Lovefast 11: Why not?

By Gillie from Mahabba's Network Team

Inspired by today's entry in 30 Days of Prayer, but with a UK twist!

Daily verse

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
— John 3:8 New International Version (NIV)

Thought for the day

Why not?

Stories of Jesus are spreading among the Riau Melayu and people are beginning to follow him

In many other parts of Sumatra, and all over Indonesia, thousands of Muslims are turning to Jesus and following him.

Churches of new believers are planting churches which are planting churches… movements to Jesus are multiplying!

One man was asked why he changed his views and embraced Isa as Saviour and Lord:

For the first time, someone told me about Isa. I had only to compare Isa with what I formerly believed.

Author David Garrison calls it a wind blowing through the House of Islam:

Movements to Jesus are happening in numbers never seen before….. Not limited to a remote corner of the Muslim world, these new communities of believers are widespread, from West Africa’s Sahel to the teeming islands of Indonesia — and everywhere in between.

Why not among the Riau Melayu – and why not here in the UK?

Prayer for the day

Let’s pray some big, God-sized prayers today - that movements to Jesus would continue to grow and that we would see the same birthed here among the Asian communities of the UK.
