National Day of Prayer and Pastor Saeed’s Birthday

My family continues to pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini… Thursday marks his 35th birthday… here is more on what is happening with him.

This week, Thursday in fact, not only marks American Pastor Saeed Abedini’s 35th birthday but the National Day of Prayer as well.

Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – will spend his third birthday wrongfully imprisoned for his Christian faith.  Yet as that day approaches, he wanted to express his encouragement for the Christian Church in America: “Remember my chains in your freedom and chain together in unity for our beloved America.”

As a family member visited him last week, he was able to deliver an open letter (available in Farsi here) that he would like to see read by Christians all across America as we approach the National Day of Prayer.

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

I have been made aware that the National Day of Prayer (May 7th) falls on my birthday this year! As an American and as a prisoner for Christ I have spent many hours praying and crying out to God for revival for this great nation. We all hope for the success of our nation and for America to be blessed, but without revival there can be no true success or blessing.  As Ezra’s cried out to God in repentance and the Israelites joined him in weeping bitterly and turning from their sin, I would like to ask you to join me in repenting and praying for revival. Me from inside of these prison walls and you on the outside.

To read the rest of his letter please visit the website for the ACLJ.
