Afghanistan

  • Pray for the government and peace talks between the government and the Taliban. Pray for an end to anarchy, a discrediting of Islamic extremism and disempowering of war lords and terror groups. Pray that the international troops may make a difference in the peace process and the future of Afghanistan prior to their departure in 2014.
  • Pray for lasting peace, effective reconstruction, and improved economic opportunities. Remember the many Afghans who this winter are struggling to stay warm and provide for their families’ basic needs.
  • Pray for women who were severely depressed by the Taliban regime. They were forbidden employment and education, restricted to the home and had no recourse to justice. The new constitution provides increased opportunities for women. Pray that Afghan women will find spiritual, economic, political, and social freedom, but especially that they find Christ.
  • Pray for the unreached people of Afghanistan in all the people groups: Pashtun, Tajik, Hazara, Uzbek, Turkmen, Baluch, Noorestani. May there be reconciliation among tribes as well as to our Father.
  • Pray for the Afghan believers who live in fear of threats and violence from state and family. Pray that local believers would mature in Christ, grow in unity and that godly leaders would be raised up. Pray for the security of workers currently in the country as they try to support local Christians and show the love of Christ.
  • Pray for media outreach to the country: Pray for Christian radio programs transmitted via short wave, TV programs transmitted by satellite, and audio and audiotext scripture files shared via mobile phones.
  • Pray for those involved in producing the programs and those translating, editing writing scripts etc. The work load for everyone is huge and the pressure constant.
  • Pray for the Afghans who daily respond to the radio and TV programs by contacting call- centers by mobile phone. One organization reports an average of four calls a day, with about 50 first time callers every month.
