Please Help #SaveSaeed

Please Help #SaveSaeed February 8, 2013

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.

    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

    Bristol, I genuinely from the bottom of my heart thank you for your signature on the petition, this blog post, your tweeting, and your prayers. Saeed and Naghmeh are personal friends of mine and I would very much like to see him home. I have been brought to tears on a daily basis as I see people from all over the nation and world, from all different walks of life and beliefs, stand up for him and also for human rights in general. Another great way that people can help is by sending him letters in prison. He may never get these letters, but if he does it will be VERY encouraging to him and if he doesn’t it will send a strong message to the authorities in Iran that we have not forgotten him and do not intend to. Here is a link with specific instructions on how to write the letter/the address:

    God bless!
