Please Help #SaveSaeed

A few weeks ago my mom tweeted about an American pastor named Saeed Abedini being held and tortured by the radical Iranian regime.  He’s been sentenced to eight years in Iran’s most brutal prison simply because of his Christian faith.

This pastor and father has shown enormous courage, but now Iranians are lying to him in prison — telling him that Americans have forgotten about him.

Yesterday was Save Saeed day, and Christian and country musicians across the U.S., including Toby Mac, Ricky Skaggs, Steven Curtis Chapman, Mercy Me, and many others tweeted for him and signed a petition for his freedom.  (In fact, #SaveSaeed was trending on Twitter yesterday!  Let’s keep it up!) The American Center for Law and Justice represents his family and is organizing a petition on his behalf.  Please consider signing and telling this American pastor that he will never be forgotten.

We should never leave an American behind.

How you can help:

1.  Sign the petition.

2. Tweet using: #SaveSaeed.

3. Pray for Pastor Saeed, his family in Iran, and his wife and children here in the United States.

    Christians (for their own safety) should Not go to any Muslim controlled Country.

    Bris, I am happy for you bringing attention to this, I wanted to ask you, so glad you are obedient to the Lord’s voice, I wasn’t!

    I hear on radio the pastor’s favorite song is “My God is not dead”, I have heard the song a few times, powerful lyrics, I pray that in prison the Holy Spirit will bring the words of that song to his mind to encourage him, cause his God is NOT dead!

    I pray also that the Lord will open doors for him to share in prison, there are souls in that prison that the Lord wants to reach and save!

    According to a friend of Pastor Caeed, they were visiting around the swimming pool one day, when this song came on the radio and Pastor sang along, obviously loving the song very much:

    And this world I’ll overcome
    My God’s not dead
    He’s surely alive
    He’s living on the inside Roaring like a lion [x2]

    Let heaven roar and fire fall
    Come shake the ground
    With the sounds of revival [x3]
    My God’s not dead

    Newboys – God is not dead
