We’re so glad that you’ve joined us as we intentionally pray for Muslims, during their month of Ramadan. Today is our third focus, and we’ll be praying against the paralyzing fear many Muslims experience.
Shared from prayercast.com:
“Muslims attempt to please God – as they understand Him from the Quran – largely by performing prescribed religious duties. In public, Muslims fear what others think of them. They dare not do anything to bring shame on their family. Beatings, shunning, and even death can be the result. Women are especially susceptible to these fears. They can be beaten for liking the wrong boy, the wrong music, or voicing the wrong opinion.
In private, Muslims fear God and wonder whether they are doing enough to please him. The Quran teaches that God is always watching (4:1, 33:52). Muslims hope that when they die their good deeds will outweigh their bad deeds – and even then, salvation is never assured.”
For millions of Muslims, life is controlled by fear. As we focus on praying for these beautiful people, lets pray specifically that they would encounter the perfect love of Christ that cast out all fears.
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” – Psalm 34:4
