Muslim Women

Friday, December 31, 2021

The Quran states that God made men superior to women and gave them authority over them.

There are at least 600 million female Muslims in the world. A strong force of humanity! While some are subdued, uneducated, house-bound and socially oppressed, others are highly educated and have broken outside the norms to become powerful socially and politically. Some are poor, others are affluent. Like all other humans, Muslim women have hurts, fears and worries. They are concerned about their children and families. They need love, assurance and security.

I believe that if we want to bring many Muslims to Christ, we have to intercede on behalf of Muslim women.

Prayer

Lord God our Maker, how great you are! I praise you! You made us man and woman in your image to express your glory and creativity. You formed us in an amazing and wonderful way! Your workmanship is marvelous. I worship you and give you glory and honor.

I intercede on behalf of Muslim women. They need to know you,to experience your love and assurance. You have reserved a great place for them in your divine plans. Arise, O God, and have compassion on Muslim women. Grant them your favor through Christ’s grace. Help them to see how Jesus honored and blessed women and how he lifted their heads and valued them dearly. Help Muslim women to see that Jesus died for them to give them life, hope and joy.

May they be touched by Christ’s love and tenderness. He is the only One who can forgive their sins, meet their needs, heal their hurts, soothe their fears and calm their anxieties.

Make many of them into godly women who will use their great abilities and sensitivity to raise godly families and bless their communities with Christian values.

In the precious name of your Son I pray. Amen.

Promise

God is a shield for all who take refuge in him… Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Psalm 18:30; Matthew 11:28-29, NIV).

God’s Incarnation

Friday, December 24, 2021

One of the major cornerstones of biblical Christianity is the doctrine of the incarnation; that is, God became man. This is the miracle of miracles, the most majestic of all events! Yet Muslims absolutely reject it. They totally oppose the doctrine of the deity of Jesus Christ.

When Christians declare that Christ is God, Muslims misunderstand it to mean that Christians worship more than one God. To them, Jesus was only human and was a prophet like all other prophets.

Further, when followers of Christ say that Jesus is the Son of God, Muslims misunderstand that to mean that God, like humans, had relations with a woman and that Jesus is their son!

Prayer

Amazing love! How can it be, that the majestic God, Maker of heavens and earth and King of all the universe, should come in the form of a man, a servant, to be “Immanuel—God with us” to redeem us!

Father in heaven, grant Muslims a special measure of your grace to accept the wonderful truth that Jesus Christ is God become man. Help them realize that this does not degrade or humiliate you; rather, this is the pinnacle of majesty. It is ultimate love and compassion. It is utmost sacrifice.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God and Lord of all, you are rich, but you became poor for our sake. May this truth shine forth into the souls of many Muslims this week. May they embrace you in their hearts with joy and gladness. May the Child who was born in a manger, the Lion of Judah, be crowned King and Master over the House of Islam! In his precious name I pray. Amen.

Promise

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth…. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 1:14; 3:16, NIV).
