“You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.” (Psalm 77:14)
From the parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard: “For the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard” (Matthew 20:1). God, Your ways are not our ways. We praise You for Your generosity and ask that many Bosniaks would enter Your Kingdom, even up until the last hour of the day.
PRAY THE BOOK OF ACTS
“So on the next day Agrippa and Bernice came with great pomp, and they entered the audience hall with the military tribunes and the prominent men of the city. Then, at the command of Festus, Paul was brought in” (Acts 25:23). Here, Paul experienced Jesus’ words in Matthew 10:18- “and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles”. In the same way, may believers, when this happens, experience Jesus’s promise as it was for Paul, “do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given you in that hour.” (Matthew 10:19). God, we pray that Bosniak believers will be bold in this time. We pray that they would see the darkness around them during Ramadan and that they would boldly and lovingly share the gospel with the lost Bosniaks that they meet, even if it leads to shaming and persecution. May the word of their testimony lead many to Christ.
PRAY THE HALL OF FAITH
“By faith Rahab the prostitute did not perish with those who were disobedient, because she had given a friendly welcome to the spies” (Hebrews 11:31). Thank You Lord, for the reminder that no one is too far from Your saving grace. We pray for many Bosniaks, no matter their background, to be given new identities in Christ through faith.
Father, we thank you for the Bosniak believers that are already in Bosnia. We pray that you will use them to bring others into your kingdom. May they not shrink back during Ramadan, but instead may they boldly speak the gospel to those who desperately need it. May you soften the hearts of those who will hear the gospel, and may you bring them into your family, as no one is too far gone for you to save.
