Prayers for all those in Iran...
« on: June 21, 2009, 12:08:30 AM »
Didn't see a prayer thread and thought one needed to be started, especially now...

Today they reported that things have escalated in Iran, the secret police have started firing at the protestors and there was a suicide bombing at the tomb of Ayatollah Khomeini. A video was also released by the protestors over the internet of a young girl (name was Neda) who was standing with her father about 1km from the protests when a secret policeman shot her in the chest. A person at the scene recorded the event, the young girl died moments after she was shot, this video has even the most hardened to death left disturbed and crushed.
Rumors say that Mousavi has told the protestors he is ready for martyrdom, and the gov't started moving tanks into Tehran by the end of the day.
News sources are also reporting the secret police have been going to college/university dorms at night-time and killing students...
Official counts stand at about 20 deaths so far, however unnofficially counts have reached well over 100 deaths after today.

This isn't a political thread and isn't intended to throw our support to the Iranian citizens, this is simply to pray for those in Iran and for their safety.

Lord have mercy!

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
