Write To An Iranian Prisoner

July 25, 2014 by Open Doors in ,

Pastor Saeed Abedini is an American citizen who was thrown into an Iranian prison in the summer of 2012. A few months later, he was sentenced to 8 years in prison due to his Christian activities.

Pastor Saeed Abedini

Pastor Saeed represents hundreds of Christians who are imprisoned for their faith in Iran. The living conditions can be unspeakable and many live in fear of their lives on a daily basis. Open Doors is providing a writing campaign for six of these prisoners- as a way to remind them that they are not alone. Many persecuted believers have said that what motivates them to keep fighting the good fight is knowing that fellow believers, whether near or far, are praying for them and remembering them in their greatest time of need. Iran ranks #9 on the 2014 Open Doors World Watch List of countries where Christians face the most persecution. While it has seen an increase in Christian television programs and radio stations, the increasing levels of persecution have followed suit, due to Iran’s extremely oppressive regime. A great opportunity to help encourage a Christian being persecuted for their faith is to write to them through Open Doors’ writing campaigns. Follow the link below to find out the details you will need to know on how and what to write to these believers today. As Hebrews 13:3 says, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” Help to unify the Body of Christ, and uphold these believers in the faith through prayer and encouragement!
