Declarations to Pray for the Crisis in Afghanistan

by | Aug 17, 2021 | Culture

I heard the news of the Taliban taking over Afghanistan, and I was grieved. We are living out the very prophecy of the Bible with Christians being martyred for their faith. The Bible speaks of end-time persecution and wars. This is not a time for fear but a time for faithful prayers.

I cried out to the Lord and inquired of Him how I could make a difference. Lord, what can I do to help? I was prophetically speaking on a webinar to my inner circle mentees. I was telling them how prophecy is releasing prophetic events and that people’s individual prophetic words are coming forth. As I released this message, the Holy Spirit simultaneously downloaded revelation on how we should be praying for this situation.

I believe this is a season and call to intercession on a corporate level. Last week, I released prophetic words of a pending financial storm and a governmental shift. These words were strict calls to intercession, and now with the crisis in Haiti of natural disease, governmental shift and the increasing pandemic, I know it is a time to intercede for our world.

How do we effectively pray and declare what needs to happen? How do we keep our flesh out of our prayer time? How do we stand in agreement and pray God’s kingdom manifests on earth, revival comes forth and change manifests? Allow the Holy Spirit to lead your prayer time. In my book, Prophetic Spiritual Warfare, I teach how to partner with the Holy Spirit to conquer warfare. I’ve written over 50 declarations in the book to speak out against warfare. However, right now, I want to tap into the presence and power of the Holy Spirit once again for prayer points and declarations of how we should be praying for our world.

Pray these audibly and receive additional warfare declarations to pray for our government, finances and against the pandemic at Kathy DeGraw Ministries.

Jesus has given us authority. Let’s take our authority over the earth.

Pray for the Crisis in Afghanistan

I bind and restrict every demonic attack against women, children and the people of Afghanistan.

I speak and declare there will be peace and order in Afghanistan.

I call forth transformation and Saul-to-Paul conversations for the Taliban soldiers.

I decree and declare forth the collapse and fall of the Taliban army.

I annihilate the spirit of death and murder over Afghanistan. Father God, shelter and hide the underground church in Afghanistan.

— I speak and decree safety for the Christians facing persecution and death in Afghanistan. Give them strong faith, boldness, security and hope.

I eradicate every demonic assignment to steal, kill and destroy Christians doing the Lord’s work in Afghanistan.

I proclaim the underground church and Christians will be protected, and I confine and restrain demonic assignments from going forth against them.

I call forth wisdom for government officials. I declare they will bind their flesh and natural insights and do what is best for all people. Holy Spirit, send conviction to their minds and hearts and change them to desire to receive conviction, instruction and direction.

I declare that people will come forth and desire to follow the Lord and biblical principles.

I abolish every spirit of control, Jezebel, manipulation and witchcraft in the government and the Taliban army. I speak, decree and call forth their complete exposure and deliverance!

I annihilate every principality and demonic operation over our governmental system and the territory of Afghanistan.

I call forth Resurrection life and power to go forth into this situation and for divine heavenly host intervention!

I speak and decree no weapon formed against Christians, peacekeeping soldiers and the Afghanistan people will prosper.

I thank You, Father God, for you are the vindicator and judge. Expose the enemy and protect your people! I paralyze all demonic assignments against the godly and righteous.

I speak and decree and call forth every good thing and bind and restrict the demonic realm from activation, in the name of Jesus!

Pray for the Soldiers Who Have Fought to Keep the Peace

I call forth healing from trauma and every negative emotion soldiers who fought to keep peace in Afghanistan are now experiencing.

Father God, put a hedge of protection around the soldiers who are peacekeepers.

I restrict the enemy from wreaking havoc on soldiers’ emotions and using this event to affect them and their families negatively.

I pray for people in our governmental system who worked years to keep peace and now feel betrayed and angry. I ask, Father God, for comfort, peace and love in their hearts and minds.

Prayer: Father God, I lift our armed forces to you right now. I ask for love and understanding where there is brokenness and pain. In the name of Jesus, comfort and surround them. Where there is anger, betrayal and confusion, Holy Spirit, be their comforter and friend. Father, be with the families who lost their loved ones who were soldiers keeping peace in Afghanistan. Let them know their loss still helped people, and let them know it was not for nothing. Lord, I ask you to dispatch angels on assignment to encourage, surround and support all military families in Jesus’ name. {eoa}
