Release International Prayer Shields, Afghanistan


Afghanistan

Esin (yesterday’s prayer) and her mother and brother had only revealed to each other recently that they had become Christians – for fear of reprisals from relatives. Pray this family can be reunited: Esin’s family have fled to a third country.


Afghanistan

Pray for a young Afghan Christian woman, ‘Esin’, who fled to India in mid-August after receiving death threats from neighbours. She could now be forced to return to Afghanistan because her visa has expired.


Afghanistan

Pray for Christians in Afghanistan, that though they are few in number, they will be strong in their faith, bold in their witness and fruitful in their ministries, for His glory.


Afghanistan

The strength of the Taliban resurgence is likely to embolden extremists more widely in Afghanistan: Christians in neighbouring Pakistan may now be at even greater risk. Ask God to protect His people across the region.


Afghanistan

Under Sharia (Islamic law), being exposed as a Christian in Afghanistan puts people at risk of being charged with apostasy, which is punishable by death or imprisonment. Ask God to frustrate the efforts of those trying to identify Christians.


Afghanistan

Ask God to protect His people, especially Afghans who have converted to Christianity. Pray that they will be undetected and like Moses who ‘persevered because he saw Him who is invisible’ (Hebrews 11:27).


Afghanistan

Pray for Christians, including foreign workers, in Afghanistan where the return to power of the Taliban in August has prompted fears of renewed persecution.
