Pray for Afghanistan

The turmoil in Afghanistan has further intensified as the Taliban has moved in after a swift military withdrawal and thousands of Americans are still trapped in the country. Pray for a quick deliverance for those trapped in immediate danger.

Psalm 91:1-4, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler”

Pray for the U.S. and other troops battling forces of violent tyranny. Pray for their safety. May peace come to this region. We intercede for all branches of our military who continue to serve in Afghanistan, for those being deployed, and for all who are in harm’s way. We always hold in honor those in uniform who serve so willingly to preserve liberty and protect the lives of others. Pray for encouragement for their families.

Psalm 27:2-3, "When the wicked come against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this will I be confident”.

Psalm 18:37, “I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them; neither did I turn back again till they were destroyed.”

Bind the demonic powers of violence and murder. Release angels to surround and protect the innocent ones and those fleeing oppression. Pray that every vestige of evil in that ancient land will be destroyed and that its inhabitants will no longer be oppressed. 

Psalm 91; Ephesians 6:12 (Amp.), “For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood (contending only with physical opponents), but against the despotisms, against the powers, against (the master spirits who are) the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.”

We intercede for our Afghan brothers and sisters in Christ. Lord, have mercy. You Who are mighty to save, take pity on the innocent people of this land and preserve them for Your glory. Anoint the soldiers coming to the aid of this people with protection, wisdom, and strength. Surround them with delivering angelic hosts!

We ask for Your mercy on the Afghan people. Lord, shine Your light on this nation. May this people be spared from suffering and may they come to the knowledge of Your Son. Lord, be Afghanistan’s rock and fortress. For Your name’s sake, lead the Afghan people and guide them to establish You as the foundation upon which to build their nation.
People of Afghanistan, arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Thank You, Lord for Your destiny for this nation. We bind the spirits of division and religion and say that you shall no longer cause war, oppression, or strife in this nation! We pray for Your healing and favor upon Your precious daughters, for there is neither male nor female in Christ Jesus. Grant freedom to the Afghan women, including the right to vote and go to school. Lord, Your people humble themselves and pray that You will forgive the sins of the Afghan people and heal their land. We cry out for peace across this land, so that hearts may turn to the gospel. 

Leviticus 26:6, “I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid. And I will remove harmful beasts from the land, and the sword shall not go through your land.”

Psalm 106:1, “O give thanks to the LORD; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.”
