“All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the [Moroccan] nation shall worship before you.” (Psalm 22:27)
PRAY WITH CULTURAL INSIGHT
Each evening during Ramadan, Muslims break the fast when they hear the call to prayer at sunset. This meal called, ftour (breakfast) is eaten with all the family gathered together. Because whole families are gathered, this ftour meal can be a great opportunity for the Gospel to be heard by an entire family. Foreign workers are often invited to share ftours with their local friends during this month and it is an incredibly easy time to have religious discussions.
Pray that many believers would be invited this year to share ftours with local families. Pray that the Father would open the door for those whole families to hear the Good News and also experience the power of the Gospel through a touch from the Holy Spirit. Pray that this month, wherever believers interact with locals, that they would find wide open doors to share the Hope they have in Jesus. Pray that as believers talk about the differences in the way they fast versus in Islam, that Muslims would be drawn to the beauty of the Gospel and be hungry to hear more.
PRAY THE BOOK OF ACTS
Jesus told Paul that “I am sending you to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.” (Acts 26:18)
We beseech You, Lord, to send many “Paul’s,” both foreign and local, to do the same throughout every corner of Morocco. Open the doors of access for these servants and enable them to boldly proclaim the Good News at every table they find themselves at.
PRAY FOR SATURATION
We have a God of invitation. He’s not demanding, but He’s not passive. He’s not pressuring, but He’s also not into the mass mailer. He is a God of the personal, costly invitation. As we ask for saturation in Morocco, we can be assured that there is a personalized invitation with the name of each of the 36 million Moroccans lovingly hand-engraved on the front, in rolling Arabic script, stacked and ready to be delivered—by hand, by foot, by website, by ‘chance’ encounters, by natural revelations and supernatural experiences, by any means He deems necessary. He is a relentlessly pursuing God and He is after the heart of each Moroccan.
Pray today for more messengers to carry the invitation to Morocco. Ask for hearts prepared to lay down their efforts to purchase their ‘tickets’ and instead receive their invitations. Ask the Spirit to guide and direct His messengers to the right people, with the right Word, in the right moment. Ask for creativity as we labor to get the invitation out to each of these precious 36 million.
God, we worship You because You chose us! You invited us! And You are inviting every Moroccan. And we worship You…
