Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani Faces Death Sentence

Please pray for Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. His death sentence was upheld on June 28 by the Iranian Supreme Court. David French explains:
"His crimes? Apostasy and evangelism. Pastor Nadarkhani had publicly opposed an Iranian practice requiring that all children, regardless of faith, receive Islamic instruction. In spite of alleged religious-freedom guarantees under the Iranian constitution, he now faces death — a sentence that could literally be carried out at any time."

Yes, and the innocent suffer, like this pastor, his family and his church.
