Our Treasure in Jesus
God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people in Bosnia grasp the Good News that Jesus told us you love the world so much that you let Him die so that all who believe in Him should not perish but have eternal life! (John 3:16)
Testimonies from Around the World
This year, we are highlighting real stories from around the Muslim world. Pray that God’s kingdom comes in Bosnia and all around the globe!
I am a thirty-year-old man from Tunisia. I was raised in a strict, practicing Muslim family. The first time I went to a church building, I had a government job to watch the Christians. I was surprised by their simple message and wondered why we were afraid of them. One day the Christians gave me a Bible and explained it to me. They prayed for me. I went home and prayed, “God, you know me. If you are true, speak to me.”
I had a dream. There were six people being crucified on a cross. The Messiah was also on a cross. My friend from the police gave me a gun and said to shoot them. The Messiah said, “I will never die,” and then he pointed to the others, “They will not die either.” I woke up and called my friend in the dream. He had had the same dream! I understand that only the Messiah offers eternal life, and that is why Christians are not afraid. I gave my life to Christ. Pray that Muslims this Ramadan will have dreams of Christ and will not be afraid to share the Good News!
“And he put the wood in order and cut the bull in pieces and laid it on the wood. And he said, “Fill four jars with water and pour it on the burnt offering and on the wood.”” (1 Kings 18:33 ESV).
Lord God, give your church of Bosnia the boldness of Elijah who called for more water to soak the burnt offering before the eyes of the watching world. Grant that same spirit to your followers in Bosnia that they might boldly call upon your power and name to deliver and to witness to your majesty before the watchful eyes of the peoples of Bosnia and Herzegovina and all the nations of the earth.
This image of nightfall over Sarajevo seems fitting for our last day of prayer, as Ramadan ends today at sundown. We expectantly wait to see the fruit of what God has done and is already doing here!
As you look at this image, how does God lead you to pray over the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Bosniak people?
We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray. –Corrie Ten Boom
