Nagmeh Abedini holds her daughter Rebekka Grace Abedini, 7, during a prayer vigil seeking freedom for her husband, Boise pastor Saeed Abedini, who was arrested in Iran one year ago. About 600 people gathered at the steps of the Idaho Statehouse in Boise Thursday Sept. 26 to pray for his release. Rebekka Grace sang "Here I Am To Worship," a song she would sing with her father each night at bedtime, with everyone in attendance.
