“Prayer is not a preparation for work, it is the work. Prayer is not preparation for the battle, it is the battle.”
– Oswald Chambers
The greatest blessing in my life is the fact that I have been saved from a life of sin and misery and adopted as a daughter of the King of the Universe! Talk about an awesome thought! Those of us who have been born again by the Spirit have the privilege of praying for those still lost in their sin. And there is no larger group of people living without the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ than Muslims who comprise almost a quarter of the world’s population.
I love Oswald Chambers’ quote. It reminds me that the most important thing I can do in bringing others to Jesus is to pray. The Holy Spirit must do the work of changing hearts. The Spirit breaks down strongholds and does a work in the heavenly realms that we do not understand. And I get to be a part of this work by praying.
As believers, let’s commit to praying for the Muslim world and ask the Holy Spirit to move in a mighty way, opening hearts to the truth of the Gospel. Let’s ask Jesus to reveal himself through dreams and visions as He has done across the globe. Let’s ask the Father to provide Bibles, Christian radio and television broadcasts, and all the resources necessary to bring the Good News to the Muslim world. And let’s pray that the Christian Church in Muslim majority countries would grow strong and be faithful in proclaiming the Gospel despite the terrible persecution that exists there.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be used by God in a mighty way!
