Challenges for Prayer
You can ask God :
to bring peace to this land. People are weary from war and the problems it causes the country, but fighting continues.
to help people translate the Bible into all the languages of Afghanistan, and to make recordings so that people who can’t read can hear the Word of God.
that people listening secretly to Christian radio will find Jesus and help others find the hope and peace he brings.
to protect the lives of Afghan and foreign workers who care for people in need.
