I pray for those who were born and raised under the bondage of Islam. They want to love you, Father, but
they know you and worship you only as a false god named Allah and are bound by so many religious do' and
don'ts that they cannot get past the sin consciousness and guilt that comes when all one has is Religion rather
than a relationship with you. Yet, you are their Father and they are your children. That makes us brothers and
Help me, Father, for part of me really struggles with that truth.
Just as I was born in America and raised a Christian, millions have been born in Islamic nations and know
no other way. They are in bondage, Father. They are as much slaves as the Children of Israel were slaves.
Your children – our brothers and sisters – are in bondage. Set them free, Oh, God! Send your Deliverer!
Jesus is the answer to every problem known to mankind.
We wish them Jesus!
Lord, we pray for a revival among the Muslims of the Middle East. I've heard reports of many, many
Muslims becoming Christians as a result of actual visions of the risen Christ. One man testified about a
drop of oil hitting the ground before him as he prayed in a mosque. He touched it and it smelled like roses.
That caused him to think about Jesus whom he had heard was referred to as "the rose of Sharon." While
Christians sit in pews and spend fortunes on church buildings, we could be more effectively use that money
to increase our outreach to Muslim countries...but we don't. You've sent Islamic people to America to start
businesses and attend our colleges and we STILL fail to reach them for fear of hate crimes, being labeled
'intolerant' or our own complacency.
Do we REALLY care?
God, help us to care MORE!
Father, I pray that the hearts of those who are in bondage to Islam would be broken for the truth. I pray
that God-loving Muslims would rise up in unity against the Jihads and the teachers whose hearts are filled
with hatred toward Israel, America and her allies. I pray that you would remove the scales from their eyes,
oh, God, and show them how weak and impotent Allah is while the God of the Christian nations leads
them to not only defeat Iraqi and Afghanistan insurgents, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda but to follow this
victory by pouring resources into their restoration, turning the other cheek to those who have killed so
many of our own sons and fathers, and moving more and more of these enemies to want to know why
we would do this.
While many Americans cry "It's not fair," I'm reminded that nether was the Crucifixion of our Christ fair
to pay MY debt of sin.
Lord, in accordance with your teachings, we bless those who practice Islam around the globe. May they
not only have divine, miraculous encounters with Jesus Himself, but I pray for their Divine Appointments
with those of us who love Jesus and are willing to release His love into the lives of Muslims that we meet.
Release those Christian harvesters, oh, Lord of the harvest!
May I be one of them!
Give us the grace we need to love, pray for and forgive those who have meant us harm and to bear in mind
that not ALL Muslims ever meant us harm. Most were merely trying to survive their tyrannical dictator and
care for their families, just like us. Awaken us to the fact that, every day, multitudes within these Muslim
nations are seeking and secretly serving Jesus.
We pray for their safety and for the fruit of their ministries. How can we help?
Though some men trust in horses, others in chariots and others in sophisticated weaponry, we will trust in
the Name of our God, Jesus.
Thank you in advance for what you are going to do.
(Can YOU say 'Amen'?)
