Pakistan (Christians in Pak.)
Three mostly Christian villages in the Khushab district of Pakistan are on alert for expected attacks by Muslims. Recently, a Muslim woman ran away with a Christian man and eloped, which is believed to be the source of these anticipated attacks. After news of the incident began to spread, “local Muslims started demanding the return of the girl” and “threatened to torch all the churches in the locality” as well as abduct Christian girls. Relationships that span different faiths often cause great tension among families and villages in Pakistan.
- Pray for the safety of the couple that ran away.
- Pray for the calming of tensions between the Muslims and Christians involved in this situation.
- Pray that they would be able to work things out without escalating to violence.
