Please pray for Saumu. She is a young lady studying nursing and is from our area. She accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior while at secondary school, but has been under many physical and spiritual attacks in nursing school. She told one of the pastors from that area, “I have decided to live as a Muslim again, although I have not denied Christ yet, for I know that He saved me.” Her family is pressuring her to return to the Muslim faith and she is very confused, as she knows the TRUTH of Jesus, yet is conflicted with what her family is telling her about the Bible and Christians. Please pray for Saumu, and for her to seek Jesus fully in this time of uncertainty and confusion in her life and that her heart would truly surrender to Him.
Ramadan Day 30: If the moon is seen tonight, Eid will be tomorrow. Eid is the feast of fast-breaking- the celebration of the end of Ramadan. People will wake up early, dress in their finest, and gather with many others outdoors at a stadium or at a mosque. They’ll come home to enjoy special foods. They’ll say Islam is a religion of peace. “They say, ‘Peace, peace’, but there is no peace” says the Lord (Jer. 6:14). There is no peace with God except through Jesus Christ. Ask God to remove the veil that covers Muslims’ hearts that they may know the true way to peace with God.
Ramadan Day 19: Pray for Muslim background believers to “be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what they have heard they will entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (from 2 Tim. 2:2)
Ramadan Day 8: The second pillar of Islam is salat-ritual prayers done five times a day. As Muslims pray, ask God to have mercy on them, and to show them the Way, the Truth, and the Life. “I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give Muslims spiritual wisdom and revelation in their growing knowledge of Him-may the eyes of their heart be enlightened- so that they may know what is the hope of His calling, what is the wealth of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the incomparable greatness of His power toward us who believe.” (adapted from Eph 1:17-19)
