Update on Maryam and Marzieh: Case may end up back in Iranian revolutionary court

Elam Ministries released the following report last night and ask for intensified prayers on behalf of these two young women.  We invite you to join the many others who have posted a special prayer on their behalf on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall.

Maryam and Marzieh: case back with revolutionary court 

In October the two imprisoned Christian women, Maryam Rostampour and Marzieh Amirizadeh, were encouraged to hear their case would be heard by the civil courts. However, they now have been advised by their lawyer that their case may not in fact be transferred to the civil courts. Although they have continued to suffer ill health they have remained strong in their faith and are believing the Lord for a breakthrough. Originally arrested on March 5 2009, Maryam and Marzieh have now been held against their will for over eight months solely because as adults they chose to follow the Lord Jesus Christ. In prison they have both continued to suffer ill health, though they are encouraged by the outpouring of love and prayers from Christians world-wide.

November 25th will mark Marzieh’s 31st birthday, so we would be most grateful for you to pray for both young women, trusting the Lord to bring about their release before that date.
