Prayer and Petition to Free American Pastor Saeed Abedini
Aimee Herd/ACLJ Staff : Jan 17, 2013 : ACLJ
"Remember the prisoners as if chained with them?those who are mistreated?since you yourselves are in the body also." ?(Hebrews 13:3)
According to the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), the American pastor currently imprisoned for his faith in Iran is now being subjected to "unspeakable abuse."
The ACLJ has launched an international campaign to free Pastor Saeed.
Below is a message from the ACLJ on how you can help by signing a petition, and of course praying for Pastor Saeed's release.
Pastor Saeed, an American citizen, is in grave danger in a brutal Iranian prison where he says he is experiencing "intense pains after beatings in interrogations" and has been told he "will hang."
His trial before one of Iran's "hanging judges" is set to begin on Monday. His alleged "crime"?threatening national security, which translates to establishing house churches in Iran.
The regime plans to use evidence that dates back 13 years to when Pastor Saeed converted from Islam to Christianity. As we know from the case of Pastor Youcef, who is now free because thousands of people spoke out, charges related to converting from Islam can carry the death sentence in Iran.
The ACLJ is calling on the U.S. State Department to demand that Iran release this U.S. citizen immediately. We cannot be silent while this American suffers for his faith.
