 Re: Iran re-arrests Christian pastor once sentenced to death

Thanks for sharing Greg. It is my burden & prayer we, as the western church, come to a greater understanding and reality of what the Lord's heart is in these things for His Body, & that the scripture finds a real place in our heart which says:

Hebrews 13:3
3xRemember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.

"As though in prison with them.." Implies more than a passive acknowledgement of the fact of persecution. I know if we really ask the Lord to give us His heart in these things, He is faithful to answer, place His burden on our hearts, & form the heart & practice of intercessory prayer in our Hearts. In this way, we love our brethren (who can do nothing personally for us really) & we can be used by God in prayer to move mountains for the sake of "the least of these" His/our brethren.

Thanks again for sharing!
God Bless,
