Truth Behind Reality readers: I ask you to read the following article and then immediately, earnestly, pray!
Condemned Iranian Christian Pastor – Pastor Youcef
I have been following this story for several months through Jay Sekulow’s emails and radio program. Jay Sekulow is an international Jewish Christian lawyer for the American Center for Law and Justice, Founder and Chief Counsel. Read Pastor Youcef’s situation synopsis from a Christian viewpoint here on ACLJ.org.
I normally don’t feel the need to directly involve myself in this type of affair, except in personal prayer, but this time is different. I feel responsibility for him. Please, we must pray for Pastor Youcef. I believe in the power of intercessory prayer and I believe he needs it right now! He needs to know he is not alone: he needs to feel God’s powerful presence. But not only for himself: If we pray down heaven so that God’s Holy power consumes him with living fire from the inside out, the watching world will know it is Christ alone who is within him.
Pastor Youcef stands completely alone as a living Christian witness to the Islamic world, which includes his Iranian prison guards, trial judges, President, Supreme Leader and the Iranian general population. This is a rare opportunity for our Savior – Jesus Christ, the One who set us free – to publically glorify himself, both in Iran and to the whole world.
Pastor Youcef’s health is deteriorating, and just as the Apostle Peter’s Church family earnestly prayed for him during that awful night of his imprisonment by Herod (which resulted in a miracle), I am asking you my Church family – my Truth Behind Reality fellow believers in Christ – please pray for Pastor Youcef right now!
Please forward this message to every committed follower of Christ you know.
