Lovefast 8: Live

By Phil G from Mahabba's Network Team
Inspired by today's entry in 30 Days of Prayer, but with a UK twist!

 

Daily verse

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
— Philippians 2:9-11 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
 

Thought for the day

Live

My dentist is an Ismaili Muslim. Like other Ismailis, he is peace loving and wants to do what he can to improve the quality of life of others. He and his wife are keen supporters of work among poor communities in Central Asia like the Chiwar people featured today in the guide.

When in South Asia I met and worked with Ismailis - gracious people establishing schools, health centres and a variety of community development projects for the common good of all as encouraged by their Imam-spiritual leader, the Aga Khan. He is the 49th Imam and a British national.

The Ismailis, a branch of Shia Islam, are the only Muslims to have as their leader a hereditary descendant of Muhammad; it is the presence of ‘the living Imam’ that makes the community unique.

Ismailis need to encounter Jesus and come to know him, the only living Lord and Saviour. Let’s make that our prayer today for those living here in the UK.

 

Prayer for the day

Pray that Ismaili Muslims will meet followers of Jesus, hear spiritual truth, have revelation of who Jesus is and come to know him as their living Saviour and Lord.

 

Daily action
