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.
