In many parts of the Muslim world, Islam is passed down more through tradition, family, and society than in formal education. Prayer, fasting, and going on the Hajj are mostly done in a communal context. Today we pray in faith for our brothers and sisters in Morocco to find community and family in your Church. We pray they would have vision for sharing what they are learning about Christ in their community, families, and networks.
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 distinctive marks are not humiliation or inferiority, but Christ’s victory, unity in Christ’s love, and the cross. “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23).
Pray for Christians from a Muslim background in Morocco to be freed from every need to self-promote, boast, and compensate for any sense of inferiority. May they embrace Jesus’ example of self-denial and follow Him.
“And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, ’Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of Morocco!’” (Rev 15:3).
Father, this scripture speaks truth: one day, Morocco will sing the song of Moses, the song of Miriam (Exodus 15:20-21), and they shall dance before the Lord as a once-captive people now walking across a dry sea, a once-imprisoned people now liberated from the brutality of Pharaoh. The truth is that all the people of Morocco shall sing: great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty; just and true are your ways, O Lord, King of Ages!
Christians are often persecuted by friends and family. Sometimes they have a hard time finding people who are willing to learn and grow with them. Pray that God will guide new believers in Morocco to those they already know who are searching.
Lord of compassion, would you rise and deliver your imprisoned people. Have mercy on those whose attention is captured by distractions and cheap thrills; have mercy on those whose time is consumed by workaholism and mindless activity; have mercy on those whose energy is sapped by the toxic effects of addiction, over-consumption, and escapism. Lord, have mercy; Christ, have mercy.
