After services on Sunday, Jan. 30, two militants shot two leaders from the Church of Pakistan in the city of Peshawar as the leaders drove away from the church together. Assistant Pastor William Sirai was killed, and Pastor Patrick Naeem was injured. Pray for the church and for the families of the pastors as they grieve, and pray for Patrick’s wounds to heal. Pray for the church to remain bold in its witness to the predominantly-Muslim surrounding community. Pray also for the attackers to be brought to justice.
