On September 26, many places are holding a Prayer Vigil for Pastor Saeed Abedini. 2015 marks his 3rd year anniversary of being imprisoned in Iran for sharing his Christian Faith.
This pray vigil is scheduled in all 50 states and also around 30 countries.
Naghmeh Abedini, Saeed’s wife says ““I’m doing a prayer vigil on this day to remember Pastor Saeed and others who are imprisoned for Christ, but also as a chance to come together as the body of Christ and see the move of God as we pray together.”
Franklin Graham and the Abedini family will be in Washington, DC for a prayer vigil.
Pastor Saeed gets beat, tortured and anything they can do to try to get him to recant his Christianity and convert to Islamic beliefs. Saeed is not the only person held in the Iranian prison for being a Christian.
This prayer vigil is to pray for Saeed and the many other people around the world who have been imprisoned, beat, tortured, etc. for sharing their Christian Faith. Let’s keep Saeed and others like him in your prayers.
I say we also pray for those Christians everywhere, who may not be imprisoned, but who are being beheaded, hung, beat, turned into slaves, displaced from their homes, families etc. for being Christian.
Pastor Saeed previously expressed in his letter that nothing has encouraged him more than knowing “that in my chains the body of Christ has chained together” in prayer.
