Praying for the Pashtun of Northern Afghanistan

  • The Pashtun live primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan and consist of about sixty tribes, each with its own territory. Many of the Pashtun are extremely poor and live in unsanitary conditions caused mainly by poor water supply. There are over 12 million Pashtun people. Pray for the Pashtun children who grow up in fear and hatred of outsiders.
  • Ask God to encourage and protect the small number of Pashtun believers. 
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to soften their hearts towards Christians so that they will be receptive to the Gospel. 
  • Ask the Lord to raise up strong local churches among the Pashtun.
