I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, we lift Afghanistan and the Afghan people to You and ask for mercy. Thank You that You love them, and thank You that Your arm is not too short to save. We are beyond human means and so we ask for Your intervention.

Republican lawmakers were on the offensive on Sunday, questioning why President Joe Biden hasn’t issued any public statements on Afghanistan essentially being captured by the Taliban terrorist group after it took Kabul.

“Why is Joe Biden in hiding? He should immediately address the nation and answer for the catastrophic situation in Afghanistan. Conference calls between cabinet secretaries and senators don’t cut it in a crisis,” wrote Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who served tours in Afghanistan in the U.S. Army, on Twitter…

Several days ago, Biden issued a statement blaming former President Donald Trump, who had engaged with discussions with the Taliban on a possible deal.

“When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor—which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019—that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on US forces. Shortly before he left office, he also drew U.S. forces down to a bare minimum of 2,500,” the president said…

His recent comment, however, came in contrast to his speech several weeks ago, asserting that the U.S. pullout of the country is not comparable to the 1975 fall of Saigon that ended the Vietnam War and produced a number of enduring images of American embassy staff hastily leaving on helicopters.

Even several Democrat lawmakers criticized the Biden administration for how it handled the withdrawal. Biden weeks earlier announced that American forces would unconditionally depart the South Asian country after spending 20 years and trillions of dollars on the conflict…

Retired Gen. David Petraeus, the former U.S. commander of Afghanistan, issued a blistering statement, arguing that the pullout and Taliban takeover is “an enormous national security setback…”…

“In this case, the results cannot be sugar-coated… there was a saying that we occasionally used for really bad days and I said, ‘Look if it’s a really bad day in Baghdad or Kabul, just go out to the podium and say we had a terrible day.’ Don’t put lipstick on a pig. It undermines your credibility,” he added…

Father, this is a “situation” that did NOT need to happen! We have godless leaders and others, who have nefarious plans, that are to blame. You know what has been done in secret. Reveal to the American people, and the world, what they have caused! Bring their plans to defeat! Help each of us to really understand what these believers are going through. Lift a spirit of deception and fear from believers, from this country, and the world. Help us see the truth! In Jesus mighty name, we ask.

Prayed with a heavy heart for those in Afghanistan. Your prayer guide was very helpful. I’ve archived it to reference it regularly. Thank you!

It’s either blatant incompetence or it is part of the evil plan to create chaos and death through crisis after crisis world wide. I believe it is the latter.

We pray for God’s supernatural intervention, for His angel’s to defend and protect the innocent, for boldness and spirit-filled power to replace fear and trembling, that God’s people everywhere will pray without ceasing and for beauty out of the ashes.

We praise your Holy Name. Amen.
