Twenty-five-year-old Asma Yaqoob died on Sunday after being taken to a specialty burn unit in Lahore’s Mayo Hospital for treatment. BPCA reports that a man whose marriage proposal she had turned down carried out the attack by covering her in a flammable liquid and lighting her on fire. 90% of her body was covered in burns following the attack.
How to Pray: Pray for the family to be comforted in their loss and find forgiveness for the perpetrator, for justice for the attacker, and for him to come to conviction and salvation through Christ. Pray for the community and authorities to have wisdom in protecting Christians from attacks.
