Pray for Pastor Saeed! Imprisoned for his Faith.

Picture complements of:

Pastor Saeed is in prison in IRAN. He was there visiting family and finalizing details for an orphanage he was building in Iran when he was detained on July 28, 2013, simply on the grounds of being a Christian! He was placed under house arrest and then subsequently jailed.  He has been imprisoned since Sept. 26, 2012.

Here is a letter he wrote and smuggled out of prison to encourage not only his own parishioners but the Body of Christ at large:

Be very careful and be wise in what you say!  Pray also for his wife and his family. Pray for his health and his safety in prison.

Letter from ACLJ about Pastor Saeed:

This is the most crucial week yet in the battle to save Pastor Saeed, a U.S. citizen imprisoned in Iran – facing life-threatening abuse – for his Christian faith.
This week Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, visits the United States, and he may meet with President Obama.
This week there will be prayer vigils across the U.S. and across the globe for Pastor Saeed.
This week marks one full year in captivity for Pastor Saeed – one full year in chains for the Gospel.
You have already written 77,000 letters to Iran’s president, asking that he save Pastor Saeed. But now we’re setting a new goal: 104,000 letters – 2,000 for each week in prison.
Be heard. Become part of one of the greatest letter-writing campaigns in history.
Be heard for Pastor Saeed and the persecuted Church.

ACLJ Chief Counsel

Thursday, September 26th, is the one-year mark of Pastor Saeed’s illegal imprisonment in Iran for his Christian faith.  One year apart from his wife and kids.  One year of torment in chains for Christ.
On Thursday, thousands of people in dozens of cities literally across the globe will gather to pray for Pastor Saeed.
I, along with a team from the ACLJ, will be attending the Vigil at the White House in Washington, D.C.
What: Prayer Vigil for Pastor Saeed
When: Thursday, September 26, 2013, from 2-3:30 pm
Where: Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House across the street from Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C.
Thousands of people – one day – one prayer: that Pastor Saeed would be released to return to his family.
Will you join us?
