Islam teaches that God is unknowable and as a result many feel like God is distant. We know the truth is that God Almighty wants an intimate relationship with His followers because He is a good Father who knows the hairs on our head (Luke 12:7). Lord, let all new followers of Christ in Morocco be filled with joy at knowing the intimacy of God, who calls us “beloved”.
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 live in freedom. “It is for freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).
Pray for Christians from a Muslim background in Morocco to stand firm in Christ and reject the yoke of slavery to salvation through works.
Jer 2:11, 13
“Has any nation ever traded its gods for new ones, even though they are not gods at all? Yet my people have exchanged their glorious God for worthless idols! “For my people have done two evil things: They have abandoned me—the fountain of living water. And they have dug for themselves cracked cisterns that can hold no water at all!”
Repent on behalf of Morocco.
Pray that God would expose the worthlessness of their idols: workaholism, busyness, vanity, and addictions of all kinds (e.g. Instagram, social media, gaming, pornography, drug and alcohol abuse, etc.).
Ask that God would powerfully break cycles of escape, acting out, and addiction.
Pray for a divine return to the fountain of living water, who is Christ.
Often it is hard to find places for believers to meet because the rest of their families are not believers and will not allow it. Pray for places to meet and study the Bible and pray.
“‘Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’ So I spoke the message as he commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army” (Ezekiel 37:9b-10).
Lord, with one phrase–‘Lazarus! Come forth!’—you raised a dead man; and with one phrase–‘Come, O breath, breathe into these dead bodies that they may live again’–you raised a dead nation; you reconstituted them into an army: the forces of Yahweh. And today, we join in accord with your Word: Morocco, live! Receive the breath of the Lord, the Spirit of the triune God. Be raised to life. Return and live. Be dead no longer; slumber no longer; be sick no more. Return to Life, Morocco, and live!
