A place of writing and reflection…
At some point in our lives, most of us (Christians) probably prayed some variation of a sinner’s prayer. Many of us even remember the exact day and time we prayed to ask Jesus into our hearts.
But many people in Iran know little about Jesus or what it means to give their lives to him. That’s why The Voice of the Martyrs, with the help of contributors, has been supporting Christian satellite broadcasts into this Islamic stronghold.
Iranians are incredibly open to the gospel message of Jesus’ love and forgiveness. Many are disillusioned with the oppression of Islam and are desperate for the truth.
After watching one of these broadcasts recently, an Iranian family prayed to ask Christ into their hearts. But they were worried they might not have prayed “correctly.” So they made an audio recording of their prayer and sent it to VOM’s ministry broadcast partner, Iran Alive, to make sure they had done it right. Their prayer was sincere and heartfelt, and Iran Alive wrote the family to tell them their prayer was a wonderful way of entering Christ’s family. The family in Iran then told their Muslim friends about Christ and played the recorded prayer for them. Within a week, 20 more Muslims had come to know Christ!
