Pray for a Church Attacked in the Sahiwal District

[403] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Sahiwal Church Members.

On March 4, about 15 Muslim men attacked a church in the Sahiwal district. The attack was led by the landlord of the building next door, who doesn’t want Christians beside him and is fighting to regain control of the land for his own use. The church members had gathered to build a boundary wall around their property when the Muslim men entered the church and started beating them. They threw bricks inside the building, damaging the pulpit, chairs and many Bibles. Three Christian men were seriously injured in the attack, and many women were also beaten, including a woman who was dragged on the floor and stripped naked. Eventually, police arrived at the church to stop the attack, and the injured were taken to a clinic. The police then took time to help the Christians build the wall around the building. Pray for the healing of those injured and traumatized by the attack. Pray that the church will remain strong in its witness, and pray that the attackers will come to know the Lord. Praise God for the kind police officers who helped restore peace and build the boundary wall.
