2015 Prayer Vigil for Saeed Abedini hosted by Persecution Watch, National Prayer Conference call for the Persecuted Church (CLICK TO ENLARGE)
Dietrich Bonhoffer said that silence in the face of evil is evil itself. The 18th century statesman, Edmond Burke said that in order for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
The United States government has been mainly silent on the Iranian regime’s imprisonment of American pastor, Saaed Abidini. And disheartening, they have also been silent on the persecuted church. One would expect this from a government influenced by Satan.
But WHY, WHY, WHY, is the American evangelical church silent on the imprisonment of Saeed Abidini. And WHY, WHY, WHY is the American church silent on our persecuted brethren?
My brothers and sisters, THIS MUST CHANGE!!! I say again through tears THIS MUST CHANGE!!! Will we be silent???
Certainly this is what the devil wants…disregard for our suffering brethren and silence from the Body of Christ.
Prayer is our most powerful weapon to fight and overcome Satan. Thus the devil would have us be silent. But prayer is what defeats Satan. James tells us
that the effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
It was sustained ongoing prayer that brought about the release of Peter. A few years ago a 24 hour prayer call changed the outcome for a young Muslim woman who converted to Christ and was under a possible death threat. Prayer brought about the release of Ken Bae out of N. Korea. Prayer recently brought about the release of Peter and Michael from their prison in Sudan. Can prayer not bring about the release of Saeed Abedini?

Voice of the Persecuted
Persecution Watch, is a national prayer conference call who pray specifically for the persecuted Church—will join global prayer vigils being held for Pastor Saeed Abedini on the night of September 26th.
For over 6 years, Blaine Scogin has led this national network of believers faithfully praying for the persecuted Church and the global harvest for the Kingdom of God. The group normally meets via a free call-in service every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday night at 8pm CST. But dedicated in their prayers for our persecuted brothers and sisters, these prayer warriors have been known to meet every night for months at a time—lifting them up as the Lord leads. Often, they host callers from nations other than the United States. And on occasion, they pray with the persecuted on the call as they tell of their hardships and share their amazing faith and stories of endurance through Christ. The group is honored to serve them by washing their feet in Spirit led prayer.
Persecution Watch is inviting all who cannot leave their homes, or do not live within driving distance to one of the many planned prayer vigil events on Saturday evening, September 26th. This call will be open to all who would like to lift up our brother, Saeed in prayer. In silent prayer or crying out—you’re invited to stay on the call as long as you feel led to do so.
VOP encourages you to share this information with everyone, so those unable to attend the vigil locations can still participate in the prayer event.
MEET YOU ON THE CALL!
