Group calls for prayers for Christians in Afghanistan

0 243

The Samaritan’s Purse has called for prayers for the people of Afghanistan, especially Christians in the country, who the Chief Executive Officer of the group, Franklin Graham said they are in desperate and life or death situation.

Graham solicited that Christians around the world should join him in a day of prayer for the people as large crowds swarm around Kabul airport desperate for an evacuation flight.

He said it would take a “miracle from the hand of God” to get everyone out safely.

“Thousands of people who know they will be targeted by the Taliban are trying to get out of the country and can’t, with the Taliban blocking access to the airport and other exit routes,” he said.

“This is a life or death situation for Christians and other religious minorities, for Afghans who worked with or for America, and for Americans who are left in Afghanistan.

“The Islamic extremists who have taken Afghanistan by force have a history of brutality, including beheadings and public executions. We know what they are capable of. There is no hope for these people to get out safely—apart from a miracle from the hand of God—and that’s what we need to pray for.”

Last week, Graham hit out at Biden’s handling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the “little thought” given to rescuing the tens of thousands of Afghans who worked for America during its 20-year war on terror in the country.

“What’s unfolding in Afghanistan is tragic,” he said.

“Today, President Biden tried to defend his Afghanistan policy, but there is no way to defend this catastrophe. The more than $2 trillion spent; the 2,448 American lives lost; the 20,000+ American military wounded; and the promises made by both Democrat and Republican administrations that we would stay the course until they had freedom and democracy—all for nothing. The Taliban who took over the country are Islamic extremists who have no mercy and no respect for human life.

“This ill-thought-out decision of the Biden/Harris administration means a death sentence for many freedom-loving Afghans.”

He added, “The blood of this nation will be on the hands of the Biden/Harris administration.”
