The Word of God
‘Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have desperately wanted a copy of the Injil (New Testament) for a very long time.’
This is a common response when an Iranian receives a copy of the New Testament for the very first time. Why? Because they are hungry for truth and they are fascinated with Jesus.
There has never been such a hunger for the Word of God in Iran as there is now, and the Scriptures play a very important role in Iranians coming to Christ. However, realising the power of the Word of God, the government closed down the Bible Society in Iran in 1988 – and they do not give permission to the Church to print, import or distribute Persian Bibles in the country. So the Scriptures are like gold dust in Iran.
However, by God’s grace, Scriptures have got into the country and thousands have been distributed. But the demand is such that millions of copies are needed. Today, let us unite in prayer that doors will open and that Iran will soon be flooded with the Scriptures so that hungry hearts can be satisfied with the Word of God.
- Pray that permission will be given to print and openly distribute the Scriptures in Iran.
- Pray for current projects to print and send the Scriptures to Iran. Pray for the safety of those who are bravely involved in distribution. Ask the Lord to protect them and to guide their steps and deliver them from those who oppose the Word of God.
- Pray that every Iranian who is seeking truth will have copy of the Word of God.
- Pray the Holy Spirit will reveal the Lord Jesus Christ to Iranians as they read the Bible.
"For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword…" Hebrews 4:12
Thanks again for praying.

Jesus Christ the saviour of the World,
The messenger of salvation for sinners,
He has the message of redemption for everyone from darkness to light
Hurry up now otherwise tomorrow will be too late
