Azeri Turk in Iran

In Iran, this people group is known formally as Azeri. Informally, the Azeris and other Turkic speaking Iranian groups are commonly referred to as "Tork" (Turk). Despite conflict in the past, the Azeri are now well represented at all levels of the government and military, as well as in the religious community. The living conditions of Azeris in Iran closely resemble that of Persians.

Ministry Obstacles

The Azeri live in a region of Iran that is especially difficult to access.

Outreach Ideas

God is moving in Iran. Pray that he would lead Azeri families and communities into a movement to Christ.

Scripture Focus

"Then the king said to me, What are you requesting? So I prayed to the God of heaven."  Nehemiah 2:4

Scripture Prayer

Pray that you will not pass up the chance for short, but effective prayers when you intercede for the nations.

Prayer Focus

There are only a few believers among the Azeri of Iran. Pray that they would be bold and fruitful in sharing the gospel with their own and other families. Pray that the Azeri families of Iran would increasingly be drawn to Isa al-Masih (the name Muslims use to refer to Jesus) and to God's Word. Pray that the Lord would establish a church planting movement among the Azeri Turks in Iran.
