Daily verse

As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith.
— 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

Thought for the day

7%

The 30 Days booklet speaks today of the Muslims of Nepal who make up just 7% of the population, a minority by any measure.

Among them some now follow Jesus in the teeth of strong opposition.

Here in the UK, Muslims probably make up less than 7% but their presence is perhaps more prominent than that number suggests.

And here too people born as Muslims are now following Christ.

The UK the legal system provides for much more freedom of religion.

Some believers have even developed public ministries.

Many others feel the need to keep a low profile.

Still others face rejection and even violence from their community.

We have a particular responsibility to pray for these BMBs (Believers of Muslim Background), to welcome them and to support them wherever we might come across them.


Prayer for the day

Pray that those BMBs living in the UK will know grow in faith love and hope and be a powerful witness to their people and others too.
