My heart breaks for this Abedini and his family over hearing this. Just so hard to imagine being in his shoes, suffering at this level for Christ.
May God provide quick rescue of Saeed from the prison or give him comfort and peace while he’s there, in Jesus’ Mighty Name.
CBN NEWS – The American Center for Law and Justice says Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini is being tortured in an Iranian prison and have filed an appeal on their client’s behalf.
Abedini is serving eight years in a brutal Iranian prison because of his Christian faith. The Iranian regime has cut the pastor off from his wife and children who live in the United States.
The ACLJ reported that Iranian officials refuse to let Saeed communicate with his family via phone and have been trying to convince him that efforts to secure his freedom have ceased.
“When I heard this from my husband, I cried. It broke my heart,” Pastor Abedini’s wife, Naghmeh, told the ACLJ.
“Behind those walls he feels helpless and relies on us to be his voice,” she said. “It is so easy to feel forgotten in the walls of the prison. Please help me make sure he is never forgotten.”
Meanwhile, the ACLJ is working with Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to urge the Obama administration to intervene on Abedini’s behalf.
