God’s Call Regarding Muslims

Friday, December 6, 2019

Before ascending to heaven, Jesus instructed his followers to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). The call has 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 your intercession for them. I am ready to do something unheard of, but you have a role to play… wake up!

Prayer

Glorious Father, give the Church the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that she may know you better. 1.18 NIV Ephesians 1.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 she 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 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 saying, “wake up, wake up… put on your strength… put on your splendid garments!” (Isaiah 52:1).

Help the Church 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 holy name from everlasting to everlasting, O God, the only true God. By your Spirit I pray, in Jesus’ name, amen.

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, SAB).

In the Name of Jesus

Friday, November 29, 2019

Prayer in the name of Jesus is not a formula for a charm or an incantation to help us in a magical way. In the legal world, when someone assigns you power of attorney, you have the authority to act on behalf of that person and in his place. You can sell and buy real estate, possessions, or whatever the document states.

Praying in the name of Jesus means:

  • I make my request to God for the sake of Jesus. I deserve nothing. I have no rights at the throne of God, so I am asking on the merits of Christ. He is my Maker and Redeemer. God answers, in honor of Christ (John 14:13-14; 15:16; 16:23-24; Acts 16:18; 1 Corinthians 1:2).
  • I approach God in the authority of Jesus, my Lord and Savior (Acts 3:6; 16:18; 1 Corinthians 1:2).
  • I ask in line with his will (1 John 5:14).

Prayer

Lord Jesus, our Master and Savior, we bless you. Your name expresses your divine nature and glory, your sacrificial love, your compassionate attitude toward us, and your saving power. Thank you.

I pray for Muslim people all over the world. Open their spiritual eyes to acknowledge the greatest name, the name above all others. Open their hearts to accept you and surrender their lives to you. Set them free from old beliefs, superstitious practices, and slavery to a system that has, for centuries, abused them. Help them realize that salvation is found in no one other than you (Acts 4:12).

I pray for the churches among Muslims to be full of the Holy Spirit and strongly founded on the Word of God. Give them a vision to bring the nations to Jesus Christ.

You are worthy to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise (Revelation 5:12). Amen.

Promise

The smell of your perfume is sweet, your name is like fragrant perfume…. In his name, the nations will put their hope (Song of Solomon 1:3; Matthew 12:21, SAB).
