Spiritual Identity

Continue praying along the same lines as yesterday. It is important to lay a good foundation before we pray.

Remember your spiritual identity. We are the children of God by the blood of the Messiah. We serve the one who has all authority in heaven and on earth. Proclaim these truths in worship. Pray for the following subjects for yourself and Muslim who may be in your town, region or country.

Praying about our Spiritual Identity:

Where there is bitterness—meekness:

Pray: “Lord, remove all bitterness from my attitudes concerning Muslims. Help Muslims deal with any bitterness in their own hearts.” (Eph 4:31; Hebrews 12:15)

Where there is fear/intimidation—love:

Pray: “Lord, help us overcome fear. Your love casts out fear. Help me to live that way.” Muslims often live in fear of others, fear of evil spirits and fear of death. (1 John 4:18; 2 Timothy 1:7)

Where there is lust—purity:

We and all Muslims need to escape the corruption which is in the world through lust. (2 Peter 1:4; 1 john 2:16) Muslims are not free from pornography and covetousness. Knowing that we are also tempted, pray for yourself and for them.

Where there is violence—peace:

Many Muslims really do not like the violence that they see in some aspects of Islam. Many reject it and refuse to live in that manner. Pray for them to know the way of peace. May God help us as believers to not be sources of violence and hateful attitudes toward Muslims. (Mt 5:9; Luke 1:78 and 10:5-6; Romans 3:17)

Testimony from Algerian

Nacima, whose family comes from an Algerian Kabyle background, was born and grew up in France. Her mother had some conservative and folk Islamic beliefs but her father was more open. Nacima learned from her mother that God exists but even so she lived with the fear of death.

Despite the very positive aspects of her family life, school and sports, Nacima found emptiness in her soul. At the age of 18 while in university she and her friends explored questions like “Why am I on this earth? Does my life have meaning? What happens after death? However she did not hear anyone speaking about Jesus as being more than a historical figure. Even after two years of university studies it was clear to Nacima that God exists but she still did not have real faith. Then during the summer of Nacima heard of Jesus in a new way. While visiting her family in Algeria for two weeks her older sister told her how Jesus had transformed her life. Nacima saw that God’s love was manifested through the Messiah, Jesus. In late July Nacima realized the depth of her personal sinfulness. With the help of her sister and the Holy Spirit she discovered the true light. Nacima believed that Jesus died and rose for her and faith took root in her heart. Death had been defeated by Jesus’ resurrection and Nacima’s fear of death was overcome. She found her reason for living; it was to serve the one who gave his life for her.

  1. this is an encourging testimony! i have a special burden for the Berber peoples of Algeria, and i find this testimony to be encourging.
    i would have to argee with the Muslims that much modren, Western infulence is degenerate and ungodly. but the problem is that at least some Muslims think all Westerners are Christian, so when they live a bad lifestyle, it gives them a bad impression of what Christians are like. i feel sorry for them. many Westerners are completely godless, and care nothing for faith.

  2. Most people don’t WANT to be “saved” and people like the ones who run this website are why.

    • If even a few do want to be saved, then should that not be a decision that they make? And if that is true, then is it really so offensive to you for there to be a place where they can find that? Is it even your concern? Your post smacks of bitterness. How did you come to be so “anti-” that you felt compelled to make such an inflammatory and emotional comment?

    • @Will: If even a few do want to be saved, then should that not be a decision that they make?

    • @Will. Elaborate? What do you find offensive?
      God bless the people who run this site, and may many prayer warriors be raised up as a result. Perhaps some even who are willing to GO and tell Muslims the Good News of the Gospel.

  3. “the so-called “Arab Spring,” a wish-fulfilling false analogy with 1989 that blinds many to the dangers of the ongoing revolts against various despotic regimes in the Middle East.”

    “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done” is the only solution……Until then…REST in the Lord

    Best regards in the Lord
