Saeed is currently serving an eight year sentence in Iran's worst prisons after being arrested for his Christian faith.

Naghmeh said her father-in-law was able to visit her husband Wednesday, and the men were able to pray and read the Bible together as guards watched.

"The normal 20 minute visit turned into 40 minutes which turned into an hour which turned into a few hours! Saeed and his father were shocked the amount of time that they were allowed," Naghmeh wrote on her Facebook page.

"The presence of the Lord was so strong that the guards did not want to intervene and end the visit! Praise the Lord!" she said. (Photo via CBN News)

Naghmeh said that Saeed was able to hear words of encouragement from those praying for him, and was reminded that he is not forgotten.

She ended her post asking for more prayers for her husband.

"Continued prayers appreciated for Saeed's health, his nutrition, and for clean water. The quality of the prison water is very poor and so is the nutrition (lack of protein). Saeed has not been able to purchase mineral water or protein from the prison store as they have stopped providing them for purchase which has affected his health," she wrote.
