Thread: Christian brothers poisoned in Pakistan

    Christian brothers poisoned in Pakistan

    On December 15, three Christian brothers in Gujranwala, Pakistan were poisoned by their Muslim employers who were angered by their faith and their demands for pay. The brothers had left their jobs as sanitation workers at the Ferozewala Pul Banquet & Marriage Hall because they were not receiving their wages. However, they returned when their employers promised them their outstanding wages, a Christmas bonus and overtime pay. When they returned, the brothers were still denied their pay. They were also harassed by staff members who spoke offensively to them about their Christian faith and called them derogatory names. When the brothers finally demanded their due pay, they were threatened with dire consequences if they did not continue their work. The hall owner and hall manager then forced the three to drink poison. Their family was only contacted when two of the brothers, Imran Masih (29) and Irfan Masih (25), were already dead. At last report, the third brother, Aakash Masih (23), was in critical condition. The Peoples Colony police station has registered a murder and deception case against the hall owner and the hall manager. (Source: Compass Direct)

    Pray that the Masih family will rest in the knowledge that the Good Shepherd walks with them through this difficult time (Psalm 23). Pray that Aakash will make a full recovery. Pray that the hall owner and hall manager will repent and come to faith in Christ.

    Praying for everyone to be in our Father's hand for His perfect will to be done.

    I stand in agreement in prayer with you on this issue....
    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have eternal life.

    Hug Help and bless the families of these men.



    Oh Father,

    You told us in Your Word that the world would hate us. We see it all around us, but Lord help us that we do not grow weary of praying for our brothers and sisters who are experiencing it. Lord I trust You that You have a purpose and a plan for Your people even in this. Please pour out Your grace on all involved. Please use this to convict those guilty of their sin, and show them their need for You. Please heal the one brother left alive. Help him to forgive and to have a good testimony before You. Help and bless the families of these men. Glorify Yourself through what You will do.

    IN Your Son's Name,

    AMEN
