In the past, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've discussed Pastor Saeed Abedini.  And, the fact that he needs to be released from being imprisoned by Muslims.

After all, he is only in prison, due to being Christian.

Is he alone? 

Yes, and no.

He may be alone where he is imprisoned.  But, there may be other Christians there, also.

Just as I've received information about, from The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ).

After receiving a few e-mails regarding this situation, I thought I'd post the latest e-mail received.  Here is the information I received by e-mail: 
It has gotten worse.
Pastors Yat Michael Ruot and Peter Yein Reith disappeared.
Without notice, they were moved to a more dangerous, high-security prison.
Their families didn't know what happened.
Now, conditions are worse. Once their location was learned, one pastor's wife was turned away.
Just days before their trial is set to resume, their attorneys were denied access to them.
Mariam Ibraheem, who we continue to work with after helping free her from death row in Sudan last year, told us she fears for their lives.
Pastors Michael and Peter could be hanged for their faith if we don't act now.
Our offices across the globe are fully engaged. We're demanding Sudan free these Christians pastors like it freed Mariam.
Be heard before it's too late.

Sign Our Petition: Free Christian Pastors Michael and Peter.
Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel

In a previous e-mail, it was mentioned that there are at least four (4) other Christian Americans who need to be released by Muslims.

Please, realize that Americans are probably not the only Christians who are being persecuted for their faith.  There are probably Christians from other countries being persecuted, too.

One thing I am grateful for, is the fact that ACLJ stands up for Christians.  And, fights for their freedom.

Why do I think this?

Well, I have no idea if there are any Canadian Christians, who are being persecuted for their faith, by being imprisoned by followers of Islam.

Do you?

If you do, I'd love to hear from you!

While it is upsetting to me, that fellow Christians are being persecuted for their faith, it is not truly something to be shocked about.  After all, God told us that it would happen.

Just as He did, in Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

God knew long before we were ever born, if we as individuals would be persecuted for our faith.  And, He let us know that those being persecuted would be blessed, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

Does this mean we shouldn't pray for those being persecuted by being imprisoned, to be released? 

Of course, we should pray.  And, we need to do whatever we can, to help them be released... while they are still alive.

Please... in the name of Jesus, I am praying and asking you to sign the petition, as ACLJ requested.

In addition, do whatever you can to help.  And, please... pray.  Thank you.

May God bless you, my friend.

Until next time...
