“Afghanistan Veteran Urges Prayer For The Country In Chaos”

🇺🇸Edward Graham during one of six deployments🇺🇸

As heartbreaking as it is for anyone to watch the chaos unfolding in Afghanistan right now, it’s all the more painful for those who served and sacrificed in the country…

“To watch this hurts,” admitted Edward Graham, a 16-year Army veteran and Billy Graham’s grandson. “I spent years there and lost many friends. There’s many Afghan people that I love…”

When the United States military invaded Afghanistan in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Graham was training at West Point. After graduating in 2003, the former special operations officer spent six of eight combat deployments there…

So even though Graham left the military to work with Samaritan’s Purse, he’s well aware of the situation in Afghanistan—where taliban fighters quickly regained control after the withdrawal of U.S. forces…

“I watched the taliban up close, [and] they are the very definition of evil,” he attested. “The Afghan people are trying to flee that. They’re trying to get away. They know the torture that’s coming…”

Very few people in the country are safe right now!!!

American allies are a target. Women who went to work or school are considered a threat. Children are at risk. And Christians—who already had to practice their faith in secret—now face even greater Persecution!!!

“If anyone knows they are Christians, they will be marked, hunted and killed,” said Graham, who met members of the underground church during his time in Afghanistan. “The taliban has no acceptance for any faith outside of their militant form of islam…”

Knowing just how dire the situation is in this country, the former Army ranger is Praying for a miracle. And he’s urging Christians not to “pass by” the Afghan people, following the example of the Samaritan man from ~JESUS’~ parables…

“And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise…”

{Luke‬ ‭10:25-37‬ ‭KJV‬‬}

“He was a Samaritan, and [the stranger] was a Jew. These are Afghans, and we’re Christians. We may not see eye to eye in our faith, but these are people that are going to be Persecuted because they didn’t support the taliban. They didn’t support evil, and evil is going to try to stomp them out…”

So even if you haven’t met any Afghan people like Graham has, every person you see in the news—desperately trying to escape this country in chaos—is an object of ~GOD’s~ unimaginable love…

“~JESUS~ loves them, He died for them. ~GOD~ sent His one and only begotten Son that they’d have eternal life,” Graham said. “That’s true in this country, that’s true in Afghanistan, and that’s true around the world…”

How can we Pray for Afghanistan???

  • Pray for the safety and salvation of the Afghan people…
  • Pray for Persecuted-Christians in Afghanistan and around the world…
  • Pray for a peaceful pathway that would allow people to escape…
  • Pray for countries accepting and resettling refugees…
  • Pray for the fall of the taliban and other terrorist groups…
  • Pray for peace in Afghanistan that man could never bring about…

“My hope has never been in man. It’s in ~JESUS~ Christ, my Lord and Savior, alone…”
