Todays we pray for Afghanistan. This is another country that is firm in its Islamic beliefs. New believers will expect to be either turned into mental hospitals or executed as it makes no sense to the people why anyone would want to leave Islam.
For more information Open Doors USA has some details. They estimate a few thousand Christians in the population of 34 million.
Please pray with me and add your prayers in the comments.
Father, we pray for Afghanistan. This middle eastern country has long been opposed to your move, we pray for a mighty move of your love. Just as you used a few men with Gideon to conquer a nation we pray that the few thousand believers inside Afghanistan will rise us and be used by you. Let their love for you and passion be so infectious that we will hear reports of hundreds if not thousands of the Afghan people turning to you. We pray for the leaders, we ask that they make wise choices and that they will come to know you. We pray protection and strength for those who are following you. Amen
