- PAKISTAN: On 22 September 2013, suicide bombers attacked the historic All Saints Church in Peshawar, Pakistan after a worship service, killing at least 85 people and injuring over 100 more, several of which were children. Please commit your prayers to the victims and their families. Please also pray that the Pakistani government will bring those involved with planning and executing this senseless act to justice, and that the government will do more to protect religious minorities throughout the country.
