Grassroots Prayer Vigils for Pastor Saeed

By Matthew Clark1380120564000

Thursday, thousands of Americans, literally from coast to coast will gather at state capitals, city halls, parks, and churches to pray for Pastor Saeed.  Thousands more will gather in nations around the world.

Thursday, September 26, 2013, Pastor Saeed will have spent 365 days of torment in an Iranian prison because of his Christian faith.  It is just the first year of an eight-year prison sentence – a sentence he should never have to serve.  It is an ongoing human rights violation compounded day after day.

The new president of Iran wants the world to believe Iran is changing.  He is talking about improved diplomatic relations and has even released a few political prisoners.  Now, its time for him to prove it – to initiated a new era of human rights and dignity in Iran – to release Pastor Saeed.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani now has a letter from Saeed, a letter from Billy Graham, and will receive letters from more than 90,000 others urging Pastor Saeed’s freedom.

At Thursday’s prayer vigils that call, that prayer, will ring out at grassroots events in over 40 states in America and more than 15 other nations world wide. 

Find one of the more than 100 events scheduled worldwide nearest you here. 

Plan to attend a prayer vigil for Pastor Saeed.  Urge your friends to attend.  Urge them to #BeHeard for Pastor Saeed, to #BeHeard for the persecuted Church.

Will you join us to pray for Pastor Saeed on Thursday?
