“Heavenly Father, we lift to you our brothers and sisters living in Pakistan who face growing pressure. As we hear reports of increasing violence and discrimination against them, we pray that You, O Lord, will sustain Your Church during this time of trial. Protect them from false accusations of blasphemy, which have cost many Christian lives, and guard especially the women and girls who are so often kidnapped. We ask that You will act in power to thwart the plans of those who work to harm our sisters and brothers. We pray in the Name of Lord Jesus Christ.
