Pray for Afghanistan

Update - September 1, 2021


Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau confirmed Tuesday that about 1,250 Canadian citizens, permanent residents and their family members were left behind in Afghanistan.

While it may seem like a desolate position in Afghanistan, as Christians, our confidence is in our God. Jesus came to set us free. He is our redeemer; our hope in time of need.

  1. Pray that rescue operations will continue and more people will escape to safety. 

  2. Pray for dreams and visions showing clear paths to escape.

  3. Pray for provision of food and water.

  4. Pray for these families who are now without home or nation. Pray that the Body of Christ would step up to the plate to bring the love of Jesus in practical ways.

  5. Continue to pray for miraculous protection for women and children being forcibly taken and those that have already been taken for their protection, salvation, and deliverance.

  6. Pray that the Afghan Church would not lose hope. Pray for unprecedented revival and growth in the midst of persecution.

  7. Pray that many in the Taliban and other Muslims would find Jesus.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7,8

  2. Pray that rescue operations will continue and more people will escape to safety. 

  3. Pray for dreams and visions showing clear paths to escape.

  4. Pray for provision of food and water.

  5. Pray for these families who are now without home or nation. Pray that the Body of Christ would step up to the plate to bring the love of Jesus in practical ways.

"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights fo the poor and needy."

Proverbs 31:8,9

 
 

Update - August 26, 2021


"Canada's effort to airlift those fleeing Taliban rule out of Afghanistan has come to an end, says the acting chief of the defence staff.

A notice sent out this morning from the Immigration Department says that evacuation operations are done and "at this time, no further evacuation flights are being planned."

  1. Continue to pray for God's protection over His people.

  2. As many believers in Afghanistan must keep their faith secret from the Taliban, pray that they would be able to find each other so they can encourage one another.

  4. Continue to pray for miraculous protection for women and children being forcibly taken and those that have already been taken for their protection, salvation, and deliverance.

  6. Pray for Christian organizations that God will give them new avenues where they can minister the love of Jesus in Afghanistan under Taliban rule.

"Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us.  On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again."

2 Corinthians1:9,10

  1. Pray for wisdom for political leaders as they relate to the new administration in Afghanistan.

  2. Pray for God to suppress the brutality. They are fully reliant on Him, as He is the only One who can and will protect them.

  3. Pray that those who are trying to get to help would remain hidden supernaturally as they travel along the same routes where their oppressors are searching.

  4. Pray that the Church in Afghanistan would have courage and perseverance. Pray that they would experience revival in spite of the persecution they endure.

  5. Pray for miraculous protection for women and children being forcibly taken and those that have already been taken for their protection, salvation, and deliverance.

"Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honoured, as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ."

2 Thessalonians 3:1–5

 
 

(The following prayer points was taken from Sean Feucht)

As fellow Believers face an upcoming surge of the enemy and an unprecedented wave of persecution …

- Pray for BOLDNESS! Repeat the prayer of the early church in Acts 4:29: “Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness!”

-Pray for PROTECTION! Many missionaries, pastors and leaders are trapped with the airports closed, borders shut and no way out! Heaven authorized two jail breaks in the book of Acts. Let’s pray for heavenly and angelic interventions TODAY! Pray for Saul to Paul encounters for the Taliban!

- Pray for UNITY! Pray that the Church in America and the world would be UNITED in PRAYER and SUPPORT for the Believers in Afghanistan. This is NOT a partisan political issue. This is a KINGDOM issue.

- Pray for REVIVAL! Pray that the underground church would continue to GROW and EXPAND in these days! Pray for a fresh wave of REVIVAL to spread like a wildfire across the Middle East!

- Pray that God would be GLORIFIED! He is the ruler of heaven and earth. He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. No power or evil on earth can match His might. Pray that He would be glorified WHILE THE WORLD WATCHES!
