Christian killed over land dispute in Pakistan
(Source: AsiaNews)

Safdar Masih, a Pakistani Christian, was shot to death on October 5 over a land dispute. When Safdar's church in Mian Channu, Khanewal District, purchased land to build an orphanage, their claim on the land was contested by an influential feudal lord. On October 3, church members filed a complaint with police but were pressured to withdraw their petition. Two days later, armed men attacked the village, murdering Safdar and injuring a dozen others, including children. The men also seized the land. The police have yet to file a report about the attack.

Pray the Lord will comfort Safdar's family and friends. Ask God to heal and restore those who were injured.

Ask the Lord to protect and provide for the orphaned children.

Pray the Lord will bring about justice in an unjust world (Psalm 140).
