Jumu'ah Friday

Every Friday around the world, millions of Muslims gather together in their mosques for a sermon from their imam and a congregational prayer service, much like the Jews have on Saturdays and the Christians have on Sundays. What I would like to do is post a prayer each Friday for the salvation of these Muslims from the darkness into light. If you would, pray throughout the day. You may pray this prayer or come up with your own. If you think about it, offer it up about noon, when they will be at their prayers.

Jumu'ah Prayer

Our Father, creator of all living things. We come before you this day on behalf of the millions of Muslims who do not know you as their Lord and Savior. I pray that, as they gather together in their mosques today, that they would see they are lost. They do these things out of a basis of works, and not out of a heart of faith. Father, I ask that you would grant them new hearts to see you, and not the god of Islam, a god that demands works that only he deems are good or not.  Please save them from their religion of works and bring them into your salvation. Help them to see that Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God as Peter so boldly proclaimed to Jesus. Only you can save them from their sins.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Savior,
