Daily verse

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
— Romans 12:15

Thought for the day

Weep with those who weep

Recently a Believer from a Muslim Background had several bereavements in her family and found herself in numerous Muslim funeral gatherings.

During these she sat respectfully and prayed in her heart to Jesus while the Imam performed the prayers. Here is her testimony of what happened next:

'Observing the rituals I had questions that I wanted to ask the Imam. He was in a hurry and did not seem interested in what I was asking about the Muslim faith.

However, fifty women could hear me ask these questions. As he had to rush off I began a conversation regarding my Christian faith with the women there.

I had a captive audience and I gave my testimony as a lot of them did not know I was a Christian.

There are many Muslim women who have no faith or who are simply keeping the rituals of Islam but don't understand what they practice'.

Prayer for the day

Pray for Muslims that you know personally, or have heard about through the news, who are suffering bereavement or loss of any kind.

Daily action

Would you be ready to answer questions Muslims might have about your faith? Not everyone is as they ask different questions to secularists. Prepare yourself by reading 'Seeking Allah Finding Jesus' or 'No God but one' both by Nabeel Qureshi.
