walks through this trial. Bless and strengthen his family
