Our prayers are requested for The Right Revd Dr Azad Marshall and for Christians in Afghanistan.
Azad Marshall spoke via video at our Diocesan Synod Holy Communion Service in June 2021. He is a Pakistani bishop, currently serving, since May 2021, as the Moderator Bishop of the Church of Pakistan.
Pakistan is number eight on the World Watch list whilst Afghanistan is number one. You can find prayers for Afghanistan on the Open Doors website at this link.
(Every year, Open Doors research teams create the World Watch List: a list of the countries where Christians face the most severe persecution, ranked from the most extreme.)
