Afghan War Lord
Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has been a powerful and violent Afghan warlord. The Afghan government pardoned him in 2016 as part of a peace deal with the Hezb-i-Islami Taliban faction. He operated from Afghanistan's northeast mountains and Pakistan's tribal areas. He was one of the three main Taliban leaders of the Al-Qaeda allied insurgency (see Mullah Omar and Sirajuddin Haqqani). He was born in 1947 in the Kunduz Province of Afghanistan. He is Pushtun. He was Afghanistan's Prime Minister in the mid-90s. He led fighters against Soviet occupation in the 80s. He claims his fighters helped Bin Laden escape into Pakistan from the caves of Tora Bora. The US State Department identified him as a "Specially Designated Global Terrorist" in 2003.

• Holy Father in the name of Jesus I come before You. I freely admit that I am not worthy of Your mercy but I thank You for it. I was a sinner till I came to know You and now I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Thank You. I ask in the name of Jesus that the love that was shown to me be seen by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. He does not know You as I at one time did not know You. I ask that You would touch his heart. You are a GOD of redemption and I thank You. You took murderers like Moses, David and Paul and call them Your servants even friends who have Your heart. I pray that you would change Gulbuddin Hekmatyar as well. May he be changed to become a follower of Jesus Christ and a preacher of the gospel. Please forgive me, a Christian, when I see myself in the arrogant mindset of deserving grace more than others. Please have mercy upon me in Jesus' name. I love You. I honor You. I adore You, wonderful, merciful Savior. In the name of the one who became my sin that I might be Your righteousness, Jesus, Amen. — phishhu (Nov. 06, 2011 5:41 a.m.)
• Dear Jesus, As You encouraged us in Matt. 5:44, I want to pray for Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. You called us to bless our enemies and so the greatest blessing would be for Gulbuddin to know You, and so I pray, open his eyes to Your love for him. I pray that if it is Your will he might be led to the throne of grace by a dearly loved grandchild. I pray that he might be blessed in his family life and that the knowledge of Your goodness and grace will amaze him. In Your Name, Sweet Jesus, Who died for us all, amen — Renee (March 03, 2015 5:01 p.m.)
• Dear Lord, I speak Your Name JESUS into the heart and mind and soul of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. In Your Name I take captive every thought of his and make those thoughts obedient to the Word of God and to the Mind of Christ so that You can and will transform him by the renewing of his mind, establish homeostasis in his life and bless him with great success as he learns to turn his hands to only that which is wholesome and good, obedient to Your Will therefore pleasing in Your Sight. Then may he be prospered in every good way, a way that will Glorify Your Holy Name OH Lord. Amen — ginna (Jan. 13, 2019 6:07 a.m.)
