( - A nine-year-old Pakistani Christian girl was gang-raped and murdered on April 9. Nisha Javid was abducted while walking near her home in Essangri village, Punjab province.

Her battered body was found two days later in a canal. Although the police were initially involved in the search for Javid, they have since taken little action in apprehending the perpetrators. Christians believe the attack, which occurred the day before Good Friday, was an attempt to frighten and intimidate the Christian community.

Pray for the Javid family as they grieve. Pray that, in their sufferings, they will know Christ's abounding comfort (2 Corinthians 1:5). Pray that those responsible for this attack will be brought to justice and turn to Christ in repentance.
