The Sound of Life wants to encourage you to pray for those who are being persecuted for their faith… those who are in prison or who are facing physical pain as a result of the fact that they are Christ-followers.
You may have heard us praying for and talking about Pastor Saeed Abidini who has been held in an Iranian prison for over a year. We encourage you to continue to lift him up before the Lord. There is a glimmer of hope in Pastor Saeed’s case. Iran’s foreign minister, speaking to CNN about Pastor Saeed, said, “We have various clemency measures in Iran that … can be introduced again in these cases.” Let’s take him at his word. Let’s ask for clemency – for Pastor Saeed’s release. You can sign the petition here: BeHeartProject.com.
Also, every day at 4:35 am & 7:20 pm you can listen to the Adopt-a-nation Prayer Project Spotlight with Sarah Smith. Each week she highlights a different country or story about persecution that you can be praying for. Here is one of the most recent program:
