July-Tuesday 5

Pray for Christian school-children in Pakistan, who face much discrimination and hostility at government school. For example, Naveed Rafique (aged 13) can not move up to the next grade because he did not pass his Islamic Studies exam. The reason he did not pass was that he was not allowed to recite from Quran because he had not performed wuzu (also called wudu, the ritual washing that Muslims must do before praying and, according to some Muslims, also before reading the Quran). Another problem is that school textbooks portray non-Muslm Pakistanis as inferior, untrustworthy and disloyal. Pray that the lives of the Christian children many shine amongst their classmates and prove the falseness of this message.
