Praying about... 'The Muslims Belief in Muhammad' - Friday Feb. 11 2011



This week we pray about 'The Muslims Belief in Muhammad' - Friday Feb. 11 2011

Contents on this Blog are from 
'Praying for Muslims: A guide for effective Intercession 2011'

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.   


Info:
During this season Muslims around the world celebrate Muhammad's birthday.  Muhammad was born in AD 570 in Mecca, in what is now Saudi Arabia, and died in AD 632.  His tomb is in the city of Medina, north of Mecca.

At age 40, Muhammad reportedly started receiving messages from God.  At the beginning, Muhammad suffered persecution from his own tribe.  But when he gained followers and Islam became stronger, he waged wars to subjugate people to his religion.

Muslims believe that Muhammad is the last and most important of all prophets sent from God, that he brought the final religion, Islam, and the final revelation from God to man, the Qur'an.

Promise:
Jesus answered "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6, NIV)

Prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the Almighty One and the Ruler over the kings of the earth.  You are enthroned above the angels and all the universe.  I pray that You manifest Your glory to many Muslims this week.  Show them Your mighty power.  Come to rescue them!  Deliver them, O merciful Lord, from Satan's tyranny.  Help them to pledge their loyalty and allegiance to You, the only true Savior.  Make Your face shine upon them.  May they set their fervent affections on the One who died for their sins and rose to give them life.  I pray in a special way for the Muslims I know - friends, neighbors, colleagues.  In the name of Jesus, break the power of the enemy in their lives.  Transfer them from darkness into the light of the Gospel.

Fill many homes with the joy, singing and celebration of lives transformed by the power of the cross of Cavalry. Keep believers faithful and true to You to the end.
