Urgent Prayer for Afghanistan
I’m not going into any political positions today. It’s just a quick reminder to everyone, whether you’re a Christian or not. There is a terrible urgency to the situation in Afghanistan.
With the withdrawal of the U.S. from that country, we all knew the inevitable would happen.
The Taliban’s return was imminent. You see, the United States did its best, while other countries ignored these dangerous situations in the Middle East.
Yes, England and other European countries sent their military, but it wasn’t the same commitment as the United States. It never is.
Even though I disagree with the fact that we were there in the first place, once we were there, we should have completed the military training, helped with the educational system, and helped stimulate the economic system of Afghanistan.Oscar Roca
What I would like everyone to pray for:
For the entire Afghani people. Regardless of whether they are Muslim, Christian or not religious. Especially for those who have helped the U.S. over the last decade, who are citizens of Afghanistan. Pray for everyone who is Christian. This is the largest religious minority in the country.
What we heard before the Taliban arrived was that letters were going out to Christians across the country, including churches. These letters were threatening all Christians by telling them that they knew who they were and that they would come after them.
What was amazing, amazing and beautiful is that most Christians decided to stay there. I do not know what I would do if I got a letter like that.Oscar Roca
One thing I know is that the Holy Spirit has filled, guided and given the remaining Afghanis the power we need here in America. It is a power that can only come from God. This peaceful and powerful guidance of the Holy Spirit is what this land needs also. Again, I want to keep this short and to the point.
