The Holy Spirit has pressed upon the Live Dead Iran team to set aside June 3-9 as a time of fasting and prayer for spiritual unity in Iran.
Will you believe with us that the “springs of living water” will converge forming an unstoppable flood of eternal life? Will you join with us to pray for new disciples, for the miraculous fruit in a barren land? Please let us know that you are partnering with us in prayer this week by signing up here.
“You humble yourselves… bowing your heads like reeds bending in the wind… Do you really think this will please the LORD? No… Free those who are wrongly imprisoned… let the oppressed go free and remove the chains that bind people… Then your salvation will come like the dawn and your wounds will quickly heal… Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your city… Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and restorer of homes.” (Isaiah 58:5-12)
Religious actions which only appear humble have no effect on a mind imprisoned by sin, a wounded heart, or a soul tormented by fear. Now is the hour for spiritual “rebuilders” to use the mightiest tool of the kingdom: humble love. Now is the time to rebuild what sin has left in ruins. Iran desperately needs for her healing to come quickly – in communities, families, and hearts.
Holy Spirit, we ask You to convict the religious of their hypocrisy. Open their eyes to how they have disobeyed the command to love. Where false religion has imprisoned, oppressed, and chained to darkness, we pray for release, freedom, and light!
Jesus, You are the great Rebuilder. May Your believers in Iran carry the work of Your Kingdom forward. Raise up REBUILDERS. May they see with their own eyes a rebuilding of homes, families, and communities. We pray they themselves would no longer “imprison” their fellow brother and sister through unforgiveness. May the Church of Iran remove the chains of fear and distrust. We declare that believers in Iran are rebuilders of hope and joy!
Today’s Prayer Points
- Religious Iranians will sense the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and their spiritual eyes will be opened to their refusal to truly love people
- Believers will partner in the work of Salvation; they will pray for the spiritually oppressed and wounded to be set free and healed
- The Church of Iran will be filled with obedient servants of Jesus who share His hope and joy and intercede for those who do not yet know true freedom
Thank you for joining us in prayer for Iran this week! Let’s give praise to God for hearing our prayers, seeing our fast, and responding with a river of Salvation and healing that gives life to Iran’s barren land. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for encouraging our Iranian brothers and sisters, giving the Church a new sense of unity and humility, and igniting a passion for the lost. All glory to Jesus!
