Pastor Saeed’s young children, Jacob and Rebekka, are pleading for President Obama to “please help bring my daddy home.”
In a new video (seen above), the children give a heartfelt and impassioned plea for our President to do everything within his power to help free Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen.
Thirty-four-year-old American Pastor Saeed Abedini has been wrongfully imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith for nearly two years. He has undergone torturous prison beatings, sustaining injuries for which he still needs surgery.
Six-year-old Jacob implores, “I don’t want him to miss another birthday, or Christmas, or Fathers Day. . . . My heart cries because it misses Daddy.” Seven-year-old Rebekka pleads, “Why does our daddy need to be in prison for loving Jesus?”
Jacob and Rebekka don’t deserve to have to spend another day – not another second – without their father. He has done nothing wrong; his only “crime,” his faith in Christ.
Please share their plea and continue to pray for Pastor Saeed.
Jacob and Rebekka have also made a separate plea, in Farsi, to Iran’s leaders urging the release of their father.
Next month, September 26th, marks two years of wrongful imprisonment. Thousands of people are gathering in over 240 cities all across the globe on that day to pray for Pastor Saeed and the persecuted Church. Learn more about these vigils at BeHeardProject.com.

Now is the time for us all to raise our voices. Now is the time for President Obama to publicly demand freedom for this wrongfully imprisoned American. It’s time.

ISIS – the Islamic State – is now more dangerous than ever. ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow and his “Law of War Team” sounded the alarm on this brutal terrorist group last fall with the launch of “Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore”. That must-read book quickly climbed to the top, becoming a...
One of the most puzzling aspects of America’s relationship with Iran is the reality that — by rhetoric and conduct — the United States acts as if it fears Iran, while Iran behaves as if it has nothing to fear from the U.S. Iran commits repeated acts of war against the U.S., unlawfully holds our...
