IRAN: Imprisoned Christians Sick Amid Suspected Covid-19 Outbreak


Four Christians imprisoned for their faith in Tehran's Evin Prison are battling sickness following a possible outbreak of Covid-19 in their ward. Nasser, Yousef, Saheb and Moslem, all between the ages of 30 and 60, are serving prison sentences ranging from 4 to 10 years for participating in house churches and promoting Christianity in Iran. Though the prison is not testing or quarantining for the virus, the four prisoners are experiencing symptoms and receiving poor medical care. A new wave of the virus in Iran has led to a mass furlough of prisoners, but none of the Christian prisoners have been approved.

  • Pray for these brothers to be healed from their illnesses.

  • Pray for their faith to be strong as they remain in prison, and that they may be a faithful witness for Christ to their fellow inmates.

  • Pray for them to be a witness to the prison guards and officials as well.
