Our Treasure in Jesus
God, we love you! As your Church, help us to do what it takes to let the people of Bosnia grasp the Good News that Jesus has authority even over all of nature! (Matthew 8:27)
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!
Hamid is a Muslim background believer who is facing a lot of difficulties and persecution because of his faith. He was reported and arrested by the police and is going through a court case because he decided to follow Jesus. He has been beaten by the police to threaten him, and the law may not help him. This is a fear most of the Muslim people have when they decide to turn away from Islam. Please pray for Hamid as he goes through this difficult time. He has more enemies than friends, and his family may also not step up to help him. Pray for his protection, strength and comfort from God.
“Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.” (Revelation 2:10 ESV).
Lord Jesus, you have gone before us on the Way, showing what it means to be faithful unto death. Would you give your church in Bosnia the grace to remain faithful in proclamation and holiness unto death, that they might joyfully recieve the crown of life that your perfect grace has prepared for them. (Revelation 2:10).
Although the war is over, some aspects of life are still divided along religious and ethnic lines. Schools in many parts of Bosnia are divided out based upon ethnic identification and teach a curriculum to match. Children who live and play next door to one another may be separated during school hours and taught a different version of their nation’s history.
As you look at this image of a school visibly divided into two parts, how does God lead you to pray for reconciliation in Bosnia?
His authority on earth allows us to dare to go to all the nations. His authority in heaven gives us our only hope of success. And His presence with us leaves us no other choice. -John Stott
