Prayers for Muslims (May) : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

Welcome to the month of May! These are important times in the lives of Muslims. On our TV screens we see events of great impact in Israel, Iran, Iraq, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Central Asian nations, and in Muslim communities in non-Muslim nations. The events of 9/11 have truly set off a chain reaction of events among Muslims everywhere. They are very much in the spotlight now.

Much of it boils down to 9/11's exposure of the demonic hatred of Islam toward non-Muslims, especially Christians and Jews. The teachings of violent Muslim leaders that have been propogated for years in their schools and in their media have made their way into our living rooms. Suddenly we in the west are much more aware of the satanic hatred that soaks their lives.

While those of us who are threatened by Islamic violence must certainly take steps to defend ourselves, we must keep in mind that God's will is that they should be saved. While we feel revulsion over Islam's demonic nature, we should also be driven by a desperate desire to see these children of God rescued from it, and brought into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.

Joining with others who pray for Muslims is one way you can help that happen. These prayer postings will drop off the front page of this BB in a few days, but continue to check the "New Answers" section. There will be more posted there regularly.

Please pray for Algeria. This North African nation was a French colony for 132 years and gained its independence in 1962 after a bitter war of liberation. Economic failure and political abuses of power have provoked widespread agitation for change. Democratic elections gave victory to an Islamic political party, but the results were annulled by the army. In reaction Islamic terrorists have launched a brutal wave of terror against the population. Pray for miracles of revelation to these people to bring them to Christ, peace and protection for the people, and Godly solutions to their situation.
