PETALING JAYA: Church leaders from different denominations came together on Tuesday night to pray for the safe return of Pastor Raymond Koh.
The leaders - Kuala Lumpur Archbishop and head of Catholic Church of Malaysia Most Rev Julian Leow Beng Kim, Southeast Asia Anglican Archbishop Datuk Ng Moon Hing, Methodist Bishop Dr Ong Hwai Teik and Council of Churches Malaysia general-secretary Rev Dr Herman Shastri - attended the prayers held at the Sungai Way - Subang Methodist Church (SSMC).
A large number of people from 72 churches attended the Ecumenical Solidarity Prayer Service which began at 8pm.
This is the first time church leaders have gathered together in a service jointly organised by SSMC and the Evangelical Free Church of Malaysia.
The wife of Pastor Koh, Susanna Liew, and her children Jonathan, Esther and Elizabeth read scripture and delivered a poem titled "Where is Raymond Koh?"
Speaking at the service, Liew said the family need to know where Koh is and if he is well.
"I want to know why he was snatched from us this way and who is behind this. After 50 days of silence does anyone question why I am crying for answers? For justice," she said.
Previously, candlelight vigils were held nationwide in solidarity with Koh and his family.
Koh, 62, was abducted by a group of men along Jalan SS4B/10 in Petaling Jaya on Feb 13. He was on his way to a friend’s house then.
CCTV footage also showed that at least 15 men in three SUVs were involved in Koh's abduction.
