Prayer about terrorist attacks around Kabul airport
Lord God, we grieve the terrorist attacks around Kabul’s airport! We continue to be disgusted by the Islamic State’s violence! Lord, guard the hearts and minds of those who will be receiving the bad news about their loved ones being killed in such a way. May they be surrounded by help and support when they hear the heartbreaking news. Gird their hearts and souls. We pray this for the families and dear friends of the 60 Afghans and 12 US service members who were murdered through these attacks. We pray for the 15 US service members who were injured. Please help them get to safe and excellent medical care as quickly as possible. May they recover from these injuries as well as possible. While we do not know numbers, there are bound to be dozens of Afghan injuries as well. May the injured receive priority evacuation so they can get to safety and good care as well. Lord God, there are still so many people awaiting evacuation--with their fear now exponentially multiplied. We are frustrated by what is happening in Afghanistan. We lay our agony before you and ask: help decision-makers be wise, considerate, humble and effective. May you somehow glorify yourself amid this mess. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen. PC: Victor J.
