We are all watching with shock and deep concern about what is happening in Afghanistan.
With the rapid withdrawal of US troops, the Taliban has moved in far more quickly than our government expected, and now so many Afghan lives are at risk.
There is no question this whole withdrawal has been grossly mishandled, and for a rare moment in time people on both sides of the political aisle are in agreement on this.
I would ask that we all specifically remember to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in Afghanistan right now. A relief organization working in the region is warning of an increase in attacks on Christians across Afghanistan. They said, “Anyone identified as a Christian could be killed for their faith, and that they risk betrayal or falling victim to an honour killing by their own family members.”
This is cause for grave concern.
Let’s also be praying for our president and his advisors to make sound decisions at this crucial moment. Lives are at stake!
