Islamist Violence Driving Muslims to Christ

[249] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Farhad.

A church in Kobani, Syria, is seeing more Muslims turn to Christ after becoming disillusioned with Islam and its violent adherents. “If ISIS represents Islam, I don’t want to be a Muslim anymore,” Farhad Jasim told NBC News. Farhad attends the Church of the Brethren, a church established in September 2018 and composed mostly of former Muslims. Farhad became skeptical about Islam after witnessing the self-proclaimed Islamic State’s brutality during the Syrian civil war. “It didn’t take me long to discover that Christianity was the religion I was searching for,” he said. Pray for Farhad and many others like him who have embraced Christianity. Pray also for restored relationships with their families.

  • Father, The best thing that can come out of this world's chaos is that people see Jesus as the ultimate alternative. Use the enemy's violence to draw masses from the darkness of Islam. Bless and strengthen all these new believers so they can stand firm against the enemy's backlash. Use all the Middle east chaos to break the enemy's stronghold here.

  • Father let these believers know they will not be put to shame but that with all boldness Christ shall even now as always be exalted in their lives. Let them know Christ and the power of His resurrection as they share in His suffering. Let them be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication make their requests known to you.
