Hello brothers and sisters,

I would like to ask for prayers for Iranian actress Marzieh Vafamehr.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/oct/11/iran-actor-marzieh-vafamehr-lashes?newsfeed=true

For one Iranian actor, life is mirroring art, in the most gruesome of ways. Two years ago Marzieh Vafamehr starred in a film about an actor whose theatre work is banned in Iran.

Now she faces a year in prison and 90 lashes after Iranian officials took exception to the film, which is itself banned inside the country...
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

For those in prison suffering under injustice,Lord have Mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Lord, have mercy.
I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
