Pray for Christians Known to Taliban

[243] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for The persecuted and the persecutors.

Christians in Afghanistan have been targeted by the Taliban, according to one front-line worker. As the Taliban seeks to cleanse Afghanistan based on their strict interpretation of Islam, they have targeted some believers. Those who are in the most danger are those who have been believers the longest, since they are the best known. Many of these believers have left their villages or cities due to unsafe conditions. “We are standing with and trusting that God is going to be with them through this time of trial,” the front-line worker said. “We want to be praying for them in these days.” The front-line worker also reminded believers to be praying for members of the Taliban. “God loves Muslims,” he said. “He loves every Muslim; He loves every Afghan; He created them in his image.” Pray for both the persecuted and the persecutors in this country.

  • Father, the mismanagement of the U.S military withdrawal from Afghanistan has helped to create a dire situation for our brothers and sisters in Christ who still reside there. We intercede on their behalf for protection, provision and power. Destroy the heavenly principalities and powers behind the Taliban and lead them to a saving knowledge of Yeshua.

  • Father, So many believers in Afghanistan are living in fear for their lives as the Taliban search them out. I pray for the front-line workers that you will protect them. It is sometimes hard to pray for the members of the Taliban who are so cruel but they are praying for their enemies to come to Christ and I pray the same. Bring them to their knees.
