The wife of imprisoned pastor Saeed Abedini says she is praying for Meriam Yehya Ibrahim and her family as the Christian Sudanese mother awaits the death sentence for apostasy.

Ibrahim, 27, is eight months pregnant and is currently being detained with her 20 month old son.

The court in Khartoum upheld her death sentence last week after she refused to recant her Christian faith.

Amnesty International and Christian human rights organisations are urging people to contact the Sudanese embassy to protest the sentence.

Naghmeh Abedini told Jay Sekulow Live! that she was praying especially for Ibrahim’s husband because she could relate to the sense of helplessness.

“My heart goes out to the dad, I’m in the same shoes, I have a husband who’s imprisoned, and feeling helpless and feeling that there is a lot of attention but that hasn’t done anything to bring her out,” she said.

“Feeling helpless is what I’ve been praying for them, because that’s how I’ve felt. You can do so much and there can be so much attention but when will they really be released?”
