I never had an easy life, but in my thirties I was in desperate need for help. I felt like my life was falling apart at the seams.
I had a job, but the work was very, very hard, the workday was lengthy, and the pay was extremely low. During my lunch breaks at work, I found myself in tears and praying to God to show me Himself. About one week later, a man I worked with asked if he could sit with me during my break. I told him “yes”. He had a name that was not persian, as I was used to. He was always smiling. That made me think he was really crazy because his job was much harder than mine. He was not allowed to sit down during the whole work day, only for a lunch break. He very kindly told me that the Person I needed was Jesus. Only He could help me.
About another week went by. My friend kept being so nice to me. I saw something different about him. The words “You need Jesus. Only He can help you” kept repeating in my head. I asked my friend to tell me more about Jesus. He took me to his pastor, and for about three months he told me more about Jesus. I realized that Christianity was true. I knew all other religions were false. I asked Jesus into my heart, and I am now a changed person! I love my Jesus with all my heart!
Please pray for our brothers and sisters who are in prison because they believe in Jesus. Pray for their families. Pray the officials and others in the prisons will come to know Him too because of the Holy Spirit living in our brothers and sisters. The only hope anyone has is in Him. Only He can make a difference because only He is God.
