Zakat, one of the five pillars of Islam, requires Muslims to donate a set percentage of their wealth each year to Muslim charities. The New Testament teaches Christians to give generously from the heart as opposed to a set percentage. Pray for the people of Morocco to be challenged by the contrast between a religious rule and a heart posture and to want to understand more about the “new heart” that the Bible teaches about (Ezekiel 36:26).
Each of us who comes to Christ must repent of and renounce every pact, promise, or identity we held before faith in Christ. Join us in praying for our brothers and sisters in Christ from a Muslim background as they repent of their former identity as Muslims. This prayer is inspired by chapter 7 and 8 of Liberty to the Captives by Mark Durie
We are called to walk in the light and live in truth:
“But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God” (John 3:21).
Pray for all Christians in Morocco, particularly those from a Muslim background, to live in truth and for all of their relationships to be marked by truthfulness.
“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9).
Ask for the grace of persevering prayer among believers in Morocco.
Ask the Prince of Peace for leaders of the emerging ‘streams’ of churches and groups, that would never become so busy with activity that they cease praying extravagantly.
Ask for believers in the emerging movements to have the unabashed persistence of the widow in asking, seeking, and knocking.
Pray for dreams that will compel people to seek their meaning. Pray for whole families, groups, and communities to have the same dream about Jesus.
“Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days. The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses. Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy! The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon.” Isaiah 35:1-3
Father, what seems impossible – deserts becoming like green mountains – is possible with you.
We pray on behalf of Morocco. Let the impossible happen!
Pray now the most impossible prayer you can imagine for Morocco.
