Praying for Afghanistan


These days call upon us to pray for our Afghan sisters and brothers are treated.  The Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation Rome group shared the following information.  Let us do all we can to help.

During these days we have heard and seen how our afghan sisters and brothers are suffering and trying to escape from their country after the Taliban took power. Our prayer and thoughts are with Afghanistan. Sr. Ann Scholz from the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in the United States, shared with us this initiative of the The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS)who have prepared a resource to aid our efforts to support the Afghan people, especially women and girls, in their time of need. They are inviting people of faith and good will to join them in a “Sacred Silence for Afghanistan”. The website allows one to register for an Interfaith Prayer Vigil on August 31; an Interfaith Prayer Toolkit; the chance to Contribute a Prayer of your own, as well as a number of ways to Help Our Afghan Allies by volunteering, donating, advocating, teaching, and learning.
