Islamic extremists have taken control of most of Afghanistan after the withdrawal of international troops.

Thousands of families are fleeing their homes right now as the violence rises. According to the United Nations, the number of people displaced by conflict in Afghanistan has doubled since May. That’s over 200,000 people now desperately searching for a safe place to call home.

Afghanistan remains the second most dangerous country for believers according to the World Watch List. The Taliban continues to have a strong, violent presence as they expand their control over more areas.

Many people have left everything behind and are running for their lives in hope that they’ll find safety. And with the ongoing effects of war, extremism, food shortages and the raging pandemic, they need your prayer now more than ever.

Will you pray over Afghanistan right now?

Pray For Afghanistan: 

  • Pray God will comfort the families fleeing for their lives and provide a safe home.
  • Pray God would bring His miraculous peace and stability over Afghanistan through its leaders.
  • Pray for protection over Afghan believers and the strength to follow Jesus, no matter the cost.
