Daily Prayer - Saturday 04 August 2012
Pray for vulnerable Christians in Pakistan who are ground down under the feet of the wealthy and powerful. In a recent incident, believers in Bhondary Wala village have been threatened and abused while trying to save their community’s graveyard from being turned into farmland. A retired army colonel has claimed ownership of the plot, which has been used by Christians for decades, and has built a boundary wall that reduces it to less than a third of its original size, turning the rest over to agricultural use. Only when a government minister intervened were the police persuaded even to investigate the matter. Pray that the Lord will defend these Christians and shatter the rod of their oppressor (Isaiah 9:4).
