Pakistan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

A definition of the word contend refers to striving against a rivalry or contending with an enemy for the control of a port. Today, we contend in our prayers for the nation of Pakistan. We declare that God has no rivals, and no other religion or extremist movement will rival God’s Kingdom in Pakistan. Pray for the persecuted Christian community, that they will experience God’s favor, kindness and refuge. Pray that the stronghold of Islam will be chased down and destroyed by King Jesus. Instead the Church in Pakistan will grow in number and in strength even in the face of difficult times (The Bible, Nahum 1:7-8).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

With the world’s third largest Muslim population, Pakistan is the only country created in the name of Islam. Pakistan is also one of the world’s most corrupt countries. Pakistan’s political and economic systems are crippled by the interference of refugees and radical Islamists. Pakistan hosts 1.4 million refugees and at least 48 terrorist and extremist groups – including the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and IS. The country’s culture of Islamization with its notorious blasphemy laws has led to devastating consequences for Christian Believers.
