30 Ways for Muslims to Encounter Christ

Muslims deny that Jesus died on the cross and instead ascended to heaven without dying. This belief denies the act of atonement foundational to our faith as Christians. As many Christians around the world enter into a time celebrating Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, pray for Muslims in Bosnia to have the eyes of their heart opened to consider the possibility of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Praying Scripture

“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8).

Boldly ask that the veil of deception would be removed, that people would see the destructiveness of sin and living for the ego. Pray for a spirit of deliverance to work mightily in Bosnia to enable them to sow to the Spirit. Ask that the reward for sowing to the Spirit would be gratifying and convincing, especially for our new believing brothers and sisters.

Praying for the Church

Pray for the church in Bosnia to live in the light. Pray that believers wouldn’t live by the flesh but rather would be filled with the Holy Spirit.

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.

Bosnia is synonymous with coffee. Traditionally brewed in a copper dževa, this potent drink is enjoyed slowly in the company of friends and family throughout the day. If you have coffee at home, brew a cup, or, if you’re not a coffee drinker, consider visiting a local cafe to smell the scent of brewing coffee. Pray over the thousands of cups of coffee that will be consumed today in Bosnia. Pray for Spirit-filled conversations to happen as coffee is slowly sipped. Pray for whole communities to discuss how to seek God together.

Claiming Our Hope in Christ and His Heart for the Nations

Across church planting movements globally, we see God granting a kind of grace for repentance. When believers share, people respond. There is a softness of heart, an openness to the move of the Spirit. Unlike Pharaoh, who hardened his heart and stubbornly refused to submit, people are ready to respond with soft hearts. In disciple making movements, apprentices of Jesus share with friends, with family, with their natural communities, and God’s grace for repentance is present.

Lord, soften hearts. Those with ears to hear, let them hear. Give all those whom you are wooing the courage to repent and follow you.
