Pray for Afghanistan

Pray for Afghanistan

We have been praying for Afghanistan as a church here are a few ways to pray.

Five ways to pray for Afghanistan today

  1. Please pray for the small group of believers in the country. They are walking on eggshells and are uncertain who to trust. Pray that they find strength, wisdom, and supernatural peace in God’s promises.
  2. Pray for the displaced. A new wave of refugees is expected to come from Afghanistan to many parts of the Middle East and the rest of the world. Pray for God’s protection and provision over them in their journeys.
  3. Pray for the women. Many women fear that the Taliban rule would mean they would be stripped of opportunities for education. Women involved in education during the past years could also be at risk – pray for their protection.
  4. Pray for the sick. Though underreported in international media, Covid-19 cases are spiking in the country and hospitals are limited in what they can offer. There is no certainty as to how the healthcare system will be able to sustain itself with the new Taliban government. Pray that the healthcare system will not collapse.
  5. Pray that the country will not be a haven for extremists. The Taliban government of 20 years ago are known enablers of extremist Islamic organisations. With their newfound control over Afghanistan, the country could be host to a new generation of terror groups.

As it is important to ensure we are praying in knowledge and truth, for this reason, we urge you to use trustworthy sources. The missionary committee recommends:

Open Doors – example article Afghanistan confirmed to be under Sharia Law, posing a grim future for secret believers

The Gospel Coalition – example articles How to pray for Afghanistan and the Taliban and How Afghan Pastors Reflect on God’s Sovereignty.
