||Pastor Saeed Abedini, an American citizen, has been imprisoned in Iran for over a year for the crime of being a Christian.In recent negotiations with the government of Iran over their nuclear program, his plight was left unresolved by our administration.Use your platform to speak out and demand his release. Don’t have a platform? If you have a voice or a cell phone or email or twitter account or face book page or instagram or linkedin or blog, etc – you have a platform. Use the hashtag: #freesaeed and/or #savesaeed on all your platforms today!What if it were you? What if it was your spouse, son, brother, father?
And lest you think that he is being cared for as a political prisoner know that he is in a horrific, over crowded prison. A prison in the middle of nowhere built to house 5,000 currently holds over 20,000. He is surrounded by murderers and rapists. They have held him at knife point to take what few items he was given. Prison officials have denied him the right to receive prescribed medication given him to help heal internal beatings at the hand of his interrogators. He is covered with louse from head to toe. He is gaunt and in pain.
Demand that our government use it’s God given power for good to secure his release.
There’s much we all disagree on, but over the issue of human rights, dignity and injustice we’ll unite our voices.
Saeed Abedini may not be of interest to President Obama but he is to “us” and therefore as an elected official working “for the people” we want it to be his priority too.
Also, because Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani حسن روحانی has both FB & Twitter accounts, we want him to be aware that Saeed is not forgotten nor insignificant, and we want his immediate release.
PRAY: Saeed’s life and his future are ultimately in God’s hands. This God, is a Father who lovingly gave this broken/sinful world his greatest treasure, not because they were asking, but because he is Good.
The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will. – Proverbs 21:1
I have held the hand and watched the tears roll down the cheeks of his beautiful wife Naghmeh. She is a woman of great faith whose heart is breaking for her husband and their children. She has been his voice and champion since his abduction. Please stand in support with her for her Saeed.
Please help, Amy
