I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we lift the people of Afghanistan, the Christian church, and the humanitarian relief teams to you right now. We pray for continual protection from this Taliban-controlled nation. We ask you increase their keen awareness of God’s presence in the midst of this crisis. Also, provide all the basic necessities for the hundreds of Afghans that are resettling in the United States but most importantly that they would see Christ in our efforts.

In these days of turmoil for Christians worldwide, we need more than ever to understand the power God has provided to us to overcome and act boldly. The people of Afghanistan are heavy on the hearts and in the prayers of intercessors.  Recently, IFA has highlighted the public demonstrations of grace and extraordinary collaboration by many Christian humanitarian aid organizations and brave individuals who are delivering rescue and relief efforts for those fleeing the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Sports celebrity Tim Tebow recently joined Samaritans Purse (an IFA partner organization) to help aid the people evacuated from Afghanistan. “Samaritan’s Purse has been partnering with organizations on the ground to get men, women, and children out of this horrific situation. We have been able to sponsor flights that have brought hundreds to safety—one of our partners made three trips that brought out 700 people in one day! We have also supported the evacuation of 80 missionary families via land routes.” Also, Glenn Beck and David Barton both are working with the Nazarene Fund to rescue persecuted Christians and other refugees from Afghanistan. Nazarene Fund raised over $28 million for rescue operations in Afghanistan.

Force Recon Marine Chad Robichaux, whose Mighty Oaks Foundation was able to get up to 2,000 people to safety in just a few days. You can hear his amazing stories on our September First Friday Prayer Conference Call. Click HERE to watch. You will be moved by his firsthand accounts of the harrowing rescue operations conducted in Afghanistan.  You will not want to miss this interview of documented faith in action.

Kenneth Copeland Ministries allowed Glenn Beck and David Barton to borrow their jet which carried them and their crews to the Middle East to evacuate Christians in Afghanistan. Beck said his efforts have helped over 5,000 Christians get out of the country. In an exclusive interview with IFA last Thursday, U.S Senator Ron Johnson gave us an update on the current state of Americans stranded in Afghanistan. Go here to hear the full interview.

Intercessors for America’s new initiative, Pray and Act USA: Afghanistan brings attention to ways intercessors can deliver prayer and action to the continuing crisis in Afghanistan, focusing on the Americans and allies left behind. We have a Prayer Guide and Action steps (send a message to elected officials on the issue) and invitations to support viable rescue operations in Afghanistan. Our donations are going to Mighty Oaks who is helping with rescue operations through SaveOurAllies.

As an intercessor as you pray and act I want to encourage you from God’s word, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (Dt 31:6).  It is important to accept the reality of the challenge, then ask God how to take it from there. His Holy Spirit will guide you into appropriate spiritual action.

Be sure to visit the new Pray for America’s Leaders website to pray for your state leaders and those from all over the Nation!

And join us live on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:15 pm ET —IFApray.org/LIVE or (713) 775-7430.

I see a woman in black burqa with a young child holding onto the skirt, walking down a deserted road through a beautiful valley.
This isn’t the way I would choose to move this family, but God assures me for her it is best.
HE Is watching over every breath in that nation from whatever source.
Amen may we lift HIS NAME ON HIGH

Praise You Father for all these raising up to help. Please bless them in every way physically and spiritually. Father praise You for these stories of bringing people to safety. Thank You for continuing to hide these ones in need under the shelter of Your wings to get them out. Please reveal Yourself to the Tailiban members, may they see You and turn from their wicked ways to Jesus, from death to Life. Thank You and praise You that Your ways are higher than ours. In Your Name Jesus

The interview with chad Robichaux was awesome. Such a heartbreaking situation, but so so encouraging to see the miracles being done. Praying for those precious people still in Afghanistan, May they be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
