Pray On: O Lord, hear our prayer

United with the Persecuted


Share their stories Knowledge is power!




Psalm 143:1, “Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness.”

(Voice of the Persecuted) There are many praises to God for the situation that Saeed and Naghmeh Abedini find themselves in. So many changes in this global event; today I am led to provide a prayer list for all of you to follow in your prayers for Saeed. Please pray for the following;

1) For Saeed’s immediate release.
2) For the Abedini support, for one another that we may never tire on waiting for the Lord to be glorified.
3) For Saeed’s Health; for medicines to be received.
4) For the pain to cease from his injuries.
5) For Saeed to receive treatment for his injuries.
6) For Saeed’s peace of mind, for his mental regulation and his wellbeing.
7) For Saeed’s safety in prison, that cellmates will not danger him.
8) For prison guards, wisdom and discernment as they oversee Saeed’s ward.
9) Pray for cellmates and guards to come to know Christ .through Saeed’s testimony. For spiritual support.
10) For Naghmeh’s faith in Christ to grow, to remain strong and humble in spirit.
11) For Naghmeh to know when to rest. Her peace of mind, and emotional regulation.
12) For Saeed’s children Rebekkah & Jacob that they will enjoy life and know their dad is safe in Christ.
13) For Saeed’s imprisonment will point to Christ and souls saved around the world, changed hearts.
14) For the Iranian country that many will come to know Christ and their world view will change to Christ.
15) For the unity of Christians, for revival to occur, for our voice to be stronger in Christ for souls to be saved.
16) For President Obama’s voice to be louder and stronger for the release of Saeed.
17) For Secretary of State John Kerry that he will begin to consistently ask for the release of Saeed.
18) For the Iranian Supreme Leader’s heart and mind to be changed and clemency to be given.
19) For the preparation of Saeed’s release when that time arrives that events are in order.
20) For the persecuted church, around the world, that God will provide a hedge of protection around them as they worship and share Christ.

I am confident all of you have been praying (Col 4:2) as we continue let us watch and as each prayer is answered let us praise God and rejoice.

  1. Kristi Ann says:

    “Pray Without Ceasing.” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV )!!

  2. This is an excellent prayer list for the Abedini’s. It is especially timely after some left leaning media and politicians (after the San Bernardino murders) mocked people who turn to prayer in the midst of a crisis. What do they turn to? More secular humanism? They reminded me of the “wisdom” of Job’s wife: “Curse God and die!” But we believers call Jesus our Rock, a high tower and our fortress for a reason!
