 01/29/12 Iran (Mohabat News) Iranian Christian Convert Sentenced To Two Years In Prison-

On July 30, 2011, Iranian security agents burst through the door of Leila Mohammadi’s home and arrested the terrified woman. Leila was then thrown into a police car and driven to Iran’s notorious Evin Prison. Why? What was Leila’s crime? Unfortunately, Leila is a Christian convert living in a fundamentalist, Islamic country--a country where Christians are treated as second-class citizens. Leila’s case was finally brought to trial on January 18, 2012, where she was charged with the following: (1) anti-Islamic propaganda, (2) deceiving citizens by formation of what is called a house church, (3) insulting sacred figures, and (4) actions against national security. The judge of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran sentenced Leila Mohammadi to two years in prison.

Pray that Leila Mohammadi’s conviction is successfully appealed.
Pray that the government in Iran enacts laws to protect its Christian citizens.
Pray that the Lord places a hedge of protection around Iran’s Christian citizens.
