Muslims (and all people, really) care deeply about their outward appearance or reputation in the community. But Jesus cares about the person’s heart. Religion can change outward behavior but can’t change inward attitudes—only the Spirit of God can do that. Pray for the people of Morocco to be convicted about their need for a clean heart and to seek out Jesus’ teachings on the topic.
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 have the power of the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth. “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13).
Pray for all Christians, new and mature, from a Muslim background in Morocco to trust only the Holy Spirit to guide them into all truth and to obey whatever he says.
“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other” (Rom 12:9-10).
Pray for hatred of wrong in communities throughout Morocco…not hatred of people, but hatred of evil.
Pray that communities would cling to and love what is good.
Ask that God’s spirit would help people honor one another and delight in one another.
Sometimes, as Christians, we are frozen by fear. Fear of persecution. Fear of rejection. Fear of losing something dear to us. Pray that God will give boldness and joy to Christians in Morocco as they ponder what God has done in their own lives.
Lord of community, we pray you would unmake the toxic ways of relating to one another in Morocco. So many negative patterns have been established! So many sins have been entrenched! The enemy has had his way for far too long. Do something miraculous, Lord.
We pray specifically for emerging churches, discovery groups, and new disciples. We ask you would teach them the Way of Christ–the alternative way that enables communities to flourish. Rescue them from toxic relating, and release a spirit of humility and reconciliation over all brothers and sisters in the Messiah.
