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.
