Last year we shared with you that The Voice of the Martyrs has developed a mobile phone app designed to help us remember to pray for the persecuted church every single day of the year.
I have a challenge for you: why not make a New Year’s Resolution to pray every day for the nation that we highlight in our mobile app? I think it’s a great idea and easy to do.
Today the prayer request is for Afghanistan. Here’s what we share in the app about Afghanistan and how you can pray.
“Life expectancy is 44 years. Pray that all Afghans will have an opportunity to hear the gospel.”
Did you know that life expectancy was so low in Afghanistan? I have to admit that I didn’t, but now that I know, the urgency to pray for those in Afghanistan is greater.
If you’re using the app, after you pray, all you do is hit the button in the app that says “I Prayed”. As of the time of this writing, 292 people have prayed for Afghanistan and her people.
After you hit the "I Prayed" button you'll then see the “Share” button and be given the opportunity to post to Facebook, Twitter or email. Imagine how magnificent it would be to see 2000 people praying for a nation every day, and not just 292. It really is amazing how little we can do to make a big difference.
Now it’s time to download the app to your phone.
