Dear Lord, I come to ask for your blessings on Afghanistan and Haiti. I pray that you will protect these countries from harm, bring peace and stability to their people and grant them the resources they need to rebuild. I also ask that you would pour out your love and mercy on their people and give them hope during this time of crisis. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Background on Prayer for Afghanistan and Haiti
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the largest U.S. humanitarian assistance agency, providing assistance in more than 150 countries worldwide. USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) leads the development and implementation of U.S. government-wide support for international disaster relief and reconstruction through its four pillars: humanitarian assistance, debt relief, technical assistance, and education and training.
On September 12, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Haiti Reconstruction Support Act of 2010 (H.R. 4590), authorizing $5.4 billion in emergency funding to help Haiti recover from the devastating earthquake that struck on January 12, 2010. The act provides support for long-term development projects as well as emergency response and reconstruction activities in the country.
In March 2011, OFDA released a report on “Prayer For Afghanistan And Haiti.” The report examines how people around the world are responding to natural disasters in Haiti and Afghanistan and looks at how prayer is impacting those affected by both events. The report also offers ways for Americans to pray for those affected by both disasters.
Since the devastating earthquake struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, people from all over the world have come together
The Purpose of Prayer
Prayer, whether spoken or silent, has a purpose in our lives. It is one of the most powerful tools we have to connect with God and change our perspective on situations.
Prayer can be used to ask for blessings on ourselves and others, as well as to request guidance in times of need. Prayer can also be used to reflect on and appreciate the good in life, and to petition for change when things are going wrong.
When we pray, we open up our hearts and allow God to speak directly to us. The Holy Spirit will help us understand what we should say, and He will provide comfort and strength when we need it.
Whether you are praying for a specific person or situation, or simply seeking guidance from God, prayer is an important part of every day life. We hope you will take the time to pray for those affected by the earthquake in Afghanistan and the hurricane in Haiti.
How to Pray for Afghanistan and Haiti
Prayer is an important part of any spiritual practice and can be a powerful tool in helping to achieve positive change. Whether you’re praying for those affected by the earthquake in Haiti or the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan, there are many ways to connect with and support those in need.
When praying for someone, it’s important to remember that God is always listening. Begin by expressing your feelings and concerns for the people and communities you’re asking for help with. Then, focus on sending your love and support to them in prayer. Ask for divine guidance and protection as you continue to pray for their safety and well-being.
If you’re feeling particularly inspired, try praying for specific individuals or groups. It can be helpful to have a specific target in mind, or to focus on expressing gratitude for what they represent – whether it’s Hope, Compassion, Mercy or Strength. Whatever your personal prayer strategy may be, make sure that you keep giving thanks throughout the process!
