Islam teaches that deception under certain circumstances is acceptable and the effects of this teaching breeds mistrust—of God and of others. But the Bible tells us “Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator” (Colossians 3:9-10). Pray for people in Morocco to be people who pursue truth and feel conviction about deceiving others.
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
Pray for Christians from a Muslim background in Morocco to trust that God is unchanging and faithful in his relationships. He always keeps his word.
“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19).
“Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth” (Exodus 33:15-16).
Pray that emerging streams would host His presence as they devote themselves to prayer.
Pray that God’s presence with believers in Morocco would draw men and women to the true King.
Pray that Christians in Morocco will have vision and urgency to see all parts of their country reached with the gospel.
Lord, help us to release control and allow your Holy Spirit to build your church. We pray, Father, for grace to raise up new generations of leaders; grace to refuse a spirit of control; grace to resist the love of ego and our ‘little kingdoms’; grace to embrace the way of Jesus.
Lord, make Christians in Morocco more like Paul, who poured out his life like a drink offering, who labored and toiled for his spiritual children. Give them the grace that was on his life to establish self-sustaining gospel communities. And Lord, as leaders of emerging movements imitate Christ, allow new facilitators and new leaders to imitate them. In this way, Lord, may your church sustain itself: disciples making disciples, leaders raising up leaders, groups starting groups, and churches planting churches.
