Prayer Alert: Pastor Irani Imprisoned with Saeed

Ad Feedback

According to Truth Ministries, Pastor Saeed Abedini is not alone in Iran's infamous Evin Prison. Officials say Benham Irani has been in jail longer than Pastor Saeed and is also in need of urgent prayer.

Irani was convicted for committing crimes against Iran's national security after holding house church services and leading many Iranian Muslims to Christ.

He was arrested and tried twice: first in December 2006 and again April 2010.

Now Truth Ministries reports that "in the past year he has been beaten by prisoners under the watchful eye of prison authorities. As a result he is beginning to lose his eyesight, has what seems to be untreated Inflammatory Bowel Disease, is barely able to speak and has trouble walking."

He's also suffering from internal bleeding and a painful skin condition.
