Intercede 2020

The Dual Transformation of Prayer

January-February

As we intercede for Muslims, we often are acutely aware of the barriers they face in accepting Christ. Muslims must navigate through many layers of religion, culture, and familial relationship, which often seem like an impenetrable wall. Yet, as followers of Christ, we can be reticent to examine our own hearts or, better yet, allow the Spirit to inspect our hearts to identify any barriers resident within us toward Muslims. Over my years of ministry to Muslims, I have learned to remind myself that the root of these barriers is a spiritual matter.

Reflecting on Ramadan's
Jewish Roots

March-April

During Ramadan, the ninth month in the Muslim calendar, adherents of Islam fast from dawn until dusk. The Arabic word for fasting is sawm, which literally means “abstinence.”Throughout the daylight hours of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and sexual activity, as well as impure thoughts and words. 

Lands God will Not Forget: The Former Soviet Union Countries
of Central Asia

May-June

The persecution of Christians in former Soviet Union countries in Central Asia is, of course, bad news. But, ironically, it is also good news because it is evidence that people there are embracing the Good News of Jesus Christ in growing numbers and faithfully following Him.

Spiritually Mismatched

July-August 

The Global Initiative team travels internationally and in the United States to train and equip Christians to reach out in love to Muslim people everywhere. Invariably, wherever we go, concerned parents or other family members in the congregation approach us and say, “My daughter (or sister, niece, granddaughter, aunt, co-worker, friend) is dating a Muslim and they are planning to get married. What should I tell her?”

A Miracle Church in New York City

September-October

Since the 1980s, one of the demographic shifts in America has been the influx of West African immigrants. Over the last fifteen years, legal immigrants from Africa have been entering the United States at a rate of about 50,000 per year. This significant influx has raised the percentage of foreign-born African people in America to approximately 4 percent. Many Africans migrate to cities like Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Los Angeles.
