Missionaries to Nominal Christians

Friday, November 15, 2019

Do we believe in miracles? Of course we do. That’s why we pray! This week we are praying for a great 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 have 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). Yes, we claim God’s promise to expand our territories and enlarge our borders (Exodus 34:24) in a spiritual sense.

Prayer

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. In prayer, we bring you our ambitious request, knowing 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 Muslim converts 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.[1]

Lord, we do believe. Help us overcome any unbelief or doubts, and increase our faith (Mark 9:24; Luke 17:5).

To you be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Promise

Pray to me, and I will answer you. I will tell you important secrets you have never heard before (Jeremiah 33:3, NCV).
