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 eagerly awaits the Kingdom to drink wine with us! (Matthew 26:29)
I am a thirty-year-old man from Tunisia. I was raised in a strict, practicing Muslim family. The first time I went to a church building, I had a government job to watch the Christians. I was surprised by their simple message and wondered why we were afraid of them. One day the Christians gave me a Bible and explained it to me. They prayed for me. I went home and prayed, “God, you know me. If you are true, speak to me.” I had a dream. There were six people being crucified on a cross. The Messiah was also on a cross. My friend from the police gave me a gun and said to shoot them. The Messiah said, “I will never die,” and then he pointed to the others, “They will not die either.” I woke up and called my friend in the dream. He had had the same dream! I understand that only the Messiah offers eternal life and that is why Christians are not afraid. I gave my life to Christ.
Pray that Muslims this Ramadan will have dreams of Christ and will not be afraid to share the Good News!
“But though we had already suffered and been shamefully treated at Philippi, as you know, we had boldness in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in the midst of much conflict.” (1 Thessalonians 2:2 ESV).
Lord Jesus, you see the shameful treatment and suffering of many of your followers in Jordan. And we pray that as your sovereign hand guides them through adversity, they would rise up in boldness in their God to continue to declare the gospel in the midst of much conflict. (1 Thessalonians 2:2) May there be no conflict or persecution that quiets the voices of your church in Jordan.

“We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray.” – Corrie Ten Boom

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
