Today the terrifically sad news came through that Mr Shahbaz Bhatti, Pakistan's Minister for Minorities, a passionate advocate of reform of Pakistan's blasphemy laws, and the only Christian in the cabinet of Pakistan's government has been assassinated.

The video here was recorded recently, and was sent to the BBC to be released in the event of his death.

Tertullian may well have taught that the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church, and I pray it's true, however I find myself thinking of the voices of those slain for proclaiming their faith mentioned in Revelation 6 as they cry "How long, O Lord.."

Here's a hero of the Church, I ask you to join me in praying for his family, his church and his nation.

Pastor bhatti is in he face of Christ and he is receiving the reward of a faithful servant.

My prayers will be for his family and for families like his who are also suffering this same pain.
