Meditation: Pray for the Release of Maryam and Marzieh

Two Iranian Christian women, Maryam Rustampoor (27) and Marzieh Amirizadeh (30) have been held in Iran's notorious Evin prison since March 5 because of their Christian faith.

Voice of the Martyrs provides updates on Christians suffering religious persecution and hosts an online Prayer Wall where prayers for them are recorded. Here is one such prayer:
Lord, please be with these your children who call out to you under the weight of their oppression. May the peace of Christ rule in their hearts. Give them the strength that comes only through You and the grace to forgive those who persecute them. May they wait for and hope for and expect the Lord. May they be brave and of good courage and their hearts be stout and enduring (Psalm 27:14).
