On May 21, Iranian security officers invaded a house church in the city of Karaj and arrested five newly converted Christians gathered for worship and Bible study, according to a May 25 report from Farsi Christian News Network. The house was searched without court authorization and several Bibles were confiscated. The five believers, including the owner of the home, were handcuffed and had been taken to an unknown location at last report.

Pray for the release of these Christians. Ask God to strengthen Iranian believers to continue honouring Him despite pressure and opposition from authorities.
