Prayer for Afghanistan and the Nations!
Updated: Oct 20, 2021
“O Sovereign LORD, Creator of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them.
“You spoke long ago by the Holy Spirit through our ancestor David, your servant, saying, ‘Why were the nations so angry? Why did they waste their time with futile plans?
“The kings of the earth prepared for battle; the rulers gathered together AGAINST the LORD and AGAINST his Messiah.’
“In fact, this has happened here in this very city! For Herod Antipas, Pontius Pilate the governor, the Gentiles, and the people of Israel were all united against Jesus, your holy servant, whom you anointed.
“But everything they did was determined beforehand according to your will.
“And now, O LORD, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word.
“Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
“After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:31
O Sovereign LORD! Stretch out your hand! Reach out to us in this divine debacle of mayhem that the enemy has so craftily created. Stretch out your hand toward the Christians in Afghanistan and all the Nations of the earth. Stretch out your hand to your people and give us courage and holy boldness.
We lift our voices in unison today! We stand in the gap for Afghanistan and her people who were made in your image. We make our petitions know to you today, O Sovereign LORD. We know these enemies are again you so it makes them against us who believe in your name.
O Sovereign LORD! Give your people BOLDNESS. Give us courage in these perilous and tumultuous last days. Let us not be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Let us spread the Good News that Jesus saves. Let us STAND UP for what is right! Stand up for the innocent. Stand up for the weak.
O Sovereign LORD! Extend PROTECTION over your children. Send the cloud by day and the pillar by might. Send your Angelic Hosts of Heaven to thwart and stop the hands of the accuser of the brethren and his demonic minions.
Send chariots of fire to the skies over Afghanistan and the Middle East. Show up in the skies and the streets of Afghanistan to Protect the Christians and Protect your Church. Protect our military. Protect every clandestine rescue operation by civilian efforts.
O Sovereign LORD! We pray for UNITY in the Church. We bind ourselves together on behalf of our brothers and sisters suffering persecution and death. Unite your Church! You are the focus. You are the main thing. You are the Good News! You are the truth, the way and the life. It’s all about you Jesus!
We call on the name of Jesus who is worthy of all our praise! We call on the name of Jesus who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or imagine. We call upon the name of Jesus who is the Lion that leads the tribe of Judah. We PLEAD THE BLOOD of Jesus over the earth!
O Sovereign LORD! Send REVIVAL to the earth. Not just in America but in the Middle East and the Far East. From North to South and East to West. Let revival break out. Let it start with me! Let it start with you! Holy Spirit! Ignite a fire within us that cannot be quenched by man.
O Sovereign LORD! We pray that your Name would be GLORIFIED in the earth. You are the maker of the earth. The creator of the universe. You stand at the threshold of Heaven and You listen for the sound of our praise. So we PRAISE the Name of the LORD! We lift up a holy shout without fear or doubt to the LORD God Almighty who reigns supreme over all the earth!
We declare Psalms 97 over God’s green earth!
“The LORD reigns! Let the earth rejoice! Let the multitude of isles be glad! Clouds and darkness surround Him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
“A fire goes before Him, And burns up His enemies round about. His lightnings light the world. The earth sees and trembles.
“The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD; At the presence of the LORD of the whole earth.
“The heavens declare His righteousness, And all the peoples see His GLORY.”
So be it! In Jesus mighty name!
