Pray for Pastor Saeed

Pray for Saeed

Imprisoned In Iran

Saeed Abedini is an Iranian American Christian pastor imprisoned in Iran. He has been sentenced to eight years in prison for practicing his Christian faith. Abedini is a convert to Christianity. In Iran, Muslims that convert to Christianity can face the death penalty for “waging war against Islam.”

In July 2012, Abedini made his ninth trip to Iran since 2009 to visit his family and continue his work building an orphanage in the city of Rasht. While in the country, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps confiscated his passports and placed him under house arrest.

In September 2012, he was incarerated to Evin Prison; on January 27, 2013, he was sentenced to eight years in prison on charges of, “undermining the Iranian government by creating a network of Christian house churches, and attempting to sway Iranian youth away from Islam.”

In early November 2013, Saeed was transferred from Evin Prison Tehran to the Rajai Shahr prison in the town of Karaj, which is populated with Iran’s most dangerous criminals; where he faces harsher prison conditions, threats against his life, and suffers daily from injuries and declining health.

Please continue to pray for Pastor Saeed’s health and safety; for his release from prison; and for safe return to his family. Thank you.

The fullness of His grace

The fullness of His grace
(Octavius Winslow, “From Grace to Glory” 1864)

“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”
John 1:16


Will you hesitate, then, child of God to sink your emptiness in this fullness; to drink abundantly from this supply; to go to Jesus . . .

  • with every sin, the greatest;
  • with every temptation, the strongest;
  • with every need, the deepest;
  • with every trial, the severest;
  • with your mental despondency, your lowest spiritual frame yes, exactly as you are–and receive from Christ’s boundless grace–grace to help you in the time of need? Hesitate not!
