Prayer regarding Saeed Abedini’s situation
Naghmeh and Saeed Abedini with their children.
we pray for Iranian American pastor Saeed Abedini. We are so thankful he was released
after more than three terrible years in an Iranian prison. Thank you for
sustaining him as he was beaten and pressured to recant his faith. Thank you
for the unity brought about as believers all over the world joined in prayer
for his release. Lord, in the midst of the joy over his release, there is so much
uncertainty and confusion. We are grieved about the abuse allegations made by
his wife Naghmeh Abedini. We rejoice in her powerful testimony as she too stood
firm in her faith and advocated tirelessly on behalf of her husband. We are
terribly disheartened that abuse may have been part of this couple’s marriage. Lord,
we pray for healing and help for everyone involved, including recovery from any
kind of abuse in any situation. We pray for truth to come out, because truth is
always better than deceit. We pray that you will be glorified above any drama
or distraction surrounding the powerful testimonies of these two people. Thank
you for being bigger and more powerful than any drama, abuse or persecution.
You are the Healer and Victor. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
