Presence of God Strong in Prison Visit
Pastor Saeed Abedini’s wife Naghmeh says that the presence of the Lord was evident during a recent visit from Saeed’s father to the prison where her husband is being held in Iran. Saeed is currently serving an eight-year sentence in Iran’s worst prison after being arrested for his Christian faith.
According to a story released by CBN News, Naghmeh says her father-in-law was able to visit her husband in February, and the men were able to pray and read the Bible together as guards watched.
“The normal 20-minute visit turned into 40 minutes, which turned into an hour, which turned into a few hours! Saeed and his father were shocked at the amount of time that they were allowed,” Naghmeh writes on her Facebook page.
“The presence of the Lord was so strong that the guards did not want to intervene and end the visit! Praise the Lord!” she adds.
CBN News reports that Naghmeh said Saeed was able to hear words of encouragement from those praying for him, and was reminded that he is not forgotten.
She ends her post asking for more prayers. “Continued prayers appreciated for Saeed’s health, his nutrition, and for clean water. The quality of the prison water is very poor, and so is the nutrition (lack of protein). Saeed has not been able to purchase mineral water or protein from the prison store as they have stopped providing them for purchase, which has affected his health,” she writes.
