11.11.02 - Pray for Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani
Summary: Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani faces execution at any moment for refusing to renounce his faith in Christ.
 
 

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani never practiced the Muslim faith and converted to Christianity at age 19, becoming a pastor later. But the courts say that since his mother and father were practicing Muslims, he must recant his Christian faith or die.

So far, in three court appearances, he has refused to do so—risking execution at any moment. The Iranian Supreme Court often acts quickly in administering the death penalty.

According to a report, when asked by judges to "repent," Yousef replied: "Repent, What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?"

The judges replied: "To the religion of your ancestors—Islam," to which Yousef replied: "I cannot."

It's time for the body of Christ to act, to pray, to plead for the life of our Brother before Christ so that His servant may be spared.

The Bible states, "If God is with us, who can stand against us."
