Please Pray for the People of Afghanistan

I am forwarding this request from Franklin Graham. Please join with us in making today a day of prayer for the people of Afghanistan.

Dear Friend,

Thousands of people, including up to 15,000 Americans, are desperately trying to escape from Afghanistan after the country’s fall to the Taliban.

These Islamic extremists, who have now taken Afghanistan back by force, have a history of brutality, including beheadings and public executions. Time is short and the need is urgent, and that is why I am calling for a day of prayer this Sunday, Aug. 22.

With the Taliban blocking access to the airport and all exit routes, this is a life-or-death situation for Christians and other religious minorities, and all those who worked with or for America over the past two decades. There is no hope for these people to get out safely—apart from a miracle from the hand of God—and that’s what we need to pray for.

Samaritan’s Purse is doing what we can through partners working to help people get out of the country. It is a difficult and tragic situation. Will you please join me in praying for God to intervene in a mighty way?

President, Samaritan’s Purse

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. [James 5:16 (NLT)]
