Prayer Vigil Scheduled For Jailed Iranian Pastor

Luke 21:12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.

Naghmeh Abedini, wife of jailed American pastor Saeed Abedini, is calling for a national day of prayer for her husband as authorities have done nothing to save him from Iran’s brutal Evin prison.

“There are now 44 cities in the U.S. that have gotten permits and are on board for doing the prayer vigil on September 26, which is the one year anniversary of Saeed’s imprisonment in Evin (Prison). Different cities are holding it at different times, but most cities are holding it at noon their time in front of courthouses, city halls, or their state capitol building,” Abedini told The Global Dispatch in an interview.

The ACLJ, who has been providing help to the Abedini family, says that Iranian officials still have not provided medical care for the internal bleeding Saeed has suffered as a result of torture from prison officials.

“Iran’s willful denial of his basic medical care is a reflection of its inhuman treatment of prisoners of conscience,” the ACLJ wrote.

A Facebook page has been set up for the event and Naghmeh Abedini is encouraging those who are in a community with a rally to take the day and join them in prayer.

“We know God is mighty to save, and will deliver Saeed just as he did Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Daniel, David, Esther, Peter, Paul, Silas and countless others,” reads a statement on the Facebook page.
