Pray for Pakistan on Sunday, August 24, 2008
Lectionary Text and Prayer for Pakistan: Matthew 16:13-20
God, we thank you today for those who confess that Jesus is the Christ around the world and who are a part of your Church, the Body of Christ. We pray today for our brothers and sisters in Pakistan asking that you would help them be faithful to you as they seek to be your Church in that context. We pray for all the people of Pakistan during this time of political transition asking you for peace and stability during these days. We pray for our partners, Church World Service – Pakistan and the National Council of Church of Pakistan (NCCP) asking that you would bless their ministries as they reach out and share your love in tangible ways. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
