I Prayed have prayed
Father, we ask that You will not allow evil to triumph in this region. Deliver them, Lord. We ask You to grant peace to Afghanistan and surrounding countries.

And the winners are: Qatar, Iran, China, Russia, Turkey, and Pakistan. Although each of these countries have different agendas, their common unifying factor is the benefit received from energy and mineral resources; and that this is portrays U.S humiliation and a rapid demise and shift from U.S. power. They want the U.S. gone from the region. 

The victors in Kabul will be those who benefit from the Taliban taking power. They will also be those who benefit or cheer as the US appears humiliated.

Among those “winners” are Qatar, Russia, China, Pakistan, Turkey and Iran. This can be seen in various ways. Most of these countries hosted the Taliban or tacitly backed them. Others, such as Turkey, have sought to have a role in post-American Afghanistan…

Russia and China have both hosted Taliban delegations in recent years and months. They want to have open channels to the Taliban and consider recognizing them as the new government. This is important at the United Nations Security Council. With backing from Russia and China, the Taliban can get the international clout they need and eventually obtain wider recognition…

The Russian ambassador will discuss with the Taliban representative the details of the external protection of the diplomatic mission of the Russian Federation, Kabulov said.

This means that Russia may consider recognizing the Taliban at a future date. Russia could help put the wind in the sails of the Taliban.

But Russia has its own background in Afghanistan. It has noted that the US-backed Afghan government has fallen quickly. Russia wants to secure Central Asia as well, including its southern flank.

That means the chaos of Afghanistan must not spread. It will want to work with China, Pakistan, Turkey and Iran to make sure that the Taliban are contained and come to power in a stable way…

For now, the Afghanistan debacle is a major setback for the US globally in terms of image and the perception that US-backed systems tend to be as weak and temporary as the grass that greens with the spring and withers in the fall.

Our government seems bent on delivering us to our enemies piece by piece. Wake up church. We need Christian’s running for every elected office with prayer warriors backing them all. If we don’t take our country back now, don’t be surprised at how quickly democracy is gone.

Unbelievable! You can’t leave a huge vacuum like the U.S. left, because, guess who fills it?? What Biden and this administration did to Afghanistan and America cannot be undone. They destroyed 20 years of work! This administration does not represent me and it doesn’t represent Americans!! This government may have lost their values, but we haven’t!! What we have been watching in Afghanistan is heartbreaking and an abomination!! The Taliban has a list of the Christians and they are hunting them now, so they can crucify them!
It is true, Russia, China, Turkey, Pakistan, Iran, Qatar and I’m pretty sure you could add, North Korea to the long list. I don’t think any of us were prepared for what happened over just one week end!!
Pray for the Christians in Afghanistan, there are thousands of them! And, pray for America, because there are enormous amounts of terrorists coming across our borders and I just heard, there are lots of Russians and Chinese, coming across too!
May all this administration’s plans boomerang on them!

Heavenly Father, the situation I read about today can cause me to be fearful. But “ For God has not given you a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 I pray, Lord, that you will draw my heart and mind to your word, that I will like David did, encourage my self with Psalms and worship. May I use the power of prayer that you have given to all who walk with you. I pray for the people of Afghanistan, for your hand of mercy and justice to bring about your will. We know you are all knowing and all mighty, nothing is off course. May all that transpires today be used by you for your glory. Give courage and wisdom to those in positions of authority, protection to the innocent and hope to us all. May thy kingdom come and thy will be done. Amen
