Persecution – Pastor Saeed Abedini

News has emerged that an imprisoned Iranian pastor is continuing to face torture and could face further charges. “The US Iranian pastor is serving an eight year sentence for his involvement in Iran’s house church movement”.1 Pastor Saeed comes from a Muslim background and has been credited for establishing a number of house churches across Iran. He has been promised freedom if he recants his faith.

Pray for the pastor and his wife and for others who are currently imprisoned for their faith.

Pray for strength and that their witness would even speak to the hearts of the guards within the prison and that the light of Christ would shine through the darkness.

Sign the petition to urge United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to pressure Iran for his release.
