Since the Arab Spring, more and more people are expressing disillusionment with Islam. What they see happening around the world in the name of Islam, isn’t what they want either.
The Arab Spring has pointed out that there are masses of Muslim peoples who are disappointed and disillusioned with life. For these masses it is not surprising that they look to Islam, more religion, as their first default to what their hearts desire. God has placed a desire in us for life, truth, healthy relationships, for Him. Satan comes to kill and destroy. Satan is the father of lies.
Disappointment and disillusionment with every day life and with religion is a powerful thing. Pray that God will turn this disillusionment to seeking for Jesus who brings hope and life and freedom. Pray for protection over the young generation, that the might not get tricked into materialism, atheism, addictions etc.
Jeremiah 18:1-12 [below] talks about the rise and fall of nations in the hand of God.
How to pray:
- Pray that in Morocco more and more people will be disappointed and disillusioned with Islam and an Islamic government.
- Pray that Islamic spiritual leaders will express their own disappointment and disillusionment with Islam and that they will do this in humility.
- Pray for a movement away from Islam and toward a relationship with Christ.
God is the potter, may God shape the people of Morocco into beautiful pots that follow Him.
- Pray for the Moroccans to “repent of its evil.” v.8
This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel. If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.
“Now therefore say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘This is what the Lord says: Look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.’ But they will reply, ‘It’s no use. We will continue with our own plans; we will all follow the stubbornness of our evil hearts.’” —Jeremiah 18:1-12
