Praying for Afghanistan

“Prepare plans by consultation, And make war by wise guidance.”
-Proverbs 20:18

You formed the planets and stars, separated the land from the waters, and fashioned man with Your hands. You laid the foundations of the world in Your wisdom, and in Your wisdom You sent Jesus to reconcile men back to Yourself. All wisdom and power belong to You!

Lord, we ask that You would give the leaders of Afghanistan divine wisdom for victory in this conflict. Show them the political routes to lasting peace, and give them military strategies that will end the fighting quickly with few casualties. Release peace to the land of Afghanistan through Your wisdom that is “pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits…”

Thank You God that no conflict is too complex for You to solve, no army too mighty for You to conquer. Bring down the forces of darkness that cause contention with the power of Your hand. Victory belongs to our God!
