Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I planned to write about something different than what is being discussed, today.
Knowing that I received this following message by e-mail yesterday, and knowing that there is a quick response required, I decided to post about it, here on LwL, today.
The message I received is from American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ)'s Executive Director, Jordan Sekulow. I'm copying and pasting the e-mail into this LwL entry, so that everyone can read it. Here is what I received by e-mail:
On Wednesday, President Obama will be in Pastor Saeed's hometown.
We're asking him to meet with Naghmeh, Pastor Saeed's wife.
Pastor Saeed is an American citizen, and Iran has imprisoned him merely because of his Christian faith.
There are reports the Obama Administration is considering leaving Pastor Saeed behind, striking a nuclear deal with Iran without freeing American captives.
After years of uncertainty and fear, Naghmeh deserves an opportunity to meet with the President, to make a personal plea that he not abandon Pastor Saeed, a fellow American.
We're writing an urgent letter to President Obama, asking that he make time to meet with Naghmeh.
We only have two days to make a difference. Join our call today.
Sign Our Letter: Mr. President, Meet With Pastor Saeed's Family.
ACLJ Executive Director
I must admit, this breaks my heart.
Not just because Pastor Saeed is still imprisoned by Muslims, and is suffering, greatly.
Not just because Pastor Saeed's wife and children are suffering. As well, as other family members, who love him.
It also breaks my heart, because I believe that USA's President Obama (PO), needs to be standing up for Pastor Saeed. PO needs to be doing everything he can possibly do, to have a fellow American released from prison.
Especially, since Pastor Saeed, has done nothing to deserve being imprisoned. And, is being persecuted in a way that is affecting him, physically.
Please, go on ACLJ's site, if this link doesn't work for you. Sign the letter.
Stand up. Speak out. Do whatever you can to help this brother in the Lord... and his family.
After all, we need to help those who are weakened.
Just as we read, in Romans 15:1, "We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves."
Pastor Saeed may be a strong Christian.
However, it's been noted in the past that he is weakening, physically.
He definitely needs to be released.
So, my friend... bear Pastor Saeed's infirmity. Don't please yourself.
Help how you can. And, pray.
By doing so, you'll not only please Pastor Saeed, his family, and others. But, more importantly, you'll please God.
Until next time...
