To Help you Pray this month for your Local Mosque Community. 

Interviews with those, who after coming to North America, chose to leave Islam to follow Jesus, identified some key common factors that were fruitful in their journey. 

We selected parts of testimonies of believers of Muslim background who shared how those fruitful factors played a significant role in their journey to Jesus. Let’s pray that these factors would be active in more Muslims lives!

Fruitful Factor 3 – They had a Bible in their heart language 

"...This put me in almost a frenzy to learn, so I put my bets on Islam and Christianity, the two religions that made the most logical sense to me, as I was not interested in pagan religions. This led to me researching the deep history of Islam and reading the four first books of the New Testament, “the good news,” and the gospels. I was alarmed and shocked at the history of Islam and how it was created. I was also amazed with the Gospels, with Jesus, with what he taught and how he was the prophesized Messiah.  

There were also some verses in the Gospels that were intriguing to me, like what Jesus meant when he asked a question in Luke 20:41-47. This was definitely an answer to my confusion about the trinity. Then there's also John 8:55-59. The depth of these verses was so profound to me since it says that Jesus is before Abraham, but that he is also claiming to be God, quoting from Exodus 3:13-14. 

...Now came the tough part, I understood Jesus and what he had done in my life, and I was ready to accept him, but this meant to lose and distance myself from my family. So, it took me courage and reading the Bible more and more and praying."
