As the church around the world rejoices over Saeed Abedini's recent release, there are many more Christians still imprisoned in Iran today.

David Yeghnazar, executive director of Elam Ministries, a group that supports the persecuted Church in Iran, says we need to remember and pray for them.

He told CBN News Chief International Correspondent Gary Lane the Islamic Republic is holding at least 92 Christians in various Iranian prisons.

Among them is Maryam (Nasim) Nagash Zargaran, a house church member serving a four-year sentence. She has been imprisoned since July 2013 and is currently in ill health. Authorities only recently allowed her to receive hospital care.
