Pray for Pakistan

Please pray for peace and love in the hearts of those who are daily battered with insecurity and violence in a region that means so much to so many. Pray also for the dead and those left behind to mourn.


Someday perhaps, the poem,
murdered but still bleeding on every page,
will be revealed to you.

Someday perhaps, the banner
of that song bowed low in waiting
will be raised to its great height by a tornado.

Someday perhaps, the stone
that is an abandoned heart on the verge,
will pierce you with its living vein.

Faiz Ahmed Faiz (1911- 1984)

It's so sad-and pointless. I couldn't understand why she went back really- there was only one end for her in sight.
ACN are doing their best to work with the battered Christians there-
prayers, prayers, and more prayers.
