In answer to prayers, a total of five Americans held hostage in Iran have been  freed – Pastor Saeed Abedini, journalist Jason Rezaian, former US Marine Amir Hekmati, student Matt Trevithick, and businessman Nosratollah ­Khosravi-Roodsari. However, two Americans have not been freed – businessman Siamak Namazi, and former FBI agent Robert Levinson. In this week’s Patriots’ Prayers, let us thank God for those answered prayers, and let us continue to pray for those still being held.

Heavenly Father, Heavenly Father, we come into your presence with joy and singing, offering You all our praise and worship. We enter into your gates with thanksgiving, into your courts with praise. We are thankful to You, and bless your Holy Name, for You are good in all your ways, and your Truth lasts throughout all generations.

Thank You for the release of Americans held hostage in Iran. Thank you for answering all the prayers for the freedom of Saeed Abedini, Jason Rezaian, Amir Hekmati, Matt Trevithick, and Nosratollah ­Khosravi-Roodsari. Please continue to have mercy on them and their families, bring all needed healing and comfort to them.

Father, we continue to lift up to You the two remaining Americans being held in Iran – Siamak Namazi and Robert Levinson. We pray for their health, safety, and freedom. Robert Levinson is of particular concern, Father, having been held since 2007, and having not been seen or heard from since 2010, when it was known he was in poor health. Have mercy on these men, and comfort their families.

In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.

Also this week, please make a special point pray for the Church and clergy in America:

Remember, O Lord, Your Church, which You purchased with Your precious blood – protect it, strengthen it, and multiply it. Keep Your Church in peace, and bring to naught all plots and threats against Your Church. Have mercy, O Lord, upon the whole clergy of Your Church, and grant them the courage, wisdom, and strength needed to boldly preach and do Your Will during these perilous times.  (Please continue to pray by name for your church, your pastor or priest, and fellow church members.)
