Intercession for Afghanistan
"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble." (Psalm 9:9)
You see every man, woman, and child in Afghanistan.
You see Christians persecuted for their faith.
You see women subjugated for their gender.
You see men terrified to oppose the Taliban.
You see terrorists hungry for violence.
You see a people trying to stay alive.
You love them,
and you are calling them to yourself.
God, grant protection over your Afghani children.
Bring them into a knowledge and acceptance of you.
Protect them and assist them in finding safety.
Bring repentance and salvation to those who do evil against their fellow-man.
Convict us who are free to help those oppressed by evil forces
and blinded by evil philosophies.
May we never ignore the misfortunes of those who haven't yet believed in you.
God, give us wisdom, compassion, and motivation to assist the people of Afghanistan.
We call on your great power as we intercede for these terrified people.
In Jesus' name,
