Video: Iran Steps Up Persecution of Christians

This video is about a month old, (not sure how I missed this), and I really want you to watch it because you'll see numerous photos of Christians who have been imprisoned and have suffered greatly for their faith in Jesus Christ.

Please also spend time in prayer today for Christians in Iran. CBN News reported:

Elam Ministries, an organization that serves Christians in Iran, reports 285 believers in 35 cities have been arrested in the past six months.

Many of those Christians who were detained spent weeks and even months in prison, often serving long stretches in solitary confinement. They also endured interrogations and psychological abuse.
