God is at work!
ISIS. al-Qaeda. Boko Haram. These radical Islamic terror groups invade our news channels every day with stories of destruction and fleeing refugees that will mark history. But there is an even greater story that is unfolding across the Muslim world.
Islam is the fastest growing major religion in the world today, and has been growing since its inception in the Arabian Desert nearly 14 centuries ago. In the midst of this unparalleled growth, another story is unfolding, a story that has escaped the headlines. Muslims are turning to faith in Jesus Christ!
Movements to Jesus
Since 2001, there have been a further 72 movements of at least one thousand Muslims turning towards Christ, numbering in the hundreds of thousands. It is no small coincidence that this great awakening in the Muslim world has coincided with an unprecedented prayer movement for Muslims such as the one you are now participating in as you join in 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World.
This year, we continue to pray through the House of Islam, recognizing that the Spirit of God is moving through Rooms where thousands of Muslims are encountering Jesus and committing to follow Him for the first time in history. As always, we pray that we might better understand and contribute to this great ingathering of Muslims into the family of faith in Jesus Christ.
