Heart thread - 01/16/2009

David@Montreal has forwarded a prayer request for Pastor Tanzil Zafar:
LONDON (Religious Intelligence) - The Washington-DC based human rights group, International Christian Concern (ICC) is reporting that a young Anglican priest who was kidnapped on Friday evening by unidentified men was found badly injured near the gate of Saint John's Cathedral Church on Sunday night in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Pastor Tanzil Zafar, a 28-year-old pastor of the Church of Pakistan and father of two children, is being treated at Mission Hospital Peshawar. Munawar Rumalshah, the Anglican Bishop of Peshawar diocese, said, "He was badly traumatized and his body was swollen when we found him near the Cathedral gate."
Almighty God. we hold Tanzil before you and beseech you to uphold him and fill him with your grace, that he may know the healing power of your love. Guide and direct those who minister to him and sustain your faithful servants during times of danger and uncertainty. Amen.
