Pastor Behnam Irani is currently experiencing various medical problems and is in need of our prayers. First, his eyesight is dimming and he has not been given access to a doctor to get prescription lenses. Second, he has a bleeding ulcer in his intestines. This has caused him to have bloody stool, vomiting blood, resulting in unconsciousness at one point. Third, from an accident several years ago, he had metal placed in his knee, and according to a family member it needs to be replaced every so often. Now it is past time for the replacement and he is limping badly. According to our sources his health is up and down. Sometimes he is feeling okay and other times he is feeling very sick, and he is still quite pale whether he’s feeling good or not.
Yet in the midst of this, Brother Behnam’s faith remains strong. He continues to be positive in his confession and to stand firm no matter what his circumstances. We want to believe together with Behnam and his family that he will be healed and walk out of that prison soon.
In Mark 9:23 Jesus said, “All things are possible to them that believe.” And in Matthew 19:26 Jesus said, “With God all things are possible.” What seems impossible will become possible through our faith. Please continue in prayer for Brother Behnam Irani and his family.
You can also see a video of his arrest, pictures, and view his written verdict from his trial in February 2008 on thispageofPresentTruthMinistries. Please share this page with your friends and family. I also request that you write a letter to him at VoiceoftheMartyrsPrisonerAlert. Please send a petition requesting that he receive medical attention and be released from prison at their website as well.
