Pray for the Church to heed 'God's Call Regarding Muslims' - Friday March 18 2011






This week we pray for the Church to heed 'God's Call Regarding Muslims' - Friday March 18 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:
Before ascending to heaven, Jesus instructed His followers to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19).  The call had been issued.  The harvest is ready.  Some Muslims are even searching for the truth.  There is an air of expectation.

At the same time, I feel like the Lord is taking hold of the Church, shaking her and saying: Wake up, Church!  You have a mission to carry out among Muslims, and you seem to be asleep.  You need to rethink your responsibility toward Muslims.  You need to reconsider your prayer life and intercession for them.  I am ready to do something unheard of, but you have a role to play... wake up!

Promise:
Don't say you are too young, for you must go to everyone to whom I send you and say whatever I tell you.  Don't be afraid of the people, for I am with you and will protect you (Jeremiah 1:7-8, Sharif Bible).

Prayer:
Glorious Father, give the Church the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that she may know You better.  May the eyes of her heart be enlightened so that she may know the hope to which You have called her (Ephesians 1:17-18).

May the Church take to heart the responsibility You entrusted to her to go to the whole world and preach the Gospel to all people (Mark 16:15).  Give her love for Muslims.  Help her to know Your purpose and will for them - that You so loved them that You gave Your only Son to die for them.  You do not want them to perish without Christ.

May she hear Your voice to wake up and expect thrilling surprises from the hand of God (Isaiah 51:17). 

Help the Church to be willing to pay the price in prayer, fasting, giving and going!  The harvest is white and ready to be gathered in.

Blessed be Your glorious name from everlasting to everlasting,  O God, the only true God.  By Your Spirit I pray, in Jesus' name, amen.
