30 Ways for Muslims to Encounter Christ

In Islam, God has 99 names – such as All-Merciful, The Beneficent, The Source of Peace – but none of those names is Love. Father God, you reveal yourself as the God of Love throughout the Bible; please reveal yourself to Muslims in Bosnia with your true nature.

Praying Scripture

To sustain growth, churches, groups and leaders must cultivate bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. We must practice the New Testament’s ‘one another’ passages. Without this grace, a disciple making movement simply will not happen. Pray for our brothers and sisters in Bosnia to more fully experience the “one anothers” in this passage from Romans 12.

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them… Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other… When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality…Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other.”

Praying for the Church

Many Christians in Bosnia struggle financially. Pray that as new bodies of believers form, they will come together and generously help one another with needs.

Praying with the 5 Senses

This month, we want to encourage you to pray in new or unique ways as we lift the Bosniak people. Each day, we will be highlighting a way you can engage one of the “5 senses” to specifically pray for Bosnia.

As Ramadan begins, many Bosnians will see a stark contrast in public life. Where just yesterday cafes were filled, today, they will remain largely empty until after sunset. Grocery stores, banks, and shopping centers look different now that Ramadan has begun. As you ponder this, pray for God to fill empty hearts with the Good News of his Love.

Claiming Our Hope in Christ and His Heart for the Nations

We are to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. As we pray for a gospel movement in Bosnia, let us pray that the Lord would sanctify our love.

“Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” (John 15:9b-11).

Pray for the grace of abiding in Christ.
Pray for the grace of obedience.
Ask that the joy of Jesus would fill believers’ hearts as they remain in His love by obeying His commandments.
