OCTOBER - FEAR/RAMADAN
Not knowing one's destiny (or future) is intertwined throughout the whole of
Islam. A tiny child is told that Allah is all knowing and powerful. Allah
will, one day, measure everyone's good and bad deeds to determine if Heaven
or the fires of Hell will be their fate. Good Muslims spend their lives
trying to pray, fast (Ramadan), give alms and go to Mecca, so that Allah
will see their good deeds and reward them with heaven.
Monday - Pray that the fear of evil will cause people to seek the truth. Pray that the believers will see that God can conquer their fear when they stand up for Him.
Tuesday - Pray against the powers of darkness that seek to control the lives of Muslims through fear and suspicion. May Jesus replace their fears with His love and strength.
Wednesday - The usual local greeting is "peace be upon you." Pray that the Muslims will hear of the peace that passes all understanding during Ramadan.
Thursday - Many Muslims receive visions and dreams during the month of Ramadan. Pray that God would reveal himself to seekers during this month.
Friday - Pray for the many Christians who meet on Friday for worship in Arab countries. Pray that they would be able to give their fears to the Lord Jesus.
Saturday - Pray that Christians living and working in the Arabian Peninsula will not succumb to fear of the authorities when it comes to witnessing to the local people.
Sunday - Pray
that God will help locals overcome their fear of the wrath of others, and
fear of loss of family, community, possessions and inheritance when
considering accepting Christ as Savior.
