Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Dear Christian friends,

We have been asked to forward this email and pray for Pastor Youcef. Please forward using the bcc box so that a list of e-mail addresses is not circulated.

URGENT PRAYER NEEDED for cancellation of execution for Pastor Youcef in IRAN

This prayer chain is calling ALL Christians into action NOW on behalf of this Iranian pastor, who faces execution!

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,” Youcef 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.

This is what you are asked/called to do. As soon as you receive this email, PRAY IMMEDIATELY. Forward to your church so that its members may all pray too. Then forward this PRAYER REQUEST to every CHRISTIAN you know so that they may pray also. The Bible states, “If God is with us, who can stand against us.”

Emailed it to everyone, posted to my A-C page & tweeted – and of course, I am praying for him and all persecuted Christians and other non-muslim religious minorities who are suffering due to genocidal islamic supremacism.

Crusade Prayer (42) Pray of fasting to stop One World Currency

O God Most High

I offer you my gift of fasting

So that you will stop the grip of evil in the world

Being planned to starve my country of food including the bread of life

Accept my offering and listen to my pleas for other nations to prevent them from

The suffering being planned by the anti-christ

Save us Dear Lord from this wickedness and protect our faith

So that we can honour you with the freedom we need to love and ado
