"A Dangerous Time for Believers"

[182] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Believers in Afghanistan.

A front-line worker who spent years living in Afghanistan says it is a dangerous time for believers in the country but that God is working in spite of the Taliban advance. The front-line worker said believers inside the country are making different choices: some have fled the country, some are in hiding and some are choosing to stay in order to be a light. Believers are receiving threats, and several have been targeted. “Our big concern is that God will give them the grace to weather the suffering and the persecution,” the front-line worker said, and also reminded believers in the US that the majority people group in Afghanistan, the Pashtun, are an unreached people group who desperately need to hear the gospel. “We can pray that God is going to use this and is going to advance His kingdom and further the gospel,” the worker said.

  • Father God, You can do all things. I ask in the name of Jesus that you "blind the eyes" of the wicked to "hide" your precious people in order that they may advance the gospel to the Pashtun and others in Afghanistan without fear. Please strengthen them in their hearts by the power of Your Holy Spirit. May You and our Lord Jesus receive all glory.
