New Believer Seeks Fellowship

[232] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Yousef.

A new believer living in the Arabian Peninsula is requesting prayer for fellowship. Yousef came to faith in Jesus after growing up Muslim in Saudi Arabia. He said he often had questions about Islam and God, but no one could answer them. He even went on the hajj, an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, to assuage his spiritual confusion. Then, after doing some research on his own, he learned that Jesus offered redemption from sin. He sought out some Christians in an online ministry, who soon led him to the Lord and are now teaching him more about what it means to follow Christ. But Yousef longs for close fellowship with other believers, and he is not allowed to enter any of the churches for foreigners in his country. Pray that Yousef will find other believers with whom he can fellowship.

  • Father, thank You for revealing Yourself through Jesus Christ to Yousef and many other Muslim background believers throughout the Middle East. In the midst of Yousef's desire to draw near to You, I pray that You will lead him to at least one other believer to fellowship with. May Yousef be an encourager to others and be encouraged by others even today.

  • Lavish him with Your love Lord. In the same way you opened Elijah's servant's eyes so he could see Your mighty hosts, open our brother's eyes so He can see your angels around him. But we know Lord it's not Your will that he be by himself. We are a body, Your church exists so we can fellowship and grow in unity. Bring many Christians to his life Lord.

  • Father, this brother of ours craves a privilege that we often take for granted. Hear the cry of his heart for Your Body, Your family, his brothers and sisters. Lord, provide even one for him to share his faith with and to find encouragement in. Though it may bring peril to both, hide them from disclosure as they worship You together. Meet them there.

  • Father, thank you for Yousef's new found faith. I thank you for those that can help him online, but he does desire that he can fellowship personally.
