Suicide Bombing in Pakistan

On Sunday, September 22, while believers were gathered after a church service for a time of fellowship in Peshawar Pakistan, two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside of the 130-year-old Anglican church killing at least 78 people. This was considered one of the deadliest attacks in recent history on Christians in the predominantly Muslim country of Pakistan.

Believers prepare gravesides for a massive funeral for Sunday’s September 22nd suicide bombing tragedy.

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.
For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
“Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.”
(1 Peter 3: 14, 17)

Lord of Life, we come to You now on behalf of Your church in Pakistan. We know that You are close to the brokenhearted and You seek to bind up their wounds. In the name of Jesus, we ask for a release of supernatural grace to abound over and above the evil that has been committed in Peshawar. We release healing for those who have been injured, and comfort for those who are grieving the loss of their loved ones. For those traumatized by what they witnessed, we ask that You would come and bring peace to their minds.

Jesus, only You can walk amongst death and bring resurrection. Despite the horror and destruction we see, we look to You to redeem this situation in such a way that Your glory will overshadow the devastation and bring about unprecedented change in the hearts of every man and woman in Pakistan. We pray for divine encounters among members of the Taliban: “Saul to Paul” conversions! And they who once persecuted Your church, will become those who love You and Your church passionately.

Since their struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, authorities, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms, we pray for a wave of intercession amongst believers in Pakistan and throughout the world. We stand in the authority of the Risen Savoir proclaiming, “Pakistan belongs to Creator God, and we command the violent spirits that inspire people to murder to be bound in Jesus’ name!” Father God, we ask that You send forth your angels to do your bidding: protection, revelation, and justice.

We Praise You, Lord of Resurrection, for we know that You are working beyond what our eyes can see and what our minds can perceive. Together we proclaim: “On this mountain, He will swallow up the covering which is over all peoples, even the veil which is stretched over all nations. He will He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken.” (Isaiah 24:7-8)

All these people were still living by faith when they died.
They did not receive the things promised;
they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance,
admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.
People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own.
If they had been thinking of the country they had left,
Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one.
they would have had opportunity to return.
Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. (Hebrews 11:13-16)
