30 Ways for Muslims to Encounter Christ

There is a hadith (teaching) in Islam that says, “Be good to your mother, Paradise is under her feet.” This positive teaching is often negatively used to prevent Muslims from questioning or rejecting the religion of their parents. Today, we pray for Muslims in Bosnia to have courage from God to honor their parents, but not blindly follow their religion and to instead pursue Truth.

Praying Scripture

“Cornelius replied, ‘Four days ago I was praying in my house about this same time, three o’clock in the afternoon. Suddenly, a man in dazzling clothes was standing in front of me. He told me, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your gifts to the poor have been noticed by God! Now send messengers to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. He is staying in the home of Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore.’ So I sent for you at once, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here, waiting before God to hear the message the Lord has given you’” (Acts 10:30-33).

Ask for workers to find those who have already had dreams or visions. Ask for apostles to access new communities. Ask for God’s Spirit to respond to those like the Centurion who are genuinely seeking Him.

Praying for the Church

Pray that God will raise up Christian leaders out of each kanton and opština in Bosnia. Would the church encourage and not hinder young leaders, providing open doors for their full participation in sharing the Gospel.

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.

Listening to worship music can be a powerful way to engage your heart and mind during prayer. Watch this video of a popular Christian song, sung in the Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian language. As you listen, pray prayers of thanksgiving that we serve a God who speaks every language!

Claiming Our Hope in Christ and His Heart for the Nations

You are the God of dreams and visions. Lord, we pray that you would visit our Muslim brothers and sisters in the night in dreams. And we pray, too, that you would visit them during the day in open visions. Release hope. Release peace. Release revelation of Christ in the hearts of the people of Bosnia.
