The Foreign Secretary and the Archbishop of Canterbury intervened last night to try to save a Christian pastor in Iran who has refused to renounce his faith to escape a death sentence. An Iranian court gave Youcef Nadarkhani, 34, a third and final chance to avoid hanging, but he replied: “I am resolute in my faith and Christianity and have no wish to recant.”
The persecution of Christians across the globe is real.
Do pray for Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani. Then act by signing this petition whilst there is still time to do so.
