Afghan Christians Need Protection, Provision

[168] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Front-line workers.

Front-line workers request prayers for Afghan Christians living in the country and for those who have fled to neighboring countries for protection. “The crisis in Afghanistan is not over,” said one Afghan Christian leader recently. Afghan believers who have fled Taliban rule mostly live in refugee camps in nearby nations. With little to do, many feel isolated and depressed. Christians who have stayed request prayers for protection and that God will raise up new leaders within the country to help disciple young believers and those who have recently come to faith, mostly through online ministry efforts. With winter approaching, they also request prayers for provision in a country where as many as 18 million people are reported to face acute food insecurity.
