    Pray for the Persecuted Church: A Request for Prayers of Thanksgiving! - January 20, 2016

    We invite you to offer prayers of thanksgiving to God for hearing our prayers for the release of pastor Saeed Abedini from prison in Iran. Pastor Abedini is one of four Iranians who hold American citizenship and were imprisoned in the notorious Evin prison in Iran. They were released just a few days ago. Pastor Abedini had a ministry to orphans in Iran and was in prison 3 years. His wife, Nagmeh has been working tirelessly for his release and has been heard often on Christian radio. She also spoke to our Congress, the UN, and with her 2 children had a brief visit with President Obama. Many prayer vigils were held for the release of Pastor Abedini - one being world wide just last September. Thank God for Pastor Abedini's strong witness for Christ while in prison even while enduring cruel and harsh treatment by prison officials as well as his prison cellmates. He will need our continued prayers as he will no doubt be needing medical attention for what he endured the past 3 years. Pray also for the many adjustments he and his family will have to make when they are reunited. Thank God for answering the prayers of His people on behalf of His servant Pastor Abedini.

    "Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:10
