Saeed’s Kids Plea for His Freedom

By Jordan Sekulow1407856359000

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

Join Jacob and Rebekka in crying out for Pastor Saeed’s freedom by signing the petition for his release here, as we continue aggressively fighting for his freedom.

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.
