New music video pleas for imprisoned Pastor

Saeed Abedini with his children prior to his imprisonment

A new music video from 7eventh Time Down features an emotional message to pray for imprisoned Iranian Pastor Saeed Abedini.

In July 2012, Pastor Saeed Abedini, a US citizen, travelled to Iran on his ninth trip to visit his family and continue to build an orphanage in Rasht.

While in the country Abedini was arrested and sentenced to eight years in prison for undermining the Iranian government by creating Christian house churches and sharing his Christian faith.

He was later transferred to the notorious Evin Prison, where he will serve the rest of his sentence after an Iranian court rejected his appeal.

Christian rock band, 7eventh Time Down, have just released a new video for "Just Say Yes", the title track and latest single from their sophomore project which released earlier this month.

The video features the story of Pastor Saeed and his current imprisonment in one of Iran's most brutal institutions.

News footage and images of the pastor are featured in the video during a live performance of the song.

Mikey Howard, lead singer of 7eventh Time Down, said: "I pray that this video can be a loud voice in the conversation God is using to soften the heart of the Iranian government to release Saeed back to his family. We cannot be silent."

7eventh Time Down encourages fans to watch the video for "Just Say Jesus" and pray for Abedini's release so that he can return to his family and home in the US.

As well as 7eventh Time Down's video, 26 prayer vigils will take place across the globe on September 26 to plea for his release, including in England and the US.
