Happy New Year, everyone!
I want to ask for prayer for a Christian pastor, Farshid Fathi, imprisoned in Iran. He’s been given an additional one-year sentence because alcohol was found in a ward adjacent to him and he was blamed. This is a ridiculous reason to sentence someone to another year of prison, especially when the person has been framed. He can appeal the sentence (and I’m sure he will), so please pray the sentence will be dropped, in accordance with God’s will. Farshid has served four years of his original six-year sentence.
Hebrews 13:3 Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies. (NLT)
