Pray for the people of Iran

The words of the person who blogs here, as translated by the National Iranian American Council:

“I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed. I’m listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs. I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. It’s worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again. All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them. I’m two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic. I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure. So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism. This note is dedicated to tomorrow’s children…”

  1. A Prayer for Iran from the Church of England:

    Lord God.

    we hold before you the nation and people of Iran:

    - for those in authority: for wisdom and opennes

    - for those of faith: for tolerance and growing in understanding

    - for those who suffer: that they may know your presence and comfort,

    and pray that by your Spirit,

    hostility may end,

    stability may grow,

    and your justice may be established,

    through Christ who is the Prince of Peace. Amen
