Sign the Petition: Free Saeed

Here's the link: Sign the petition to free Saeed in Iran and read more about the situation from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ)

Pastor Saeed Abedini, an American citizen, is currently on trial in Iran, facing a possible death sentence.  He's charged, essentially, with being a Christian.  While under house arrest, Saeed has been able to listen to Air1! His wife, Naghmeh, says he gets tremendous encouragement from being able to listen, even in the midst of what can be a brutal daily life.  He writes, now, that he is facing beatings in prison. His trial began today.

Hear Naghmeh's interview with Air1's Brant Hansen:

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

When I first heard of this and shared the news with other children of God, clearly shock and disgust filled their eyes. The Muslims have no sense of compassion much less truth, this much has been proven time and again historically through partitioned Cypress (1960's), Bosnia's bombardment etc.. I do not feel that we should be "yoked" with these people and other non Christ centered faiths. Clearly it will only create problems with dissension and don't we already have problems with that? My hope and prayer is for Jesus' glory to manifest in this situation and continued strength to our brother in Iran and sister in the States and continued strength and protection for all the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Matthew 5:10-12

Psalms 911    He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2    I will say of the LORD,
He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.
3    Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
and from the noisome pestilence.
4    He shall cover thee with his feathers,
and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5    Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6   nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7    A thousand shall fall at thy side,
and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee.
8    Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
and see the reward of the wicked.
9    Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge,
even the Most High, thy habitation;
10    there shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11    For he shall give his angels charge over thee, Mt. 4.6 · Lk. 4.10
to keep thee in all thy ways.
12    They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Mt. 4.6 · Lk. 4.11
13    Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Lk. 10.19
14    Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15    He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honor him.
16    With long life will I satisfy him,
and show him my salvation.
My prayers are with you and your family Trusting in our Lord who delivered Daniel from the lions den

We know that ultimately God is in control.  I would like to see this pastor released back to his family.  Children of God, go back and pray the Lord's prayer.  God's will be done..in earth as it is in heaven.  Pray that this man has a soul winning impact right where he is now and that he claims more souls and victory for the kingdom of God.  Pray that his faith will remain strong and will not fail him when persecuted by the people who hate him because of religion, a godless nation.  I pray for comfort and peace for his wife and family, the love and support of people he has ministered too.  As followers of Christ, we have been commissioned to lay down our lives for the cause of Christ.  This pastor has been put in a situation where he has to overcome the fear of losing life and hold on to the promises we all cherish in the New Testament, Holy Bible.  Whichever way it turns out...to God be the glory.

   Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
