I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Day 4 Forty Day ‘Pray for Iran’ Campaign.

God holds His word in high regard. So much so that he equates it with His name.
you have exalted above all things
your name and your word. Psalm 138
Faith is instilled by the hearing of His word so it is for this reason that today the prayer for Iran is focused on getting the Word of God into the hands of the nation's people.

There has never been such a hunger for the Word of God in Iran as there is now, and the Scriptures play a very important role in Iranians coming to Christ. However, realising the power of the Word of God, the government closed down the Bible Society in Iran in 1988 – and they do not give permission to the Church to print, import or distribute Persian Bibles in the country. So the Scriptures are like gold dust in Iran.

However, by God's grace, Scriptures have got into the country and thousands have been distributed. But the demand is such that millions of copies are needed. Today, let us unite in prayer that doors will open and that Iran will soon be flooded with the Scriptures so that hungry hearts can be satisfied with the Word of God.

* Pray that permission will be given to print and openly distribute the Scriptures in Iran.
* Pray for current projects to print and send the Scriptures to Iran. Pray for the safety of those who are bravely involved in distribution. Ask the Lord to protect them and to guide their steps and deliver them from those who oppose the Word of God.
* Pray that every Iranian who is seeking truth will have copy of the Word of God.
* Pray the Holy Spirit will reveal the Lord Jesus Christ to Iranians as they read the Bible.

"For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword…" Hebrews 4:12

Thanks again for praying.
