Prayer Vigil for American Pastor Imprisoned in Iran to be Held at the Missouri State Capitol, Thursday, September 26, 2013
A special Prayer Vigil will be held this coming Thursday, September 26, 2013, at the Missouri State Capitol to pray for American Pastor Saeed Abedini. Pastor Saeed will mark one year in Iran's notorious "Evin Prison" on September 26. He was arrested and imprisoned while in Iran because of his faith in Jesus Christ. Pastor Saeed has endured horrific beatings while in prison, and has reportedly sustained significant internal injuries. Christians all over the world will join together on September 26 to pray for him.
Our church will run a church van Thursday downtown to the vigil. Those wishing to go can meet at the church at 11:00 AM to ride down to the vigil, which is scheduled for 12:00 Noon - 2:00 PM. If you can't attend, take time on Thursday - and every day - to pray for this courageous Christian who is standing up for the name of Jesus.
