15 May How Can We Pray?
first a bit of
When our Arabic speaking friend would ask young Muslim men along the route, “Can I pray for you?” they would respond with surprise, “No — I am not clean. I have not washed, I sinned yesterday, I am not clean.” However, after explaining that we can all speak to God and come to Jesus as we are in a simple prayer, like a conversation, it radically shocked and amazed the men he encountered. Once he started talking about Jesus or praying, young men would flock to him to hear more. Refugees are often startled by the simplicity and intimacy of a prayer to a God who hears them as they are.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Pray that as refugees seek truth, they find Jesus. Pray that people from all different nations intimately experience the power of prayer. Pray that they discover the closeness of a God who loves them dearly, exactly as they are.
Thank you for your faithful prayers!
