Tonight I'll be joining Pastor Saeed's wife Naghmeh, his kids, Franklin Graham, my dad Jay Sekulow, and many others in prayer for Pastor Saeed in front of the White House.

As we gather in front of the White House to pray tonight, it will be the early morning hours of September 26th in Iran, the two year mark of American Pastor Saeed Abedini's wrongful imprisonment.

Tonight's prayer vigil kicks off over 500 vigils in 33 countries for Pastor Saeed and the persecuted Church which will be held throughout the day on September 26th.

If you can, please come out to Lafayette Square in front of the White House from 6-7 p.m. ET tonight (September 25th) to pray with us. If you can't make it, please tune into the Washington, DC vigil live stream here.

Please also plan to attend a prayer vigil in your local area on September 26th. You can find more information about the vigils and a location nearest you at SaeedVigil.com.

Nothing is more powerful than the prayers of the faithful. It's time to pray for Pastor Saeed. It's time to bring him home.

In addition to the prayer vigils many people are speaking out for Pastor Saeed's freedom, including Members of Congress. In the video above, Senators and Representatives urge people all across America to pray for Pastor Saeed and urge our own government to do more to bring him home.

At the ACLJ, we continue fighting for Pastor Saeed's freedom worldwide. Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – has now spent two years in prison because of his Christian faith. He deserves to be home with his wife and kids.

We just once again raised his case at the United Nations. Now as Iran's President prepares to address the U.N. in New York City, we must all have our voices heard. Sign the petition to save Saeed at BeHeardProject.com.

It's time.
