Let’s pray for Iran. The events unfolding among the brave people of that nation have the potential to be as history-shaping as the dismantling of the Berlin Wall in 1989. My Persian friends have been telling me for years how the common people of Iran detest the death-hold of the Mullahs. This could be the time of their liberation, and we don’t want to miss the opportunity to stand with them in our prayers.
The kingdom of God means setting at liberty those who are oppressed, (Luke 4:18), and each time we pray “thy kingdom come” we would do well to remember our friends who are suffering under the yoke of religious bondage.
