Father, we pray for the Muslim people of the earth. Grow a deeper longing in their hearts to know You, Jesus. And for those believers in radical Islam, we ask that You would pour out your love and peace on them. Give them wisdom, Father, to know when they are acting immorally. Protect their families and those around them from the violence that might befall them as a result of their violent beliefs and actions. Above all, we pray for their salvation.
Father, thank you for these words, Your reminder that because we have You, we do not need to be afraid of anything:
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil men advance against me
to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.
