Hi Faithful Readers,
After some thought I have decided to start a weekly prayer newsletter for anyone who wants to join with me in praying for the Holy Spirit to move in the Islamic world. The rational for this newsletter is as follows:
Matthew 9:37-38: Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
The greatest harvest of souls from the Muslim world is just beginning. This century will witness entire Muslim communities and even countries coming to Jesus. Our Lord has as much compassion for them as he does for all humans, so I want to encourage you to join me in praying fro the coming harvest.
Each week I will send out to you information and research on what God is doing in a particular Islamic country, with prayer points specific to that situation. If you join the newsletter please join me in praying a few minutes each day for that country. We cant go there, and if we did we couldn’t preach, but the Holy Spirit has ways and means of reaching souls if we just pray. That’s why Jesus said what he said in Matthew Nine.
I have called the newsletter PICTURE, which stands for Praying (for) Islamic Countries That Unacceptably Restrict Evangelism. On the right of the setfreeseminars.com home page you will see the sign up section. Just punch in your email address and we are off and running.
