'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.
Under the power of the Spirit of God, the prophet Ezekiel was carried in a vision to a valley full of dead, dry bones (Ezekiel 37). Many of us who work with Muslims see the Muslim world as a valley of dry bones. No life. No breath. No motion. No joy. Only death. Yet, we are praying, prophesying and believing that the Spirit of the Lord will come upon those dead bones and they will become a mighty army of Bible-believing, God-worshipping, Christ-glorifying, Spirit-filled people!
Come from the four winds, spirit, and breathe on these corpses that they will live... the spirit came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an extremely great army (Ezekiel 37:9-10, GW)
O Sovereign King of heaven and earth and all the universe, Almighty God, the God of miracles and wonders, I come to You because YOu are also my heavenly Father!
I believe it is time for Muslims to experience a breath of life from You at a magnitude never known before in the history of humankind. We have around us the skeletons and remains of a vast number of people who are spiritually dead - they have long been slain by the enemy of our souls.
O Spirit of the living God, breathe upon the Islamic valley of dry bones and grant them life in Jesus Christ the Lord. Give them spiritual flesh and nerves to become children of the living God. Give them spiritual backbones to stand firm in the their faith.
Send Your life to a people that some Christians have written off as impossible to bring into the Kingdom of God. Defend Your honor, and prove that such voices of despair are wrong!
O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! The Lord God says to these bones: I am going to put breath into you, and you will live (Ezekiel 37:4-5)
Lord God, You're able to accomplish far more then we ask or imagine, according to Your power at work in us. Glory be to You in the Church, and in Jesus Christ in all ages forever and ever. Amen (Ephesians 3:20-21)
