30 Ways for Muslims to Encounter Christ

Muslims acknowledge Jesus as a prophet from God. Let their curiosity be sparked in this season for them to learn all that Jesus says about Himself. Specifically, that He is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6) so that they may acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior.

Praying Scripture

“Let [Bosnia] praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!” (Psalm 67:3).

Lord, may all Bosnia praise you; may they praise you from every class and sect, from every religious and educational background; may they praise you in the cities and praise you in the villages; may they praise you from the seaside and praise you atop the highest peaks. You alone are worthy to receive glory and honor and praise, Great High King, rightful Ruler of Bosnia.

Praying for the Church

Pray for faith, not fear, to be what controls Christians in Bosnia. Would the church be emboldened by God’s Spirit to resist any temptations to succumb to worry.

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.

No Ramadan meal would be complete without something sweet. Baklava is a popular choice in Bosnia, and its many flaky layers of jufka (or phyllo dough) are filled with crushed walnuts and doused in a sugar syrup. While baklava varies slightly from region to region, something similar to the Bosnian version might be available at your local Mediterranean or Middle Eastern restaurant or grocery store. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee and “taste and see that the Lord is good!” (Psalm 34:8). Pray that Bosniak Muslims would also taste the goodness of God!

Claiming Our Hope in Christ and His Heart for the Nations

With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.” Isaiah 35:3-4

Lord, to those with tired hands, have mercy.
To those with weak knees, Lord, have mercy.
To those with fearful hearts, Lord, have mercy.

Pray for pastors, missionaries, and ministers, that the Lord would strengthen their tired hands. If you know people in Bosnia, choose a few names and speak the blessing of strength and courage over their hearts. Declare the victory of Jesus over every spiritual enemy in Bosnia.
