Prayer Focus: Terrorists Crucify Priest, Bomb Park to Kill Christians
As Christians celebrated Easter, terrorists crucified a Catholic priest in Yemen and bombed a park in Pakistan where Muslims and Christians were gathered.
The Associated Press reports, “The death toll from a massive suicide bombing targeting Christians gathered on Easter in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore rose to 70 on Monday, underscoring the ability of militants to stage large-scale attacks despite a months-long military offensive targeting their hideouts.”
Near the beginning of March, ISIS kidnapped Rev. Thomas Uzhunnalil during an attack in which they also killed 16 nurses and nuns. According to the Washington Times, Uzhunnalil was crucified on Good Friday.
