Outcry Over Saeed Making a Difference

By Jordan Sekulow1368487573000

American  Pastor Saeed Abedini’s family was able to see him today during a prison authorized visitation, once again confirming that Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – was  indeed released from solitary confinement and returned to the general political prison population.

Despite his suffering, Pastor Saeed’s faith continues to keep him alive.  Other prisoners reportedly told Saeed’s family that when Pastor Saeed was released from solitary confinement, “he was glowing,” and that miraculously he “was filled with more joy and peace after solitary” than he was before solitary.

Pastor Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh, attributes Pastor Saeed’s spirits to the thousands of people around the world praying for her husband.

We have heard reports that numerous prisoners and their families are appreciative of the international outcry regarding Pastor Saeed because it is having a significant impact for many prisoners of conscience in Iran.    

The hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are standing up, demanding Pastor Saeed’s freedom, are having a tremendous impact in Iran.  It is critical that the pressure continue to be brought to bear on Iran.

Pastor Saeed, who turned 33 last week, continues to suffer from untreated internal bleeding – the result of beatings he received in prison.  It is critical that everyone’s voice be heard today.

Join the hundreds of thousands of people worldwide who have signed the petition and written Pastor Saeed letters at  Have your voice heard.  It is working.
