Provocari pentru rugaciune:

1) Sa ne rugam pentru schimbarea climatului politic din Iran asa incat oamenii sa poata trai intro societate dreapta si mai umana . ” Pray for political change in Iran – so that people can live in a fairer
and more humane society.”
( Operation World)

2) Sa ne rugam pentru toti crestinii care vin dintr-un context musulman. Lupta pe care ei o intampina este imensa – sunt respinsi si izolati de catre familiile lor si li se interzice sa se intalneasca cu alti crestini. Sa ne rugam ca Duhul Sfant sa ramana la lucru in inimile si viata lor si astfel sa nu fie descurajati cand vor intampina opozitie. “Pray for all those

Christians from a Muslim background. The struggles they face are huge – there are rejected and isolated from their families and forbidden from meeting with other Christians. Pray that the Holy Spirit would be at work in their hearts and lives and that they would not be discouraged in the face of opposition. ” (Operation World)

3) Parseii sunt dintre aceea care urmeaza religia persana veche (omul intelept care l-a vizitat pe Isus era parseu).Sunt comunitati de parsei care traiesc cam peste tot in Orientul Mijlociu si Asia si numai in Iran traiesc peste 2 milioane . Niciunul macar nu a fost atins de Evanghelie inca – sa ne rugam pentru ei ca sa aiba oportunitatea sa-l gaseasca pe Isus sis a I se inchine- asa cum acel om intelept a facut.

“Parsees are people who follow an ancient Persian religion (the wise men who visited Jesus were Parsees!) There are communities of Parsees living across the Middle East and Asia and over 2 million live in Iran. None of them have been

reached by the gospel – pray for opportunities for them to come to hear about Jesus and worship him – just like the wise men did!” (Operation World)
