IRAN | DEC. 11, 2020 — Imprisoned Christian’s Son Expelled from School
Believers are imprisoned for their Christian activities, but others continue to share the gospel in spite of the risks.
An imprisoned Christian is asking for prayer specifically for his son.
Ali was arrested for his participation in a house church, and he is being kept in a prison separate from other Christians arrested at the same time. He also says he is often insulted by other prisoners for his faith. Imprisonment is difficult enough, but Ali has an added stress: his son was expelled from school after his father’s arrest, also losing his scholarship. Worrying about his family has overwhelmed Ali at times, but he says he is learning to turn to God in these moments and trust that both his life and his family’s lives are in God’s hands. He told a VOM partner that he is thankful for all the brothers and sisters who are standing alongside him as he endures this trial.
Pray for Ali in prison, and pray for his family outside the prison as they navigate challenges without their husband and father.
