Photo: Ted Cruz Kneels in Prayer Outside the White House

By on September 27, 2013

Here’s a shot of Sen. Ted Cruz praying in front of The White House yesterday.

No, he’s not praying that Barack Obama will overturn Obamacare and no, he’s not praying that he will occupy the presidency one day. Instead, he’s alongside Rev. Rob Schenck (from Faith and Action) and Rev. Frazier White (a Democrat and Obama supporter) praying for Saeed Abedini, who has been in an Iranian prison for one year. He is being persecuted for his faith to Jesus Christ.

Who says Ted Cruz isn’t bipartisan?

I have not only interviewed Ted Cruz many times, but I have spent time with him and his family. He is true Bible-believing Christian who is not ashamed of the Gospel. Of course the liberals don’t want to hear that nonsense. They’ll now be busy trying to figure out how to distort this picture in Adobe Photoshop.

Below are the words of Rev. Rob Schenck, the man who organized the prayer.

“In the image you see me at the center with my prayer stole as we intercede in Jesus’ name for our brother in Christ and imprisoned pastor, Saeed Abedini, who has suffered in an Iranian prison for one year because of his faithful witness to Christ. Kneeling with me on my left (the significance of the placement should be noted) is the U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, a tea party Republican from Texas. Sen. Cruz just made wall-to-wall headlines for his 20+ hour filibuster opposing Obamacare, the President’s signature legislative achievement.

    Now these people know what their knees are for. Dear Lord please bless these people, and please get our brother out of prison. God Bless America.

    Wow, this is just so heart warming that all these people, including Cruz, took the time to line up outside the Whitehouse to pray for pastor Saeed Abedini. Saeed reportedly has converted thrity souls to Christ in prison. Most of us have not done this our whole lives. Let;s NOT drop this line of prayer, but keep it going.
    This is the ONLY way to raise a nation and a people, by humbling ourselves on our knees.
    Heavenly Father we humbly beseech you to comfort and minister to our Brother Saeed, who is in captivity, comfort his wife and his children, heal him from the beatings which left him with internal bleeding. By his life and blood which he has submitted to you, may you free him from his captivity Jesus. One more little thing Father, make me an instrument of Your Will, that I might serve you more freely from the bonds of my own making.

    When was the last time anyone actually saw a politician actually praying in public? I am NOT going to judge his motive but, it is refreshing to see that Senator Cruz is doing this in front of the White House – only weeks after another man was actually arrested by White House police for doing the EXACT SAME THIING! Nice…

    Lord Jesus, stretch out your mighty hand of deliverance and set Pastor Saeed Abedini free. Strengthen and fortify Ted Cruz and others that stand for YOUR TRUTH in the name of Jesus. Fight against those Lord who would fight against your people as your word declares in Jesus name, so be it Amen!

  • Chris McLean

    So if the pastor is not released, does that mean that god is not real, or he just does’nt care??

    May the universe free him and bless everyone!!

      What would that have to do with God being real or not?

      If pastor Saeed is not released, it means that God has work for him yet in the prison. Already he has led thirty other prisoners to saving knowledge of the one true and living God, Jesus Christ. A decision that will ultimately end up costing many of them their lives. In case you need a reference: Persecuted Pastor Saeed Abedini Leads 30 to Christ in Iran Prison
      The “universe” is a created and neutral entity or with no authority over man nor will. Hence it can’t consciously ‘free or bless’ anyone. I pray that one day you stop worshiping the creation and turn the CREATOR.

    Not our will but yours Lord God. Amen. God Bless you mightily Brother Saeed.

    For God will always keep His eyes upon the righteous and so, He can turn the situation of Ptr. Saeed Abedini into an out of this world event where prisoners can be set free in total freedom of the heart and spirit because of the love of God through the Lord Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit upon the sharing and the witnessing of this servant of the Most High. God bless America- 2 Chronicles 7:14

    14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
