July-Sunday 3

Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for all those affected by the suicide bombing in Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, Lahore, Pakistan on the afternoon of Easter Sunday (27 March)-the 370 people injured and the loved ones of 74 people killed. We know that the attack was apparently aimed at Christian families enjoying themselves on this special day of celebration of Your resurrection, and yet many Muslims were also amongst the victims. We pray also for those from the splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban who organised this attack and said afterwards that they would continue to attack Christians and other specific target groups. Please take from their hearts this love of violence and draw them to Yourself.
