Do we believe in miracles? Of course we do; that is why we pray! This week we pray for an outstanding miracle: we want to see Muslims come to Jesus, be filled with the Holy Spirit, get trained in the Word and go out as missionaries to nominal Christians—Americans, Europeans, Africans, Asians and so forth.
Does that mean Muslims who put their faith in Jesus Christ will evangelize Americans and others? Exactly. God is able to do far more abundantly than all we dare to ask or imagine through his mighty power at work within us (Ephesians 3:20). In a spiritual sense, we are claiming the promise to expand our territories and enlarge our borders (Exodus 34:24).
Lord God, you created the heavens and the earth. You alone are the Master over all the universe, and you alone rule the kingdoms of this world. We bring you our ambitious request, knowing very well that you can do great things we have never dreamed of.
We pray that you will transform Muslims into vessels of honor to serve the King of kings and Lord of lords. We want to see the day when tens of thousands of them become evangelists, pastors, missionaries and teachers of the Word of the Lord. Indeed, we cannot accomplish such a feat. But didn’t you turn four miserable, rejected, hated lepers into proclaimers of good news? Yes, you did.
Lord, we do believe. Help us overcome any unbelief in us, and increase our faith (Mark 9:24; Luke 17:5).
To you be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Pray to me, and I will answer you. I will tell you important secrets you have never heard before (Jeremiah 33:3, NCV).
 Read the story in 2 Kings 7:1-16.
