God’s Presence Strong, Prison Guards Would Not Stop Saeed Abedini From Worshipping

Neghmeh Abedini is praising God this week—not because her husband, persecuted American pastor Saeed, has been released from an Iranian prison—rather, because Saeed is experiencing the manifest presence of God.

"Saeed's father was able to see Saeed in prison today (behind a glass window). It was a wonderful time of fellowship and Saeed got to hear of all of your prayers and words of encouragement that you had shared. Nothing encourages him more than to know that you are all praying for him and that he is not forgotten," Abedini wrote on her Facebook page.

Abedini says the amazing part of the visit was that Saeed and his father started praying, worshipping and sharing from God's Word together. Even though the guards were there watching, she says they didn't seem to want to end the visit.

"They were allowing them to pray and worship together. The normal 20-minute visit turned into 40 minutes, which turned into an hour, which turned into a few hours," she says. "Saeed and his father were shocked the amount of time that they were allowed. The presence of the Lord was so strong that the guards did not want to intervene and end the visit! Praise the Lord!"

Still, Abedini is asking for the saints to continue praying for Saeed's health, his nutrition, and for clean water. She says the quality of the prison water is very poor and so is the nutrition.

"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. Thank you all for your prayers! Love you all!"
