BREAKING NEWS — Pakistani church bombing prompts global call to prayer

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Gospel for Asia) — In the aftermath of one of the deadliest attacks on Pakistan’s Christian community on Sept. 22 that killed 85 at the historic All Saints Church, both Christian and Muslim leaders are calling for prayer for the injured and families of all victims. As believers exited All Saints Church, Peshawar, two suicide bombers detonated their explosive devices, leaving at least 85 dead and 140 injured. “In this time of tragedy, let us pray not only for healing and comfort, but also that God will continue using it to provide peace and turn sympathies toward Pakistani believers who have faced much persecution in the past,” said K. P. Yohannan, founder and director of Gospel for Asia (GFA).
