Grace and Peace (in Afghanistan and Beyond)

May the grace and peace of God cover the people of Afghanistan today!

It saddens me to see that the country of Afghanistan has fallen captive to the Taliban. 

Many of the people, who live in the country of Afghanistan, are Christians, and follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior. My prayer is that the whole country will be saved and will be able to talk and share about Jesus openly with others around them without living in fear of the Taliban or being killed by the Taliban. 

~”The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” ~Psalm 28:7, NIV~ 

It is in these times that the people of Afghanistan need to stop and praise the Lord! As bad as this advice sounds, they need to praise the Lord for giving them the strength that they need to go on and to press on to their futures. The people of Afghanistan have a future in the Lord Jesus Christ and need to remember that it was Jesus, who died for them and for their sins. 

The people of Afghanistan need to call on Jesus, as their Protector. My prayer is that the blood of Jesus will cover them wherever they go, whether they choose to stay in Afghanistan or to flee the country with their family, their friends, and their loved ones. I bless the people of Afghanistan with the blood of Jesus. I bless Afghanistan, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

I pray that the people of Afghanistan, who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, will repent of their sins and ask Jesus to forgive them of their sins. I pray that they will see and know that only Jesus can save them and their country. Jesus is the God of miracles and He is God of all, including Afghanistan.  

I also pray for those who are in the Taliban, who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I pray for them and that they will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Only Jesus can transform and turn a wicked heart away from sin and from sinning and straight to Him. I pray that this group of people, who hate and kill Christians, will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. 

I pray that the people of Afghanistan will be drawn into a safe place, in the wings of Almighty God and that they will experience such a peace that they have not experienced before in their lives. May the grace and peace of God go with them, in Afghanistan and beyond. 

~”He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”~ Psalm 91:1, ESV~ 

~”I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” ~ John 16:33, ESV~ 

May the grace and peace of God go with all of Afghanistan and may the blood of Jesus be their portion. God bless Afghanistan!
