Prayer Request for Saeed Abedini – Vision Beyond Borders

United with the Persecuted


Share their stories Knowledge is power!



Saeed-Abedini-PrayPlease pray for Saeed Abedini who remains in prison in Iran. He was just  moved earlier this week from Evin prison in Tehran to Rajai Shahr prison.

This is a terrible move for Saeed and he is in much greater danger there than  he even was while he was in Evin prison. Rajai Shahr is the place they send  prisoners who are seen as a nuisance. Bijnen, an expert on the prisons in Iran  said, “Going to Karaj is a severe punishment. Once in there one stops to be a  human being. One is put out of sight, even of human rights activists and the  press. In Rajaï Shahr, political prisoners have to share cells with dangerous  criminals like murderers, rapists and drug addicts who don’t hesitate to attack  their cell mates. They have nothing to lose: many of them are condemned to death  anyway. Murders or unexplained deaths are a regular occurrence.” Please uphold  Saeed in your prayers during this terribly difficult time.

In addition, please pray for Saeed’s wife and children. As you can imagine,  they have been devastated by this latest development. She recently wrote the  following message: “Yesterday when I heard Saeed’s news of being transferred to  Rajaei Shahr prison, I fell to my knees crying uncontrollably. Feeling so weak  and worn. I felt that this was the blow that I couldn’t recover from. I Didn’t  have the strength to stand up or speak a word. The kids immediately came to my  mind. Their innocent faces as they waited for Saeed’s return. Saeed’s face raced  before my eyes. The pains and tortures he must be enduring. Defenseless in the  hands of the radicals. I knew I had to get back up again and fight for his life.  Relying on my faith in Jesus Christ and the prayers and support of all of you  surrounding me, I am up by His Grace. Knowing that more now than ever we have to  raise our voices together. We have to pray. We have to take action against this  injustice.”

Please join with us in upholding Saeed and his family in prayer!!

  1. Praying for Pastor Saeed & his family. God has a plan, he will not abandon either Pastor Saeed or his family. We must unite as the Body of Christ in prayer. I have signed the petition and encourage others to do the same. May God hold Saeed and his family in the palm of His hand and bring them comfort and strength.
