Pray Request: Saeed Abedini - Iran

Yesterday, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) sent out an urgent update on Pastor Saeed Abedini. Below is a copy of the email.


"Pastor Saeed's life is in grave danger.

Yesterday, he was transferred to another Iranian prison – a deadly cellblock in one of Iran's most dangerous and obscure prisons.

He is no longer sharing a cell with political prisoners but with murderers. Rajai Shahr Prison is where prisoners are sent to disappear – many are murdered at the hands of other prisoners.

President Obama, who has already spoken to the President of Iran about Pastor Saeed, must take immediate diplomatic action to save Saeed's life. Time is of the essence.

Join our urgent new effort to urge President Obama to take decisive action. There is no more critical time than now. 

Sign our New Petition: Immediately Intervene to Save Saeed.

Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel

P.S. Please earnestly pray and share this critical message. A U.S. citizen's life hangs in the balance."

Gohardasht Prison is in the town of Gohardasht, which is situated in the northern outskirts of Karaj, about 20 km from Tehran. Gohardasht Prison is also known as Rajai Shahr Prison.

Please pray:

  • That the Lord will comfort Pastor Saeed, be his strength, keep him safe and remain close to him;
  • That the other prisoners held in Rajai Shahr Prison will hear about the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Lord & Saviour;
  • That the Lord will also comfort, strengthen & provide for Saeed's wife, Naghmeh & their two children who live in USA.
