Sub-Saharan Africa

Friday, January 21, 2022

Islam has gained ground in sub-Saharan Africa through Muslim traders and missionaries who have, over the centuries, propagated their religion throughout most of the continent. Today several black African countries have a strong Islamic presence, and Islam continues to grow. Petrodollars pour into Africa from Arab nations to build mosques and gain converts.[1]

Yet, there is an encouraging harvest of souls coming to Christ from Islam in Africa. Many are taking Bible correspondence courses, tuning in to Christian radio, watching Christan TV, and attending revival meetings to receive healing and invoke God’s intervention in their affairs. Certainly, Muslims in Africa are coming to Christ in encouraging numbers.

Prayer

I bless you, O Lord, for your triumphant Church in sub-Saharan Africa. I praise you for the flames of revival spreading in many areas of the continent. I thank you for including Muslims in this revival. May the Holy Spirit sweep over thousands and millions of them and draw them to Jesus Christ, the only Savior and Lord.

I praise you for the thousands of missionaries going out of Africa to other parts of the world. I pray that many Muslim converts to Christ will also go out as missionaries to evangelize other Muslims in various countries. Call them, O Lord, empower them, and send them out.

Thank you for the hundreds of pastors, evangelists, and Bible teachers who have come to the Kingdom of God from Islam.

I pray for countries that have not yet experienced this revival. May your Word be proclaimed in those dark places. In the Savior’s name I pray, amen.

Promise

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6, NLT).
