Shaking In The Muslim World

Friday, January 1, 2016

For the past 14 centuries, Islam has resisted Christ. It has proclaimed Muhammad the greatest and last of all prophets, the Quran the final revelation from God to man, and the Sharia the best law for humans.

During all that time, it seemed that the Church was at a loss to know what to do with and for Islam.

However, concerted prayers for Muslims have arisen in recent decades. Many God-fearing, Christ-worshipping brothers and sisters around the world are interceding for Muslims. We believe God is answering our prayers, and a great shaking is about to take place. We believe that Muslims will run to Christ in unprecedented numbers. He is the only Lord and Savior. He alone is the one true refuge.


Almighty God, our compassionate and merciful Father, with a sense of awe and responsibility we come to you to pray for the vast Muslim world. For too long, Muslims have been under a severe and ruthless taskmaster.

In the past, you caused the earth and mountains to tremble and quake (Judges 5: 4-5; Psalm 114:7; Isaiah 64: 1; Micah 1:3-4). We are asking for a mighty display of your power and majesty in a spiritual sense. We pray that you will send a great awakening to Muslim nations and societies. May you come down and shake the very foundations of Islam. Let your Holy Spirit convict many Muslims and bring them to Jesus.

Lord, prepare the Church for that great stirring. Give your people the wisdom to know what to do when millions of Muslims move toward the entrance gates of the Kingdom!

In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.


“The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14).

“I will shake all the nations, they will bring their treasures, and I will fill this house with glory’ (Haggai 2:7, SAB).

God’s Incarnation

Friday, December 25, 2015

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!


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 slave, 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.


The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, 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).

Finish Well

Friday, December 18, 2015

It is the end of the year. What have we done with the fleeting time? What does the coming year hold for us? How will it unfold? Some of us will reach the end of our pilgrimage on earth and will be called home. Others, however, will still have duties and responsibilities ahead of them.

Whether we finish sooner or later, we always need God’s grace to do well and end our journey worshiping at the throne of Christ.


Glory and honor be to you, Almighty God, my Father! Blessed be your holy name. You have called me to follow Jesus as my Lord and Savior. What joy! What grace! What mercy! Thank you.

When I finish my pilgrimage here, and the time comes for me to sign off and go to my eternal rest, I have only one more request: for the many people who still do not know you, please, Lord, bring them by the millions into your Kingdom. By the power of the cross, release those who are oppressed by sin (Luke 4:18), rescue those who are perishing, bring home those who are lost and wandering (Proverbs 24: 11; Psalm 82:4). Give them spiritual eyes to see Jesus in his love and compassion. Help them to trust Christ, the Lord.

Equip your Church and empower her to accomplish your redemptive plan and purpose for all people, including Muslims.

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13, NIV).



As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with your likeness when I awake… God will wipe away every tear from their eyes (Psalm 17:15; Revelation 7:17, Sharif Bible).

Came to Christ this Year

Friday, December 11, 2015

During this year, if you have prayed for Muslims to come to Jesus, be assured that God answers prayer. Perhaps you will not know who came to Christ or how it happened, but what a surprise there will be for you in eternity! You will meet people that you prayed for without knowing them!

We rejoice in the harvest of those who enter the Kingdom of God. Every year untold numbers of Muslims put their faith in Christ and receive forgiveness of their sin by his grace. They become part of the Church of the living God and start walking in the light.


God, our Savior, how we magnify and rejoice in you! We delight in your mighty power to save. We bless and praise you for those precious souls you have rescued from the grip of Satan. They are washed in the blood of the Lamb. Hallelujah! You have accepted them in Christ.

Now they have fellowship with the Father and with the Son. Now, they call you "Father"! Now, they approach your throne of grace with faith, love and joy. We adore you for that.

And we also pray for them. May you continue to work in their life, as you give them victory and cleanse their conscience from dead works in order to serve you, the true and living God.

You are able to keep them from falling and to present them before your glorious presence without fault and with great joy. You are the only God our Savior. To you be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen (Jude 1:24-25).


I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand  (John 10: 28-29, NIV).
