Islam claims that it is the final and ultimate revelation from God to man. It maintains that the Quran came to abrogate and annul all divine books that preceded it. Muslims believe that Muhammad was the last messenger sent from God.
Islam sees the Christian Church as an affront to its system and Christian world missions as an outrageous, audacious attack against the best of all religions. Simply, Muslims view Christian evangelization as a fanatic plot against the progress of Islam to convert the world to the religion of Muhammad.
Almighty God, you love Muslims and care for them. That is why I pray for the Islamic system to open up to accept the claims of Christ, the hope of man and the only Savior and Lord. In the name of Jesus, I bind satanic powers that hold sway over this system and hinder its people from accepting Christ as the only Redeemer from sin.
I pray for the guardians of the Islamic system and for its perpetuators—government and private agencies in charge of supporting and promoting religion, Islamic associations, missions agencies, religious endowments, and various hierarchies. May many representatives of these agencies believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and take him as their refuge and shelter.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, NIV).
