Recently, Fox News reported on Youssef (Youcef) Nadarkhani, the Iranian pastor who is facing the death sentence for converting to Christianity. Sources close to Nadarkhani and his legal team say that an Iranian court has made its final verdict in the case.

Nadarkhani’s supporters are afraid that the pastor might be executed at any time.

The Present Truth Ministries website has a page on instructions for helping pastor Nadarkhani and his family.

The greatest power we have on earth is prayer. God works mightily and powerfully through the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous,” the ministry website reminds us. It also suggests practical ways for helping pastor Nadarkhani and all who are persecuted for trusting in Jesus Christ.
