Daily verse

Of David. A psalm.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
— Psalm 24:1 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

Thought for the day

Threat

How do you feel when you come across a building that was clearly once used as a church now a being used as a mosque?

You see a big sign with strange words like masjid, markaz, ghausia, jalal and so on. Maybe text in a foreign alphabet. Perhaps a sign proclaiming “Islamic Mission”.

If we have any love for the Gospel of Jesus, we must feel something when we see buildings which are the result of the sacrificial faith of folk like us now set apart for Islamic teaching and worship.

In the 30 Days booklet we read of the Bajun whose life is centred around the mosque and who may regard Christians as enemies.

Do we feel threatened when mosques become churches? Are we disturbed?

Here is another question.

Is Jesus Christ any less Lord? Is anyone beyond His reach? When the lost reach out for God, can He not meet them where they are?


Prayer for the day

Lord, deliver us from fear, and resentment. Lead us in love and faith. Glorify your name.


Daily action

Pray that the Lord will meet those who camp in the mosques for the last ten days of Ramadan.
