Daily Prayer - Tuesday 16 October 2012
A grandmother from a mainly Christian ethnic group was gang-raped and tortured by Burmese soldiers when they invaded her village on 1 May. The 48-year-old Kachin woman had taken refuge in a church building in Luk Pu village after most of the other villagers had fled. Around ten soldiers beat her with rifle butts, stabbed her with knives, stripped and sexually assaulted her over three days. After they left, she was found semi-conscious by some villagers and taken to hospital. She has since been reunited with her family but is deeply traumatised and mentally disturbed. Pray for the healing of her physical and psychological wounds, and that Christians in Kachin state will be delivered from the ravages of the Burmese army.
