Pray for Mauritania: Wednesday, July 25

“Why?”

In the gospels, Jesus was often faced with the question “why?” Encounters with Him stirs up intrigue and unsettles the status quo.

Jesus responds to each “why” question with power and grace; welcoming peoples’ curiosity and indignation, yet always taking the questioner closer to the heart of the matter – the upside-down Kingdom in which He is King.

Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to stir the hearts and minds of Mauritanians to ask questions about their own religion, and about what they hear of Jesus. Let pray for fascination, productive “discomfort,” new trains of thought, and discovery of the Kingdom that is beckoning them.
