Prayer Alert: Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani Facing Execution in Next 24 Hours
We are asking for your urgent prayer for Youcef Nadarkhani, an Iranian pastor who may be
executed within the next 24 hours if he continues to refuse to recant his faith in Jesus in court.
On September 22, 2010, Youcef was issued the death sentence for his conversion to Christianity
and for encouraging the conversions of other Muslims. Youcef appealed the decision to the
Supreme Court of Iran, claiming he had never been a Muslim and therefore could not be found
guilty of apostasy.
However, a written verdict upholding the death penalty and ordering an investigation was handed
down on June 12. Throughout his imprisonment, Youcef has trusted in the Lord and has been a
bold witness of the redeeming work of Christ in his life.
