Your sister Maryam is back in prison – but still sick

Maryam Naghash-Zargaran has been returned to her prison cell from hospital – before medics were able to treat her properly for serious health problems.

Please pray that God will heal and comfort our Iranian sister who’s now back behind bars in Tehran’s Evin Prison.

Maryam had been on hunger strike in protest at the lack of proper medical care she’s had in jail. She was ‘almost comotose’ by the time she was finally allowed out of prison for treatment on June 6, having deposited a bond of £74,000.

When a court ordered her return to jail last week, her family applied to have her medical leave extended. The prosecutor’s office refused – and threatened to confiscate her bond money. She was returned to jail on Monday.

Maryam, who has a Muslim background, has been in jail since 2013 because of her work on an orphanage with Pastor Saeed Abedini. She’s serving a four-year sentence.

PLEASE PRAY 

  • That God will heal and strengthen Maryam in a way that human doctors cannot. Pray for her swift release.
  • Thank God that Maryam’s fellow prisoners have been supporting her and backing her bid for medical treatment.
  • Pray that every Christian behind bars in Iran today will know God’s peace and presence.
