American Pastor Saeed Abedini was wrongfully imprisoned in Iran on September 26, 2012 while he was working to build an orphanage. Unwilling to renounce to his Christian faith, he was sentence to eight years in prison and has been physically, emotionally and mentally abused. Including beatings that cause him internal bleeding.
Yesterday, his wife shared,
It has been exactly two years today since I have seen and held my sweet husband. Two painful years of waking up every morning, seeing his empty spot next to me and realizing that this is not a dream. That his imprisonment in Iran is a reality. Two years ago this time I said a quick goodbye at the airport and told him I will see him in a few weeks.
Never did I anticipate that my life would turn upside down in a moment. Never did I anticipate the strength and peace and joy I would find in Jesus that would release me of all fears of any storms as I fix my eyes on Him.
I am in so much pain, but am feeling so blessed to have had the opportunity to share Jesus in front of nations, ambassadors, government officials and secular channels all over the world and to know my husband is doing the same in prison.
Thank you all for standing with us and praying for us. You are all our family in Jesus. Saeed and I are truly blessed.
Love you all.
As brother and sisters in Christ we are committed to pray for the safety and release of Saeed. In compliance with what the Bible says in Hebrews 13:3 – Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies. And Ephesians 6:18 – Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere
TO JOIN THE PRAYER WALL – Choose what hour and day of the week you commit to pray for weekly until Saeed returns home.
If you got additional questions regarding praying efforts for Saeed, email us at email@example.com or message us at facebook.com/CDO.PR.ElFARO
We will soon be posting guidelines on how to pray for an hour and how to pray with kids.
PLEASE remember, YOU are COMMITING to PRAY for that hour every week until Saeed returns home.

One small voice cries out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by our God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!
