Among the Christians in Pakistan detained for blasphemy in the first half of 2018 (above) were Sajid Masih and his cousin Patras Masih. Pray for their healing and release: Sajid was badly injured when he leapt from the window of a police building in Lahore where the cousins were being tortured.

Please remember the many Christians detained in Pakistan under charges of ‘blasphemy’, including seven taken into custody between January and June last year.

Pray specifically for a change of heart among the leaders of the Islamist political party Tehreek-e-Labbaik in Pakistan, who have called for the death of Asia Bibi and the judges who acquitted her.


Pakistan
Thank God for the acquittal and release of Punjab farm labourer Asia Bibi after nine years in jail in Pakistan on ‘blasphemy’ charges. Ask God to protect her and her family and enable them to rebuild their lives.


Pakistan
Teenage sisters Rimsha and Riffat have both been abducted, forcibly converted and forced into marriage in Pakistan. Ask God to strengthen them and their parents – and reunite this family.


Pakistan
Our partners in Pakistan say that when girls are abducted and forcibly converted, some parents do not report their daughters’ disappearance because they fear retaliation from influential Muslims in their community. Pray for justice for these families.


Pakistan
Pray that the Government and police in Pakistan will begin to take seriously the issue of the kidnap and forced conversion of women, particularly those belonging to Christian and Hindu communities.
