Tragedies in Pakistan continue.........

Prayer is the tool - Jesus is the answer!

Despite the work of so many institutions, groups and individuals, Pakistan has changed little and infringements of Human Rights continue.  The BPCA has been talking to Diane Ofori of the Christian Party about this and her reply was:

"Stand up and be counted people of GOD! Like the parable of the Samaritan we cannot turn a blind eye like the Pharisees and Levities What we must understand is this, these battles are won in spiritual warfare, the Church of CHRIST must pray!!!!

"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds." 2 Corinthians 10:4 (King James Version)Church of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, set aside time this week to seek GOD in prayer and fasting for our Brothers and Sisters in Pakistan.

"Blessed is the he who has regard the weak; the LORD delivers him out of trouble." Psalms 41:1

GOD Bless


This seems like a sensible message to the BPCA and we are encouraging churches and Christians up and down the country and internationally in joining us for a global day of prayer and fasting, dedicated to bringing peace in Pakistan.  We have set the date of Sunday the 1st August (anniversary of Gojra incident) and ask others to join us in a time of prayer and fasting from 20:00 - 20:00 on Monday 2nd August (or as long as you can manage).    If any churches or brothers are willing to participate please inform us by writing something on our blog.
