The Persecuted Church

While Afghanistan has a population of over 36 million, only a few hundred people are followers of Jesus and are often isolated and face extreme persecution. New converts to Christianity can be disowned or even killed by their family to save the “honor” of the group, or committed to psychiatric hospitals, as leaving Islam is a sign of insanity. Pray for these dear souls to find daily strength and joy in the Lord and love for their oppressors, so that many will wonder about their faith and turn to Jesus for salvation.


Jeremiah shares that their Days of Prayer are a highlight for him as they fast and pray from 8 am to 5 pm. It showed him the need to be still and taste and see that the Lord is good. They prayed for the ministry, grew in knowing more of the Father and reflected and asked God to grow them. He asks prayer to have confidence through Christ and be open to many things this country and its people have to offer. Pray specifically that God will develop the relationships they make through these endeavors, and for the 13 first year students they met with.
