Ramadan: Living Grace

Yemen-Hadramaut-a-veiled-woman-in-traditional-clothing-gettyHer name is Noor. She lives in a country where it is very dangerous to follow Christ.  Noor  was first drawn  to  Jesus  because  of the  compassion  He  showed  towards  women – something she’s experienced little  of in her life.  She has heard the story of Christ for a number of years.  Like  many  Muslims,  she  says  that  she  loves Jesus, but  because  of  her spiritual  blindness,  she  had never  understood  that  His sacrifice  was  meant  for  her.  Even  though  she  had  heard  His story and liked  what she  heard,  she  struggled to  fully  wrap her heart around  it  all  and  what  it  would mean for her life.  Then  a couple weeks  ago,  in a conversation with a Christ follower,  the  Spirit opened  her  eyes to  the  fact that  she was  personally  in  need of  a  Savior!  We now have a new sister who is learning to love Jesus with her life. Pray for Noor that she will experience the fullness of His Spirit.  Pray for  her  as she  is  realizing  what  it  means to  be  a  first fruit.  Ask that  she  catch  the  vision  to share the Good News  with those around her  and that a community  of  faith  would  soon  surround her.  Pray  also  for  other  men  and women  like Noor; those  that  have  heard  Truth, but  don’t  understand  how it  could  change  their  lives.

Colossians 1:5-6

“When the true message, the Good News, first came to you, you heard about the hope it offers. So your faith and love are based on what you hope for, which is kept safe for you in heaven.  The gospel keeps bringing blessings and is spreading throughout the world, just as it has among you ever since the day you first heard about the grace of God and came to know it as it really is”.

Thank you Heavenly Father for reaching out to all people with love.  You are good.  You are holy. You are sacred.  Without Your holiness, there wouldn’t be any good in the world.

Thank you Lord Christ for giving us grace.  You are Living Grace sent from heaven.  It is in this Grace that we have hope for heaven. Grace awaits us in heaven. And it is this hope that sustains us and to which, we patiently wait…

We were saved with this hope in mind. If we hope for something we already see, it’s not really hope. Who hopes for what can be seen? But if we hope for what we don’t see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
(Rom 8:24-25)

fase1Thank you God for sending the good news as a traveler to sojourn all over the world, bringing hope to Your people.  For You are faithful, never-changing, Everlasting to Everlasting.   We pray that the blessing of Messiah will arrive in every city, to every people, every nation and in every tongue.  It is for Your glory that we seek and intercede.  We pray that all people will meet Living Grace, the hope of heaven.  We pray that the good news traveler will continue to travel on this great journey until all have heard.  In this we pray.  Amen.

  • Please pray for Muslims all around the world who are praying and fasting during Ramadan. Pray that they will meet the good news traveler.
  • Please pray that God will reveal Messiah, Living Grace.
