(VOP) Last year, on the day after Prayer Vigils were held globally for Pastor Saeed, President Obama mentioned him and other imprisoned Americans on a phone call with the Iranian President. What will happen this year if we pray again?
Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh Abedini is planning the second global vigil for 12:00 noon (in your time zone) on Friday, September 26th.
We are looking for others willing to join us in standing and praying with Naghmeh, and to be a VOICE for the persecuted in your State and community. Remember, this is a global event and we encourage those outside of the U.S. to also hold vigils in your country and participate in this special prayer event for the persecuted.
Voice of the Persecuted encourages you to consider helping coordinate a prayer vigil in your area. If you are willing to plan a vigil, please e-mail your response to email@example.com. Please also feel free to e-mail any questions you may have about the vigil. You will receive a response back.
Along with Naghmeh, we are believing for Saeed’s release and praying for a miracle that he will be released before September 26th. Regardless of whether Saeed is released by then, on September 26th we will stand together and intercede for Saeed and on behalf of Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith. Our communities must know the value of standing up for Jesus Christ, and our governments must remember the importance of religious freedom.
If you are willing to coordinate the event this year, upon your confirmation, you will receive materials to help aid you in your planning, including information on how to manage any media requests.
Thank you for faithfully praying and learning about our persecuted family. Let us go a step further to support our Brother Saeed who has been languishing in an Iranian prison cell for nearly 2 years. Let Heaven and the whole world hear, he is NOT forgotten by his Christian family, worldwide.
Encourage your pastor and others to join us. Please feel free to share this update. Let us PRAY together in unity!

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!
