It is a country where you do not want to spend a vacation, not even for a day. A country where only people with a special calling from God can go to. Such people are called missionaries.
The moment you set foot on this territory you will get to meet fanatical people, wild people, people who can be remedied only by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A country where only a simple Christian gesture made by someone is answered to with savage crimes. However, God has found people whose hearts beat for this country.
Pakistan needs missionaries through prayer. That means that you and I can take a few minutes a day and pray for those who lead Pakistan. Let us pray for the Christians who live there, for missionaries and those who live in terrible persecution. This week you can travel in prayer with the Genesis mission to this country.
