Terrorism “Spring Offensive” Ignites in Afghanistan

In light of recent events in Kabul & the Taliban prisoners who escaped Sunday in Pakistan, we are asking you to join us in stepping up heartfelt prayer for the region. If you don’t already know what’s going on, below is a summary with a news link, but we’ve also provided you with prayer points and scriptures to proclaim.

Lift up YOUR voice before the throne of grace. Remember, “If history belongs to the intercessor, then so does the future!” -Wayne Dillard

On Sunday April 15th, Kabul, Afghanistan was shaken by dramatic acts of terrorism that have been attributed to Taliban insurgents. The terrorists accessed high-rise construction sites and showered a multitude of grenades and bullets on U.S., British, German and Russian embassies as well as NATO headquarters and local airfields and police stations. An attempt was even made to assassinate one of Afghanistan’s two vice presidents.

All in all, the violence caused 15 police officers and nine civilians to be injured, and Afghan officials have stated that at least 36 of the insurgents were killed.

But why the attack on the foreign embassies? Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said, “These attacks are the beginning of the spring offensive and we had planned them for months. We are strong and we can attack anywhere we want.”

  • Psalm 2 “Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed…Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son.”
