  • Father you said we could speak to the mountain so we speak to the harden hearts of the mosque leaders and and ask for the Holy Spirit to woo them to himself that they would grow soft and weaken under the love of Jesus. He would capture their hearts and bring them into repentance. I speak to Safa's faith and tell it to rise up big for God is pleased!
