City of Light: Ramadan day 8

"Guide us to the straight path"

The first chapter (Surah) of the Quran called 'The Opening' (Al-Fatih) is a prayer which all Muslims recite when they pray. Part of it asks God to 'Guide us to the straight path – The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have earned [Your] anger or of those who are astray.' Today let's pray to our God who hears, that this prayer that every Muslim around the world prays would be answered. May each Muslim in Karachi and beyond find the 'straight path', the one who said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Praying today:

"Cornelius replied, ‘Four days ago I was praying in my house about this same time, three o’clock in the afternoon. Suddenly, a man in dazzling clothes was standing in front of me. He told me, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your gifts to the poor have been noticed by God! Now send messengers to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. He is staying in the home of Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore.’ So I sent for you at once, and it was good of you to come. "“Cornelius replied, ‘Four days ago I was praying in my house about this same time, three o’clock in the afternoon. Suddenly, a man in dazzling clothes was standing in front of me. He told me, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your gifts to the poor have been noticed by God! Now send messengers to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. He is staying in the home of Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore.’ So I sent for you at once, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here, waiting before God to hear the message the Lord has given you’” (Acts 10:30-33).

Ask for workers to find those who have already had dreams or visions.

Ask for apostles to access new communities.

Ask for God’s Spirit to respond to those like the Centurion who are genuinely seeking Him.

DECLARING HIS LIGHT TODAY OVER:

Korangi Town: Korangi Industrial Area is in Korangi Town and is one of the largest industrial areas in Pakistan. There are more than 5000 industries which includes very large factories. Pray for righteous factory owners who will treat their employees just. Pray for business owners to come to faith and open the door to the Gospel for their employees.

April 7, 2024

In many parts of the Muslim world, Islam is passed down more through tradition, family, and society than in formal education. Prayer, fasting, and going on the Hajj are mostly done in a communal context. Today we pray in faith for our brothers and sisters in Karachi to find spiritual community and family. We pray they would have vision for sharing what they are learning about Christ in their community, families, and networks.

Last night many Muslims celebrated the "Night of Power" hoping that God would show up miraculously to change their circumstances (health, financial, relational, etc.). We continue to pray that they would encounter Jesus who already miraculously "showed up" as the Word who became flesh to change their current realities and eternity through His life, death, and resurrection.

The month of Ramadan is known as ‘the month of repentance'. As we pray for a gospel movement to transform this nation, let us cry out for God’s Kingdom to come, for a spirit of repentance to fall on the peoples living in Karachi, whether they are Sunnis, Shiite, Sufi, or Christians from a Muslim background; rich and poor, young and old, male and female.

Muslims are encouraged to think about the poor during the month of Ramadan, to sympathize with them, and to make donations. Jesus loved the poor and said, "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God" (Luke 6:20). Pray for Muslims in Karachi to encounter this radical teaching and to wrestle with His command to not just donate to the poor, but to know that the kingdom of heaven belongs to the poor.

Muslims do not believe in the divinity of Jesus but in the Quran, Jesus is called the "Word of God". John 1 shares about the Word of God, the Word through whom all things were created, the Word who is God and the Word who became flesh to live among us. Let's pray today that Muslims would seek to understand Jesus as the Word, that they would be interested to read John 1 and the rest of the Injil (Gospels) that they also believe to be Jesus' books. Pray that their understanding of Jesus will be transformed.

Islam is very rules based with laws from the Quran as well as expected ways to live and act from the Hadith (recordings of their prophet's actions). Jesus cares about the heart more than the actions and He's looking for people who worship Him in spirit and in truth. Pray for the people of Karachi to be convicted about their need for a clean heart and to seek Jesus' teachings on the topic

Today many Christians celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus from the grave. Muslims in Karachi may be aware of Easter either in the news or if they have interactions with Christians who may take Monday off as part of their celebration of Easter. Pray today for the people of Karachi to be interested in what Easter is to Christians and to understand what truly happened. Pray that they'd step around the untrue stories they've heard about Christians and Easter and seek the truth and truly understand why Jesus' life, death, and resurrection are so important.

Islam has a high reverence for God. One might compare their understanding of God to much of the Old Testament where God is all powerful, fully revered and only somewhat knowable by the most holy. We know that God Almighty wants an intimate relationship with His followers because He is a good Father who knows the hairs on our head (Luke 12:7). Lord, let all new followers of Christ in Karachi be filled with joy at knowing the intimacy of God, who calls us "beloved".

City of Light: Ramadan day 19

Muslims deny that Jesus died on the cross and instead ascended to heaven without dying. In their view such a death would be the shaming of a prophet and that God would never let such a thing happen. This belief denies the act of atonement foundational to our faith as Christians. Most Muslims have never had the opportunity for someone to talk to them about how this is the only way for man's atonement, the sinless for the sinful, the most honored one being shamed to cover our shame. As many Christians around the world enter into a time celebrating Christ's death, burial, and resurrection, pray for Muslims in Karachi to have the eyes of their heart opened to consider the possibility of Jesus' death and resurrection. To hear that truth of why Jesus had to die and what accepting His death as payment for sin can mean for them.

Cultural and religious conservatism while trying to protect values create distance between people. This can go both ways as Muslims in the west feel ostracized from people who view them as different and in Muslim countries as Christian minorities and foreigners can be viewed with apprehension and kept at arms length. Because of purity laws in Islam, Muslims can be afraid to enter a non-Muslims home (as their dishes may be unclean). This can create distance and lack of opportunity to hear other ways of viewing the world and of relating to God. Today let's pray for a breaking down of divisions and for opportunities for Muslims and Christians in Karachi to relate to each other and to dialogue about spiritual things. Pray for Christians as the minority to not fear their neighbors and for Muslims to have interest in their believing co-workers and a desire to know about them and their faith.

Sadly Muslims are taught that the Bible we have today is changed and that they shouldn't read it. Even though the Quran says to read it the vast majority haven't seen a copy in their language. They will tell you that the Bible found during Muhammad's time was still true but that now there is only a corrupted version. What they don't know of course is that there are many copies of the Bible pre-dating Muhammad (who lived around 570 - 632 AD). Let's pray today that Muslims would seek the truth of whether God's Holy Books have been corrupted and have a desire to read them. Pray that they would find translations in their own language that are becoming widely available online and via apps.

Another of the 5 pillars of Islam is fasting. This month Muslims around the world fast from dawn till dusk from food and water. Many don't know why they fast besides that it is a requirement. It can be hard especially when Ramazan is in summer (Islam goes by the lunar calendar so Ramazan moves each year) and for those who work in hard labor or outdoors. Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matt 11:28-30)

City of Light: Ramadan day 13

A third of the 5 pillars of Islam is tithing (zakat). Muslims are required to give 2.5% of their net worth each year to the poor. In Pakistan by default zakat is withdrawn automatically from peoples bank accounts (unless they opt-out) by the government. For many this is another obligation enforced on them. Because of the way the system is enforced there isn't as much a feeling of being generous but just another obligation. When zakat is automatically deducted, the person doesn't even have a say in what way the poor will be blessed by the money. In Karachi there is a huge disparity between the rich and poor. And more than 40% of Pakistanis live below the poverty line. Many Muslims choose to give their zakat during the month of Ramazan (the automatic deductions also happen this month). This can often mean lots of 'generosity' in Ramazan and the poor and beggars will be very active getting hand outs from the rich during this month. Let's pray for the people of Karachi to be challenged by the contrast between a religious rule and a heart posture and to want to understand more about the "new heart" that the Bible teaches about (Ezekiel 36:26). For generosity to extend throughout the year and to come from a right heart.

City of Light: Ramadan day 12

March 22, 2024

Muslims pray Namaz (also called Salat) 5 times a day. These prayers are highly ritual and involve specific steps, physical positions (standing, bowing, etc.) and specific phrases. They are preceded by purification rituals and are encouraged to be done in groups. These prayers show great honor to God and doing them consistently requires dedication and devotion. At the same time they can simply be ritualistic actions done in obedience and are one way in nature. God does deserve reverence and devotion, but He is also the God who speaks. We are designed for relationship with Him and we are invited to share our hearts with God and to receive from Him. Today we ask the God who entered into our world to show His nearness to reveal Himself to the Muslims of Karachi. Let's pray for divine encounters where people hear His voice and respond to His call. Even during their Namaz.

The first of the 5 pillars of Islam is the shahadah. The shahadah is their statement of faith which says "There is no God but God and Muhammad is the Messenger of God." Muslims state this declaration of faith 5 times a day during their daily prayer rituals and it is the basis of their beliefs, being monotheistic and following after their prophet's teachings.. There is a high veneration for Muhammad.

In Islam there are 4 holy books: the Quran, the Tawrat (Pentateuch/Torah), the Zabur (Psalms), and the Injil (the Gospels). Though 3 of these books are found in the Bible, most Muslims have never seen or read the Bible. Today we ask God to give the people of Karachi a hunger for His word that they'd be interested in these books and instead of believing those who say they have been corrupted, to read them and see for themselves what they say.

Most Islamic cultures have authoritarian structures. This means that those with power have a lot of sway over what is acceptable and allowed in their society. Some times this is seen as a hindrance to the gospel but it can also open doors. With the Edict of Milan in 313 A.D. following Jesus went from being persecuted by the state to first allowed and eventually accepted as the state religion. This came of course with its own issues but it was this change of heart by the authoritarian system that opened the doors for the gospel to spread like it never had before. Today let’s pray for those in authority, in the government but also for tribal leaders and family elders to have a change of heart. That these leaders would encounter Jesus and doors would open for the gospel in Pakistan and across the Muslim world.
