Pray for the families who lost loved ones in a suicide bomb attack in a capital city. Pray for those who were injured that they will heal.

Pray for new believers who are meeting together; the enemy has already made attempts to cause division among them. May they follow the Lord's leading with wisdom and with love for one another. Ask for rapid maturity, unity, courage and boldness as His church is established for His glory.
"Sara", a muslim work colleague of "Mike's", asked him, "When I met your wife, she was wearing a hijab. Is she a Muslim?"
"Actually, she wears it just out of respect for our neighbors. We are committed believers in Jesus." Mike continued, sharing the gospel of how Jesus paid for our salvation. He said that, although God wants good works in our lives, he saves us by faith apart from works. "Oh," Sara replied happily, "we also believe that Allah accepts us by both our faith and our works." It seemed that Mike's efforts to explain did not sink in. Pray that God will prepare hearts to understand the gospel in its purity, and give grace and boldness to workers to make it clear.
