Brothers and Sisters in the Book of Acts we read,
From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him – though he is not far from any one of us. Acts 17:26-37
God has put within man the desire to seek him. But because of the fall,that desire has become corrupted. Cultures that were meant to seek the one true God seek false gods. This is no less true of Muslims.
Ramadan is considered a holy month by Muslims and begins this Sunday evening. It’s a time when Muslims are seeking their god and are open to spiritual things. They understand they have sinned and need to be forgiven, however, seek to do it through works and not the redemption and grace that is found in Jesus. It’s also a time when Christians around the world are crying out for a harvest to come out of the Muslim nations. Many prayers for this to be a time when a course correction will take place and Muslims will find the true God. That they will come to know the truth of who Jesus Christ really is, feel the reality of his presence, welcome him into their hearts and follow him.
(Prayercast.com) God loves Muslims. He LOVES them! He loves them SO much that He came to the earth as a baby, lived a perfect life, gave His own life as the perfect sacrifice for their sins, and then raised Himself from the grave!
And He wants all Muslims “to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4)
Jesus said “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
Praise God, that is exactly what is happening today! More Muslims have turned to follow Jesus in the past 15 years than in the previous 1400 years combined!
But our hearts are still heavy because 1.8 billion Muslims are still living without a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
And so we PRAY!
Listen to a brother who came out of Islam. He prays a beautiful prayer for the harvest to be reaped among Muslims.
Pray Muslims would be delivered from the crushing burden of striving to earn God’s favor.
Let us cry out for a great harvest among Islamic believers that they will find Jesus, the Messiah.
Pray that Jesus would reveal Himself in visions, dreams, and the Injil (New Testament). For true repentance and realization their salvation depends on Christ alone.
Pray that Muslims would become aware of evil thoughts and desires within that cannot be avoided by fasting.
Let us pray for those deceived by the ideology of jihad to become true followers of Jesus Christ and used for Kingdom purposes.
