On 8 September, Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani will appear in court again, this time to face new charges that may be related to crimes against national security.
Pastor Nadarkhani has spent over 1,000 days in prison since he was sentenced to death for apostasy in 2010. He has been in court several times and been given the opportunity to recant his faith to see the death sentence lifted. Each time, he refused. CSW has been campaigning for him since his arrest, and the international pressure on his case has so far helped to delay his execution.
Now, the Iranian authorities are putting him on trial again. The exact charges have not been released but there are fears he may be charged with national security crimes or even blasphemy. According to our sources, judges reportedly received instructions to try Pastor Nadarkhani on new, trumped up charges in order to make his sentence appear more acceptable.

Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church. (Acts 12:5)
Prayers going up for Pastor Yousef and all persecuted Christians.
Thanks. Just make sure you go to the website and sign up for a time slot. A nice way to make sure that there is uninterrupted prayer for 24 hours. Like James said “the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). I know I am not righteous, but I have been covered by the righteousness of Christ, therefore I will pray!
Prayers for him and all religious victim of Islam.
Most definitely!! I stand with Pastor Yousef!!!
