Day of Prayer for Iran

Bishop Ferran is calling for churches in the KEA Diocese to join churches around the world in a day of prayer on this Sunday 23rd October.

Churches across the globe, from Brazil to Japan, Mozambique to Australia, will be lifting Iran in prayer. We are so thankful for this encouragement to the Iranian Church.

Simple prayer resources are available at to help your church get involved.

Speaking of the event, David Yeghnazar, Executive Director of Elam Ministries  said ‘Over and over, we have seen that God uses prayer. I remember when our friend and colleague Farshid was imprisoned in Iran for his faith, he memorably wrote: ‘I sense the fragrance of your prayers as a cool breeze on my heart and it strengthens me from afar’. Prayer is powerful’. 

We pray that as churches around the world unite in intercession this Sunday, the Iranian church will be encouraged and strengthened.

If you would like to encourage the Iranian church a 10-second video of your church praying for Iran – or a word or a verse of encouragement would be very gratefully received at [email protected].
