    As for me and my house, we continue to pray for Saeed and Naghmeh and the kids… and for the Glory of God in the situation.

    This is the kind of coherent, serious and generous hearted response we need. Thank you.

  3. Michael says:

    Thank you, BD…thank you, Paige.

  4. Babylon's Dread says:

    I think there is good reason to believe Saeed’s mistreatment would increase based upon the unfolding story of last week. What do we need to do to push back?

  5. Michael says:

    BD,

    Because of the nature of the allegations, it will be hard enough to maintain a consistent call for his release by more than a few.

    This situation probably grew exponentially more dire and I’m at a loss as to what we could do.

    Actually per report provided by the legal team to gain release, there was:

    1) First a refusal to allow negotiations for his release during the recent nuclear deal.

    2) Right after this, there were demands made for ransom to secure his release.

    3) Then he was removed from a hospital, returned to prison (which are not like our own, here in the states) beaten, tortured, and terrorized, permitting his parents to see the result of such to then be able to report to those trying to secure his release.

    4) No ransom was paid.

    5) Parents told they could no longer visit Saeed.

    6) Parents told to leave the area or lives might be in danger.

    7) Then this about face done by Nagmed.

    8) Legal team continues to hang in there.

    We need to be faithful for his release and the protection of all involved. Nagmed, I trust knows what is best to protect herself and those whom are placed in her care, as well as, to secure the release for Saeed. Will continue to pray for wisdom, strength, and discernment for Saeed, Nagmed, and their parents. Will continue to pray for the legal team and those contacts whom are able to do so much more than most of us. Will pray that God will cause the hearts of those who hold him captive will find favor with Saeed. Will continue to sign petitions put out by this legal team.

    ” I’m at a loss as to what we could do.”
    Michael and BD, prayer is the most powerful thing that we can do – the problem with my prayers are that i’m always trying to give God directions, to inform Him – oh, to have an honest, open heart of faith while lifting up Saeed, his family … and the others – this is the hard thing for me … trust God … what i really want God to give us is a Peter miracle … the prison door to open and an angel sending Saeed home to his family via airmail – God give us strength to pray and trust

    Em,

    Just wanted to share my thoughts…

    We are what is called a “Free Moral Agency.”

    In prayer we do get to have autonomy.

    Your not actually giving God directions,if you study those great prayers of David in the Psalms, your just expressing yourself to God Almighty.

    He told this to God:

    “And now, Lord God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house.

    Do as you promised, so that your name will be great forever.

  10. Em says:

    thank you Surfer, good thoughts
    “Do as you promised, so that name will be great forever.” amen … now, if i could just be 100% honest when i pray – as our Lord did – “not my will, but Thine be done.”

  11. Surfer51 says:

    Ahh Em,

    That is one of the great antinomys of Scripture.

    Jesus also said, “Men ought always to pray,” You have not because you ask not.”

    And of course so many other autonomous type statements.

    If you shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed and cast into the sea…

    Knock and knock and it shall be opened…

    We accept seeming contradiction between two beliefs or conclusions that are in themselves reasonable; a paradox, an oxymoron.

    That is why I think we see Calvinism and Arminianism.

    Both are valid and both supported Biblically.

    That is where I like to stand, knowing that both theological ideas are valid at one and the same time.

    Each of us settles down where we find peace it seems.

    I lie it here, I also like it over there…LOL

    opps…mistype, forgot the “K.”

    “I like it here, I like it over there”
