M5 – Pray for the Muslim World
M5 is a prayer initiative inviting Christians to spend at least 5 minutes in prayer twice a week to pray for Muslims to become Jesus-followers; to understand Jesus’ love for them and that He paid the price for their sins so that they can have full assurance of God’s forgiveness and have complete assurance of going to heaven. Subscribe now and stay informed of prayer needs in the Muslim world. You can also join our weekly ISA Prayer Watch via WApp, which focusses on prayer issues regarding Muslims in South Africa.
Watch More than Dreams, which are five true stories of Muslims whose lives were transformed when they saw Jesus Christ in a dream or a vision. May this encourage you to continue in fervent prayer for the Muslim world!
Today a deep bondage of fear and legalism is keeping the Khawlan from walking in the Father’s love and freely worshipping Him in spirit and in truth.
For hundreds of years the Khawlan living on both sides of the Saudi-Yemeni border have been able to engage as one tribal group. This has now changed.
The language of the Khawlan is a unique and important feature of their tribal identity. A translation of Scripture in their heart language will speak to their identity and tribe, as the incarnate truth of Immanuel.
Until recently Khawlan women were an active part of Khawlan society. There has been an increase in depression by women struggling to adjust to this new way of life of Wahhabi Islam.
The Khawlan bin Amer tribe inhabits the rugged Sarawat Mountains of southern Saudi Arabia and northern Yemen. Islam is now the prevailing religion, while their belief of evil spirits (jinn) still influences daily life.
The church and mission organisations are planning on how to plant more churches. They are very aware of Islam and especially radical Islam that is growing and are praying on how to respond appropriately.
