Prayer is requested for Christian convert Rokhsareh (Mahrokh) Ghanbari (62), from Karaj, who has been summoned to Karaj Revolutionary Court to face new charges of propaganda against the regime.
In August 2019 Makrokh was mentioned by then US vice president Pence when she was given a one-year sentence for “propaganda against the system.” After a failed appeal, Mahrokh started serving the prison term in October 2019 in Kachui Prison, Karaj, until she was allowed early release in March 2020 on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Iranian Christians request prayer that:
- God will strengthen and encourage Mahrokh and her family as they face this new challenge from the Iranian judicial system. Both she and her husband are presently unwell.
- The Holy Spirit will guide Mahrokh in her responses when she goes to court later this month.
- The Iranian authorities will stop their harassment of citizens on account of their religion or belief.
