UPDATE: This post was written prior to the overnight attack on Iranian bases in Syria (April 30, 2018). See breaking news of that event, posted a few hours ago.
In an interview with the Islamic Republic of Iran News Network, Iranian Naval commander, Ali Fadavi, said this:
American-Iranian tensions are rising as May 12 approaches. That is the deadline President Trump has set for cooperation with European leaders to “fix” the nuclear deal or he has pledged to pull out of the deal.
As we approach the May 12 deadline, will you commit to pray for our leaders, as well as other world leaders? They need wisdom to know what to do, and courage to stand firm in that wisdom. As often as possible in the next 12 days, I’m praying for 12 minutes at 12:00 noon and 12:00 midnight. Will you join me? I realize life happens and it won’t be possible every single time, but let’s make it a priority when possible.
Meet you in the throne room!
