It's not regarding me.
It's about what is happening to a Christian pastor.
I received an e-mail from the America Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). So, I decided to copy/paste the message, so you can read it. Here is what I received:
Today the ACLJ is standing before the world at the United Nations to save Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani.
Pastor Youcef has once again become the victim of Iran's crackdown on Christians. Authorities reportedly stormed his home and beat him in front of his children, even beating his young son with electric batons.
Iran continues to harass, intimidate, and imprison Christians. Its offenses are so great the State Department designated Iran a country of "particular concern" for religious and human rights abuses.
Pastor Youcef was already sentenced to death by an Iranian court for "apostacy" until we stepped in and fought for his life.
Now he's been sentenced to ten years in a horrific prison that's been called a "torture factory."
Pastor Youcef is in jeopardy once again because of his Christian faith, and we must take action.
Today we're at the U.N. demanding Pastor Youcef's freedom and an end to Iran's vile persecution and abuse of Christians.
He needs you to stand with us.

Wow! To me, it's truly terrible.
Yes, I'm grateful that Pastor Youcef will no longer be sentenced to be murdered. But, being imprisoned for being Christian, isn't good to me.
If you live in USA, please... sign the petition. If you do, you'll be helping Pastor Youcef.
I believe we all need to pray. After all, God will answer prayers.
Thinking of that, made me think of Luke 11:9, "And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.".
Amen! And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
To me, it's absolutely necessary to pray for Pastor Youcef... and for his family. They all need to be lifted up, and encouraged.
Plus, Pastor Youcef also needs to be released from the prison the Muslims have him in.
So, when you pray, please ask in the name of Jesus. For if you do that, He shall accept it and answer prayer.
Thank you for praying.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
