I Prayed have prayed
Father, we ask that You help all stakeholders bring about the best possible solution to this tragedy. We pray that the standoff will end, and that all U.S. citizens will be brought to safety.

Responding to claims that it is blocking flights carrying Americans and lawful permanent residents (LPRs) from leaving Mazar-i-Sharif (MAZ) airport…, the…State Department reportedly admitted that it has few resources available to facilitate the evacuation and that they have no “reliable” information about the trapped flights…

[S]ources close to the situation told The Daily Wire…that while the State Department is not negotiating landing zones, the Taliban is also making significant demands, effectively creating a “hostage situation” on the ground…

A State Department official, however, told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department’s hands are tied and…they have no resources on the ground to assist or…provide reliable information on the passengers.

“We do not have personnel on the ground, we do not have air assets…, we do not control the airspace—whether over Afghanistan or elsewhere in the region,” the official told the Free Beacon…

The Taliban, of course, said that it has no idea what is going on…

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), who…says he’s received classified briefings on the situation…, confirmed to Fox News Sunday that the “Taliban want something in exchange,” per the Free Beacon.

“McCaul…says the State Department cleared these flights to leave, but that the Taliban is responsible for stopping them. The State Department reportedly confirmed to Congress that flights…are being held until the Taliban gives its approval,” the Free Beacon noted…

A source told The Daily Wire that the Taliban appears to be requesting “tens of millions.”

The Biden administration has, over the past several days, been operating as though the crisis in Afghanistan is over…

Yahweh Nissi, in the mighty name of Jesus we decree that Your Word stands and that according to Deut. 28:7, for all who revere You, You will make a way of escape from Afghanistan. God, we covet Your word and decree that You will cause the enemy to flee from them seven ways for every one way that You have allowed them to pursue our family, children and all innocent. Today, we decree Proverbs 19:9 over every liar in America’s Government and Military, that every false witness shall be punished and the liar caught in this time. Have mercy on them Lord, even as You tear down every wicked structures. Enough. Enough. Enough. Amen.

The state department of the United States can only have their hands tied by a terrorist regime in one way… when they agree to it beforehand. (for the most part, that’s called government corruption)
The sheer military superiority of our nation, over a terrorist group like the Taliban, is so overwhelming that it’s hard to imagine what type of cowardice and lunacy is running the state department. Then again, we are watching it daily, minute by minute.
We have precision weapons that can take out a single individual on any given day. We have so much information on the Taliban it’s mind-boggling.
So for the state department to say that is nothing more than another lie that they are trying to force feed our nation.

Dear Heavenly Father, I humbly ask for Your Favor over the right thinking leaders in our country and in the countries of our allies. Favor over every single person trapped by these men. Favor for us looking on and praying. Favor for the Christians who live in the region of Islam….YOUR DIVINE FAVOR over this whole event as it continues to unfold. I know You have EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING in YOUR POWERFUL GRIP. For us who love You, keep us in Your Hands Father, we want to remain in the hands of THE LIVING GOD.

For those who mock and despise all of us who love YOU, let them audibly hear “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, I will judge you.” For the Taliban, let them know “it is a TERRIBLE, DREADFUL,TERRIFYING, FEARFUL thing to fall into the hands of THE LIVING GOD.” Your Son and our Savior told His disciples to Fear You Alone, saying, “after we have been killed, You have the authority to throw us into hell. Yes, He said, I tell you, fear Him! “

I thank You Jesus for dying to give us access to Your Father. I thank You Holy Spirit for making my imperfect words perfect in The Lords hearing. And I thank You Father God for Your protection from every weapon the Taliban has, for Your Authority in us to refute EVERY ACCUSING TONGUE and YOUR TOTAL VINDICATION. I ask this for Your Glory. Amen

Hebrews 10:30-31 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Luke 12:5. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear the One who, after you have been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear Him!

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.
