God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Jordan grasp the Good News that we will be presented to you perfect IN Christ! (Colossians 1:28)
I was never very religious, and I was a Muslim simply because my parents were. I believed that God was distant and angry with me. I suffer from a rare allergy condition. I feared for my life and in order to overcome my fear I tried to pray but felt nothing. Then I tried to memorize the Koran but as I read it, I found many contradictions and the words disturbed me. I felt that God wanted me to ask one of my friends about the Messiah. I didn’t know that she was a Christian, but she prayed with me and quoted Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” I loved those words, and I began searching for testimonies on the internet. I researched until finally I felt that I was wasting my time by prolonging my decision. I knew the truth, and I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. Pray that many throughout the Muslim world will know of God’s love and begin to love like Paul wrote about in 1 Corinthians 13.
“Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”” (Acts 21:13 ESV).
Lord Jesus, raise up a generation of followers in Jordan so burdened for your glory among the nations and so convinced of your eternal worth that they might say with passion and hope “I am ready not only to be imprisoned, but even to die…for the name of the Lord Jesus.” (Acts 21:13).

God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Jordan grasp the Good News that Jesus knowingly took one step after another toward Jerusalem knowing He would be condemned to death, mocked, flogged, crucified and then be raised on the third day! (Matthew 20:19)Read
God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Jordan grasp the Good News that Jesus' cross was the one place in the world's history in which your Father's justice AND mercy were simultaneously fulfilled as He was marred beyond human semblance, despised, rejected, sorrowful, acquainted with grief, smitten, afflicted, pierced, crushed, chastised, and anguished (Isaiah 52-53) so that WE don't have to be.Read
