Maryam and Marzieh’s Court Hearing

UPDATE: Ladies, our contact at Elam had this information to share today (4/14).

We are very thankful for the many prayers on behalf of Maryam and Marzieh.
They were not detained but we have been told that their court process will take a few more days. Once we learn of the outcome we will share it with you. Meanwhile we ask for your continued prayers.
Thank you for standing in prayer with us for them.

Last October we joined together in prayer for two of our Iranian Christian sisters, Maryam and Marzieh, who were suffering in prison for their faith. About a month later we got to celebrate as they were released from prison to await their court hearing. We recently found out that the court hearing is tomorrow, April 13, 2010.  Siestas, please be in prayer for these women. Here’s the message from Elam Ministries:

Maryam and Marzieh need our prayer.

They spent 259 days in prison for their Christian faith. After their conditional release on 18th November 2009 from Iran’s Evin Prison, they have been convalescing and receiving medical treatment for the past five months.

Both of them still remain unwell, weak and suffering from various illnesses. However, despite their frailties they are determined to be faithful to the Lord and speak the truth in court whatever the consequence or personal cost.

Maryam and Marzieh’s court hearing has been set for 13th April 2010.

Therefore, on their behalf, during the next five days leading up to their court hearing we request your prayers.

Pray that:

The peace of God will protect their hearts and minds and keep them safe.
They will completely recover from their illnesses and be strong physically, mentally and spiritually.
They will know the presence of God in the midst of their trial.
They will be set free.

Maryam & Marzieh would like to express their heartfelt gratitude for your prayers that have sustained them throughout their hardship.

Thank you for praying.
