Please pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini

Pastor Saeed Abedini & wife Pastor Saeed Abedini & child

Dear Friend,

More than 300 days ago, American Pastor Saeed Abedini was sentenced to eight years in Iran’s notoriously brutal Evin Prison. I recently spoke to his wife and she confirmed reports that he has been beaten and tortured. Pastor Saeed is being held in prison for one reason—because of his faith in Jesus Christ.

Join me in praying for Pastor Saeed and his family, remembering “those who are in prison, as though in prison with them” (Hebrews 13:3, ESV).

I urge you to voice your concern about Pastor Saeed’s imprisonment to our elected officials by clicking the link below.

I believe that we can make a difference.

May God bless you.

Sincerely,
Franklin Graham

Here is suggested text for a message to your elected officials. This sample letter is designed to look like a letter but is easy to copy.

sample letter Dear [Insert Title and Last Name],

American Pastor Saeed Abedini was sentenced to eight years in Iran’s notoriously brutal Evin Prison, where he has been beaten and tortured for one reason—because of his faith in Jesus Christ.

Religious intolerance continues to threaten the lives of Christians in Iran, even when they are American citizens. Secretary of State John Kerry called for Pastor Saeed’s release six months after his arrest. Since then, our government appears to have done little to pressure Iran to free him. Please help him by calling on the government of Iran to immediately release Pastor Saeed Abedini and allow him to return home to his wife and children here in the United States.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
