The month of Ramadan is known as ‘the month of repentance,’ and so as we pray for a gospel movement to transform this nation, let us cry out for God’s Kingdom to come, for a spirit of repentance to fall on the peoples living in Morocco, whether they are Sunnis, Shiite, Sufi, or Christians from a Muslim background; rich and poor, young and old, male and female.
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
Our inheritance is not timidity: it is in God. “For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba Father’. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we also share in his glory” (Romans 8:15-17).
Pray for Christians from a Muslim background in Morocco to renounce fear and every form of slavery to it.
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8).
Boldly ask that the veil of deception would be removed, that people would see the destructiveness of sin and living for the ego.
Pray for a spirit of deliverance to work mightily in Morocco to enable them to sow to the Spirit.
Ask that the reward for sowing to the Spirit would be gratifying and convincing, especially for our new believing brothers and sisters.
“Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?” (Romans 2:4).
Declare the loving kindness of God, that His mercies are new every morning, that His faithfulness to Morocco is indeed great.
Declare that this year is the year of the Lord’s favor, that this month is the month of repentance, that this month is when God’s Kingdom is at hand.
Across church planting movements globally, we see God granting a kind of grace for repentance. When believers share, people respond. There is a softness of heart, an openness to the move of the Spirit. Unlike Pharaoh, who hardened his heart and stubbornly refused to submit, people are ready to respond with soft hearts. In disciple making movements, apprentices of Jesus share with friends, with family, with their natural communities, and God’s grace for repentance is present.
Lord, soften hearts. Let those with ears to hear, let them hear. Give all those whom you are wooing the courage to repent and follow you.
