Prayer Vigil for Pastor Saeed

Detroit Prayer Vigil for Pastor Saeed, Sept.26, 2013 sponsored by Voice of the Persecuted

(VOP) Last year, on the day after Prayer Vigils were held globally for Pastor Saeed, President Obama mentioned him and other imprisoned Americans on a phone call with the Iranian President. What will happen this year if we pray again?

Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh Abedini is planning the second global vigil for 6-8pm (in your time zone) on Friday, September 26th. Note: vigils can be held at a time convenient for your location.

We are looking for others willing to join us in standing and praying with Naghmeh, and to be a VOICE for the persecuted in your State and community. Remember, this is a global event and we encourage those outside of the U.S. to also hold vigils in your country and participate in this special prayer event for the persecuted.

Voice of the Persecuted encourages you to consider helping coordinate a prayer vigil in your area. If you are willing to plan a vigil, please e-mail your response to globalvigil2014@gmail.com.  Please also feel free to e-mail any questions you may have about the vigil. You will receive a response back.

Along with Naghmeh, we are believing for Saeed’s release and praying for a miracle. On September 26th we will stand together and intercede for Saeed and on behalf of Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith. Our communities must know the value of standing up for Jesus Christ, and our governments must remember the importance of religious freedom.

If you are willing to coordinate the event this year, upon your confirmation, you will receive materials to help aid you in your planning, including information on how to manage any media requests.

Thank you for faithfully praying and learning about our persecuted family. Let us go a step further to support our Brother Saeed who has been languishing in an Iranian prison cell for nearly 2 years. Let Heaven and the whole world hear, he is NOT FORGOTTEN by his Christian family, worldwide.

Encourage your pastor and others to join us. Please feel free to share this update. Let us PRAY together in unity, one Body in Christ! 

DETROITERS: Location for the Prayer Vigil will be at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, 2 Woodward Ave. at 6pm

    I heard this story about the above mentioned family and this prayer vigil late last night on TBN, immediately after I had just questioned God,Where is he while I’m dealing with my persecution. After hearing this story attentively my answer was felt in all of the stories and scriptures quoted. I’m right here with you, just as he showed up and revealed his spirit and covering to Naghmeh and Saeed as they reconizied their mission with committed passion just as we should be carrying out our purpose for being here.We were created to live through our faith, belief and serving God for the supernatural to have the Glory.We must continue to stand and know its not about me its about Our Father’s Business and the promises he made. This story and the peace I was in while questioning God was my revealation again showing me his covering at a time like this.
    Our job is to take care of the possible and Trust God with the impossible.
