I Prayed have prayed
Father, we ask You to preserve Your people all throughout the earth; and we ask You to protect Afghanistan.

Afghanistan’s last remaining Jew, Zabulon Simantov, has decided to remain in Afghanistan despite the Taliban’s takeover due to his refusal to give his estranged wife a get, a Jewish divorce document, according to Makor Rishon…

“…If I had left, there would have been no one to maintain the synagogue,” he said.

Simantov…had previously stated he was planning to leave during the High Holy Day season…

Business Moti Kahana offered to fund a private airplane to take Simantov to Israel, an offer the Afghan Jew initially accepted. Security guards filmed Simantov reading the “Tefilat Haderech” prayer, the prayer read before traveling…

However, Simantov changed his mind at the last second, Makor Rishon said…

According to a report by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Taliban took the synagogue’s Torah, scribed in the 15th century, and sold it on the black market…

Father, reveal Your Son, the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, to this precious man, Zabulon Simantov.

I pray that the Jews get the synagogue’s Torah back scribed in the 15th century, that the Taliban stole and sold on the black market according to this article. I pray that this man will follow God’s orders for him and his wife in Jesus mighty name.

Father, the time is NOW that You are regathering Your people! You are sending fishers and hunters to bring them to Israel, for the glory of Your name. I ask that as the shofar sounds in Elul, that you will BREAK OPEN Zabulon Zimantov’s ears to hear Your call to Eretz Israel! We call him chosen by Yeshua and we call him home! Your Messiah is calling!

Reach this one, Father God! By faith, we mark his heart with the precious blood of Jesus CHrist, shed for him, for the forgiveness of his sins and for his eternal life. Crash in, Holy Spirit, and show him, as You did with Saul, that it’s NOT in the keeping of Torah or any of his good works, that he will be saved, but instead, by trusting on the Name of Yeshua, that dates back much further than the beautiful hand written Torah that was robbed from the Jews there. We bless Simantov with YOUR PLANS and PURPOSES for his life and for a DIVINE APPOINTMENT with You, His Maker. Come, Lord Jesus, COME to Afghanistan! Your desire is that NONE would perish, but that ALL would have everlasting life! Good Shepherd, GO AFTER THIS LAMB, we pray! AMEN!
