Pray for Pakistan - facebook page

Commentators said that media suppression had increased noticeably during 2018. Journalists said there was more censorship and a growing clampdown on dissent in mainstream and social media. Some media organizations had to downsize or close down due to declining advertising revenue. Authorities are said to have pressured businesses to withdraw their advertising. Printing presses also faced pressure to refuse to print certain newspapers. Pray that God will break the spirit of fear over this nation. Pray this over the government, over those who speak out for human rights, and over the Church in this nation (The Bible, 1 John 4:18).
