Our Treasure in Jesus
God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Bosnia grasp the Good News that Jesus’ cross was the one place in the world’s history in which your justice AND mercy were simultaneously fulfilled as He was marred beyond human semblance, despised, rejected, sorrowful, acquainted with grief, smitten, afflicted, pierced, crushed, chastised, and anguished (Isaiah 52-53) so that WE don’t have to be.
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!
Sakib was born in a Muslim family but had many doubts about his religion. He found the truth in the Holy Bible. He said, “Now it is my responsibility to call my family and people in my area to the path of truth, for the [Holy Bible] is an ideal medium.” He is now interested to start learning much more about the Bible. Pray for Sakib and multitudes of others around the Muslim world who are being transformed through the Living Word of God.
“Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.” (Jeremiah 10:5 ESV).
May the idols of culture in Bosnia be revealed for the unspeaking, unmoving frauds that they are, and may the church have the clarity and wisdom to address idolatry in all of its forms. (Jeremiah 10:5) Lord God, would you grant believers in Bosnia humility, gentleness, and discernment as they fight idolatry in community.
During the month of Ramadan, many Muslims will read through the entire Quran, Islam’s holy book. In fact, it is believed that it is during this month that Muhamed was given the revelation of the Quran.
As you look at this image of Islam’s holy book, how does God lead you to pray?
