A PRAYER FOR AFGHANISTAN FROM AN INTERCESSOR
Inspired by a worldwide call to prayer by Pastor Jack Hibbs for those in Afghanistan
Lord God Almighty,
”We ask that You intervene in Afghanistan. This is a horrific situation and we pray that You provide safety and comfort and deliverance to those in danger from the Taliban. You know exactly who they are and where they are” for You are El Roi, the God Who sees me.
We pray for our enemies, “that the Islamic jihadists see visions of You Jesus in the sky, in their dreams, in the atmosphere.” We have read and we have heard that You reveal Yourself in miraculous ways. Some have even reported that they have heard You speak or seen You in a dream or a vision and as a result, their lives were changed. So, do it again Lord! For Your Glory and the honor of Your Name!
Jesus, Your Name is above ALL names! Flood the atmosphere with the Light, the Life, and the sound of Your great and all-powerful Name! Open the airwaves for the Gospel to spread like wildfire throughout the land. Cause the fear of the Lord to fall heavy on this place and turn people’s heart and minds to desperately seek Your face. Empower Voice of Hope and other Christian radio stations to flourish over the airwaves. Release Your Truth and DROWN OUT ALL COMPETING VOICES and distractions. Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Light of the world, shine brightly into the hearts of these people and into the spiritually dark places in this land. Extend Your right hand of Power and Majesty into these circumstances and shatter the work of the enemy. Set the captives free and open their eyes to see Your Glory!
God of Angel Armies, surround the helpless with Your favor and protection like a shield. Where there is fear, flood hearts and minds with faith and trust in You. Bless them with the promise of Your presence and deliver them from all their fears. You are the Lion of the tribe of Judah! Our victor, Jehovah Nissi. You roar with power and have won!
El Gibbor, we pray for success for those who are needing retreat and evacuation. For our brothers and sisters in Christ who are serving there as missionaries; and for military personnel; for those Americans who are trying to get home as well as personnel from around the world who are working there. Deliver any other person; only You know. Shelter them under Your wings and surround them with Your angelic hosts to guard them in all their ways. Protect them from physical harm, dangerous accidents and spiritual attacks and lay bare all the schemes of the enemy.
For those who remain and for those U.S. military personnel who are there to protect, strengthen them in their body, soul and spirit and bless them with a double portion of favor, protection, and persevering faith. We ask for a special anointing on the underground church to thrive, not just survive. Send the fire of heaven to fall fresh all around. Cleansing, anointing, and consecrating them for Your Kingdom purposes.
We pray that all the blessings of the Kingdom of God come in power.
We commit this into Your hands.
By the authority of the One who is the Hope of the world, Jesus.
Please join in praying that God opens the airwaves over AFGHANISTAN for Christian radio stations like Voice of Hope and other media and electronic outlets that He anoints to flourish with the hope of the Gospel, That He silences all competing voices, and shatters all the works of the enemy with the PROCLAMATION of His TRUTH. May we being a faithful praying bride! Share your prayer below!
