Please remember these dear brethren suffering unjustly:
Pakistani pastor Zafar Bhatti. We pray for his spiritual and physical protection in prison and that his life sentence be shortened.
Pray for Shagufta Kausar and her husband Shafqat Emmanuel who were sentenced to death for blasphemy in 2014. We pray that their sentences would be appealed and they would be released. We also pray for the Lord’s provision and protection for their four children.
Pray for the release of Imran Ghafur Masih who is serving a life sentence because a neighbour falsely accused him of burning pages of the Koran.
Ask that the Lord through His Spirit would reassure and encourage Christians in Pakistan that they have infinite value and worth in Christ even though they are so lowly regarded in their country.
Ask the Lord to give Pakistan’s politicians courage and wisdom to reform the blasphemy laws which are often used to target Christians. We want to see an end to the imprisonment and killing of innocent people.
Ask for the Lord’s special protection over Christian women and girls who are at risk of abduction, rape, forced marriage and forced conversion to Islam.
