Headliners for the week of 18 June, 2024

Low voter turnout expected in June 28 Iran elections

Iran (MNN) -- Ten short days remain before Iran heads to the polls in a snap election following the sudden death of former president Ebrahim Raisi. However, with five of the six candidates coming from hardline ranks, voters have little real choice. Transform Iran’s Lana Silk says the odds aren’t great for the only moderate candidate. Pray for strength and courage for Iranian Christians. Pray that desperate Iranians will somehow encounter the Gospel.

Call to action
