Update: Prayer Request from A Christian In Pakistan
Last week we shared a prayer request on facebook and twitter from a Christian in Pakistan. They had requested prayer for the elections that happened this past weekend. Here is an update from them: Thank you for praying for the election. There was a lot of violence throughout the day with the Taliban having threatened to blow up polling stations. Karachi saw much violence. Pakistan saw what looked like the beginnings of ‘inqalab’ revelation – which looked beautiful and scary at the same time. It seems calm now but only time will tell. We are asking for prayer for the policy of this new Government under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif. Pray that they will not forget our sisters Asiya Bibi and little Rimsha Masih. Please pray that they will seek a solution for our problem with the Blasphemy law. Our leaders are men who acknowledge God. We pray that they will see Christians as an important part of this nation, to be valued and honored and treated with dignity. Please pray for the Church to be secure in her identity in Christ. We are so thankful for your prayers brothers and sisters. We could not walk into the next day were it not for your prayers. We could not be ambassadors for Christ were it not for the prayers you pour out before His throne. Please pray that in this new regime the blasphemy law will be repealed and for safety of Aasiya Bibi and her children and for the safety of Rimsha Masih and that her case would reach conclusion soon and she would be relocated. I love the way that this believer asks us to pray for those in authority. Would you continue to join with us in lifting up the nation of Pakistan?
