Pakistani Christians held a prayer vigil for the victims of the Army Public School terror attack.
According to details, this prayer vigil was held in Lahore’s Liberty chowk where Christians gathered in large number to mark the first anniversary of the heinous terror strike at the Army Public School in Peshawar.
During this vigil, Christians lit candles to show solidarity with the victims and their families as well as remembered the 144 martyrs who had lost their lives to the barbarism. They were carrying placards which read “I am a Pakistani Christian and I say no to Terrorism.”
Apart from lighting candles and writing condolence messages, Christians collectively prayed for the families affected by this barbarism. “Today as we remember the victims of APS attack that happened a year back, let’s pray for all the families who suffered and are suffering right now. May the Lord’s peace be with them.
Let us also pray for those who are so trapped in Satan’s clutches that they can’t see the difference between right and wrong. Let us pray that the Lord may open their eyes and soften their hearts that they may see and turn from their ways. For God wants all to be saved. No sin is big enough for God to forgive.”
Participants also strongly condemned terrorism and chanted slogans saying “it is our duty to raise voice against terrorism.”
