As we celebrate the resurrection of Christ – a season of life – a season of hope – I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support for our work in this country and around the globe.

At a time when there is so much turmoil and growing challenges to our faith and freedom, I want to assure you that our commitment to defending faith and freedom has never been stronger. And, with your assistance, we will continue to make a tremendous difference – protecting the rights given to us by God, and defending the religious freedom that is being denied to so many worldwide.

On this Easter weekend, please keep those who are suffering in your prayers, especially Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani who continues to be illegally imprisoned in Iran because of his Christian faith.

Please pray, too, for our men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces who are facing grave danger defending our liberty and our freedoms on foreign battlefields.

On behalf of everyone at the ACLJ and our international affiliates, I want to express to you and your family our heartfelt gratitude for your support and wish you and yours a very happy and blessed Easter.

Jay Sekulow

An American Pastor is being held in Iran’s most notorious prison – Pastor Saeed, a U.S. citizen, has been told that he “will hang” because of his Christian faith. And, now the Iranian government has put this case on the fast track – and scheduled a trial that’s just days away. After sustaining painful beatings […]
