Wendy Sherman, Under Secretary of State, U.S. Dept. of State, addressing CSIS symposium in Washington DC, October 23, 2014.
These next 30 days are very critical as there are indications that a deal might be reached between Iran, US, and the P5+1 which might include the fate of Saeed and other Americans being held in Iran.
Would you please join me in praying in the next few days not only for Saeed’s release, but also for the talks that are happening, for the leaders, and that the Lord would be glorified through it?
Here is a link to an article about it:
“In the middle of a lengthy foreign policy speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) think-tank this week, Ms. Sherman indicated other ‘sideline’ or marginal issues could be decided too, including the fate of four Americans detained in Iran.”
Could you pray 2 minutes?
At a critical moment in Jesus’ life, he famously asked his closest friends, who had fallen asleep, “Could you not pray with Me one hour?” (Matthew chapter 26, verse 40.) With approximately 30 days remaining to the Iran nuclear talks deadline, we are asking supporters of these 4 men: Robert ‘Bob’ Levinson, Amir Hekmati, Pastor Saeed Abedini and Jason Rezaian (a Washington Post reporter who was recently jailed), to #Pray2Minutes per day for their release. That will be one hour over 30 days! If you can do more, please do.
But can you imagine the power of prayer if 1000’s or even a million persons would be united in prayer over this one thing? Freedom for these men is not an impossibility, since nothing is impossible with God. The challenge though is moving our own selves to compel our flesh to pray for 2 minutes (see v. 41).
What to pray for?
