Call Afghanistan What It Is… Also Pray for Afghanistan

As many as 80,000 desperate people still need to be evacuated from behind enemy lines—thousands of U.S. citizens and tens of thousands of Afghans who risked their lives for years to help U.S. troops.

Today, as we write this, our hearts are heavy. The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan is producing untold human tragedies. Desperate scenes at the Kabul airport — and the violence erupting across Afghanistan that Western media does not see — portray an international tragedy of immense proportion.

And for some 10,000 to 12,000 Afghan Christians, whose numbers have grown as they’ve worshipped in small, underground groups, this is a life-and-death emergency. They are being specifically and openly targeted by the Taliban.

These troubling events are a call to prayer. Family Research Council has been tracking the situation in Afghanistan, and we ask you to join us as we intercede for our endangered sisters and brothers there. For more on what’s happening and how you can pray, please see the following resources:
