Hail, Thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy People free:
From our sins and fears release us;
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s strength and consolation,
Hope of all the saints Thou art;
Long desired of every nation,
Joy of every waiting heart.
I propose the single loudest outpouring of support via social media to free Saeed in recent memory and perhaps in the history of the church.
On WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, every Christian with a platform, great or small, will feature Saeed on it with the demand that our government use it’s God given power for good to secure his release.
If you have a Facebook page, you have a platform. If you have a Twitter account, you have a platform. If you have a Blog, you have a platform. If you have an Instagram account…you get the idea!
Use the hashtag: #freesaeed and/or #savesaeed on all your platforms.
Our scattered voices can be ignored, but if we can come together across denominational and political lines as one voice the church may break prison chains once again.
We need every single Christian to spread the word to friends, family and any media outlets.
Pastors, feature this on your websites and blogs.
Bloggers, we need it on your front page.
Brothers & sisters, we need your Facebook status & even your profile pic.
We welcome any ideas to further this cause and we encourage your participation and promotion.
This is an historical moment for the church to come together for something that’s close to God’s heart - human life and dignity.
Please feel free to copy this content or modify this content, and post it as your own on your own media!

WHAT #freesaeed / #savesaeed IS ALL ABOUT — THE MISSION
1. AGREEMENT: There’s much we all disagree on, but over this issue we’ll unite our voices to demonstrate agreement & use the hashtag #freesaeed and/or #savesaeed on Dec. 4th
2. AWARENESS: We want our governing officials to know, though Saeed Abedini may not be of interest to them he is to “us” (see #1) and therefore as elected officials working “for the people” we want it to be their priority too.
Also, because President Hassan Rouhani حسن روحانی has both FB & Twitter accounts, we want him to be aware that Saeed is not forgotten nor insignificant, and we want his immediate release.
3. PRAYER: This is an opportunity to pray for our imprisoned brother. God moves through the prayers of his redeemed people (Acts 16:25-26).
None of the above is a magic formula. Assuming by adding more voices to beg/plead with God as if he needs convincing because of his stubborn unwillingness to bless, is nothing short of paganism & grossly misrepresents the God of the bible. This God, is a Father who lovingly gave this broken/sinful world his greatest treasure (John 3:16), not because they were asking, but because he is Good.
So, motivated by loving trust in Him, may we in agreement humbly/boldly pray (Heb 4:16). Perhaps, He who delights in blessing, feeding hungry mouths & setting captives free, may once again move to open prison doors by moving the hearts of leaders.
The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will. - Proverbs 21:1
We all face persecutions of various forms in the Christian faith by the world. Very few of us in America however,have endured such hardships as our brother in the faith Saeed has though. Placing his life on the line, he went to share the Gospel with the Muslim community in Iran and a year ago today he was imprisoned unjustly for doing so. As a result, he and has family has suffered a great deal. God has continued His faithfulness in supplying strength in their weakness as they still rest assured in the promises of God. However,we continue to pray and believe for our brother’s release soon. Please pray, act and read on how you can help our imprisoned brother.

Despite direct negotiations and the lifting of sanctions, the “deal” between the White House and Iran contains not a word about Saeed Abedini, the American pastor currently imprisoned and tortured in Iranian prison.
Two words are nowhere to be found in the pages of text that…
