Pray for distraught Christian widow in Pakistan

Please remember Sana, a Christian
widow, in your prayers.
On March 21, a group of young Muslim men attacked a Salvation Army church in Hyderabad, Pakistan and shot to death 25-year-old Jamil and another man, reported our sister mission VOM USA.

Recently, VOM staff visited with Jamil's wife, Sana, who had been married to Jamil for one month before his tragic death. Sana is very emotionally fragile at this time.

"One minute she is laughing and the next she is crying. Her behaviour is very erratic," said the VOM team leader. Jamil had been supporting Sana, his parents and two siblings by working as a sweeper.

You can help by praying!
  • Pray that Sana will receive the care she needs and be encouraged by the prayers of her Christian family.
  • Pray that she will look to God in her grief, resting in the unfailing mercy and love of her Father.
  • Pray also for God to comfort Sosan, the wife of the other man killed in the attack, and for their six children.
  • Pray many will continue to stand as witnesses for Christ in Pakistan, even amid violence and hostility.
You can also pray for and stand with Asia Bibi, another woman in Pakistan suffering for her faith in Jesus Christ. Asia has been sentenced to death for blasphemy and is currently waiting for a court's ruling on her appeal.

To learn more about Asia's case and to sign a petition calling for her release, visit www.CallForMercy.com.

As of Friday, more than 2,000 Canadians have signed the petition! Be sure to add your voice!
