Prayer for Pakistan - #4 on the World Watch List for persecution
Lord, today we pray against persecution in Pakistan. Lord, we are thankful for those historical Christian communities that are allowed to exist. We pray that they would thrive and grow, rather than languish under the added rules and monitoring they experience. We pray for those Protestant Christian communities that experience regular attacks, that you would protect and strengthen them, and that people would grow weary of viewing your followers with suspicion. Lord, we pray for women in Pakistan, especially the Christian women who are targeted for forced marriage, rape and/or abduction. Lord, we pray for the elevation of women in that country--that Pakistanis would realize the precious value of both women and men, so they would not desire to mistreat those made in your image. We pray for helpful resources and provision for women who have already been victimized. We specifically ask your blessing on Open Doors as they provide trauma counseling and do women's ministry. In Jesus' name we pray, amen.
