AFGHANISTAN: Front-Line Worker Requests Prayer for Christians and Taliban

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in 2021, life for Christians is difficult. Most Afghan Christians fled, but some remained. “It is very challenging for normal Afghan people and very, very hard for Christians,” a front-line worker shared.

“Persecution has escalated from the government, local religious authorities, family, and community, and it is still escalating.” Remaining Christians struggle with isolation, but some cautiously reach out. “Our Afghan brothers and sisters feel pressure, like sheep among wolves, but the desperation there is leading to opportunities for them to share ‘God stories’ that can lead to conversations about Christ.

Pray for the Taliban,” the front-line worker added. “They are fighters, not governors. Pray that they will lead by peace, do what’s good for the country and that they will come to Christ.”
