Daily Prayer - Sunday 17 June 2012
Many Christians in Pakistan are working as virtual slaves in brick kilns. Their wages are so pitiful that they inevitably get into debt to their Muslim landlords and are bound to them until they have repaid their loans, a process that often takes years or even generations. Their harsh working days can span more than twelve hours, and children of kiln workershardly ever go to school. Barnabas is providing some of these Christian families with monthly food packages, enabling them to save some money (usually over a period of several years) to repay their landlords and break free from bondage. Pray for endurance for all Christian families living in these cruel circumstances and that many more will find freedom and dignity through this project.
