It has been two years since an Iranian; Pastor Saeed Abedini was imprisoned in Iran for preaching his Christian faith. On Thursday evening, his wife Naghmeh Abedini and Christian evangelist Franklin Graham hosted a prayer vigil in Washington, DC to encourage worldwide prayer for those imprisoned for their faith.

Pastor Abedini was arrested in July 2012 while building a government-approved orphanage, and he is currently serving an eight-year sentence for threatening national security.
