The book of Daniel tells the story of a group of young men who were plucked from their homes and forced to live among people who opposed their beliefs. But in the second chapter, Daniel prays these words:
“Praise be to the name of God forever and ever. Wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons, he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him” (Daniel 2:20-22).
Today is the final day of our week of prayer for Muslims, and we’re going to end by praying for the political systems of the Muslim nations in Eurasia. Many of the nations in Eurasia are openly hostile to the gospel.
But God is sovereign over kings and kingdoms.
- Pray for God to give our workers favor with the governments where they’re serving. Often their continued presence in that country, along with many facets of their work there, depend on the goodwill of the government, so pray that they’ll have it.
- Pray for God to move on the hearts of wicked government officials and transform them with the power of the gospel.
- Pray for God to remove corrupt government systems and replace them with just leaders.
Thanks again for praying with us this week. We are so glad you’re a part of this community!
