'Praying for Muslims: A guide for effective Intercession 2010'
I will be trying to post from this book every week....
Please join in each FRIDAY in INTERCEDING and FASTING(one meal) for Muslims and those on the FRONT LINES reaching out to Muslims.
God sometimes speaks to us in dreams and visions. In the Bible we read about people who received directions, warning, blessing and encouragement through dreams and visions. Jacob, Pharaoh, Solomon, Daniel, Joseph the Carpenter, the three Wise Man, and Pilate's wife are among many who were given dreams and visions to comfort, encourage, protect and guide them. The Lord says "I reveal myself... in visions, I speak... in dreams" (Numbers 12:6, NIV). A vision or a dream that comes truly from the Lord and is intended for guidance must be in accordance with God's Word. There should be no contradiction.
Because Muslims often take dreams very seriously, many who have received a dream or a vision about Jesus have found peace with God through Christ as a result.
I reveal myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not see me (Isaiah 65:1, NIV).
O Ancient of Days sitting upon the throne, You are unsurpassed in majesty, glory and holiness. Yet You stoop down to touch us, to guide and comfort us. I pray that this week You will reveal Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to many Muslims and their leaders through dreams and visions. Show them mercy and bless them. Make Your face shine with favor upon them. When they are asleep, let their hearts be awake to receive a glimpse of the Lamb that was slain and a word from Him. Grant them spiritual encounters with You that will last for eternity.
I pray that they will put their faith in Christ and be saved by His atoning power. May they be impacted by such revelations to change their lives and follow the Shepherd of their souls.
May their experience with Jesus during their sleeping hours continue in their waking hours to grow into a holy walk with Him (Job 33:15-18).
Help them to delight in Your Word, to build their life in Christ upon it and to meditate on it day and night.
