“Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples !” (Psalm 117:1)
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). We know, God, that by the power of the Spirit we are given an important role in the expansion of your kingdom. As Your followers in Bosnia enter into spiritually dark places, may they exercise the Kingdom authority You have delegated to Your church through Christ Jesus. There is power in Jesus’s name, and so we pray in the name of Jesus for the redemption of the lost in Bosnia.
PRAY THE BOOK OF ACTS
We pray that every Bosniak would come to understand the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). May Bosniaks experience the gift of life that is in Jesus and know that, once they have that gift, it cannot be taken away, so it is a joy and blessing to share it with others. We pray that every Bosniak would experience the deep joy of the gift of Christ.
PRAY THE HALL OF FAITH
“He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward” (Hebrews 11:26). God, we ask that Bosniaks would awaken to the greater wealth of Christ. As they go through the rituals and motions during Ramadan, may they see how it is futile. We pray that many Bosniaks will see that all that they have is worthless in comparison to the richness of knowing Christ. May multitudes esteem Him more than any treasure they can have here on earth.
Father, we praise you for the opportunity to be part of your Kingdom here on earth. We lift up the Bosniaks to you, praying that they will come to realize that salvation is a gift that cannot be earned through the things that they do; rather, it is free through grace by faith in Jesus Christ. May Bosnia be a nation that praises your holy name, O God. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
