Desperation grows in Afghanistan. Earlier this week, Taliban leaders announced girls older than 12 could no longer attend school, and international media is off the air.

The Taliban is back to its old ways, including persecution. “The situation here in Afghanistan for the Christians is not good,” says an Afghan Christian named Javid*.

“Believers are in grave danger. They are hunting the preachers and ministers door to door.”

MNN’s sister ministry Prayercast features Afghan believers like Javid on its new podcast called OneVoice. Each week, Afghans share firsthand stories of what’s happening around them.

  • Ask the Lord to protect and provide for His followers in Afghanistan.
  • Pray Afghan believers use discernment in sharing their faith with neighbors. There is great risk in exposing one’s identity as a Christian.
  • Pray more Afghans will turn to Christ as they discover His love and saving truth.
