Pastor Vruir Avanessian imprisoned in Iran

In Iran, pastor Vruir was put in jail on Christmas day of 2012, where he remains. This is a song of his. Here are the lyrics:

On a Saturday in the city of Nazareth

Jesus entered the synagogue

He opened the Heavenly book

And he read for the gathered people:

'The Spirit of the Lord has anointed me

To preach good news to the poor

To set the captives free

To heal the broken-hearted.'

On the road to the city of Jericho

The Lord Jesus was passing by.

A blind man called:

'Oh Jesus, Jesus, have mercy on me'

Jesus turned towards him and said,

'What do you want me to do for you?'

'Master, I want to see;

To gain my sight from your healing hands'

'The Spirit of God has anointed me

To give sight to the blind'

That day I heard the Lord proclaim:

'Go! Your faith has healed you!'

Pray for Pastor Vruir Avanessian and the Christians of Iran.
