Pray against... 'Grasshopper Complex' - Friday March 11 2011







This week we pray against the 'Grasshopper Complex' - Friday March 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:
God promised to give Israel the land of Canaan.  But when Moses sent a group of leaders to spy out the land, most of them brought back a negative and discouraging report (Numbers 13:26-33).  They said the land devoured its inhabitants and that the people were giants.  Worst of all, the spies felt like grasshoppers compared to those giants!

Some Christians look at Islam's advances today and feel like they are grasshoppers nest to giants.  Even in the United States Islam is taught in some public schools as a "culture," but Christianity is not!   The Islamic population in Europe is growing fast while the original European stock is dangerously and precipitously shrinking!  Experts say that in 50 years Europe will be majority Muslim.

Promise:
He is not afraid of bad news.  His heart remains secure, full of confidence in the LORD (Psalm 112:7, GW).

Prayer:
Almighty God, if we believe Your Word and take our responsibility seriously, we won't see ourselves as "grasshoppers"; rather, we are more than conquerors.  Humanly  speaking, we are not up to the task of challenging the world of Islam to leave the darkness and come to the light of Christ.  But we are not to depend on human strength or wisdom.  Help us to have the kind of faith in You that David had.  May we see the giant as too big to miss!  Fill us with the power of Your Spirit.  Be our armor, our shield and our sword.

Help the church in Europe and America to see the influx of Islam as a God given opportunity to bring multitudes of Muslims to Christ the Savior.

Give the believers in my local church the vision to be effective messengers of the true God and to bring Muslims to Your Kingdom.  Heal us from thinking we will never make a difference.  Fire us with zeal and passion by Your word.  Help us to obey Your Great Commission to make disciples of every nation (Matthew 28:19).

Glory, power and honor be to You alone, Lord, King and Savior. Amen.
