Day 12 – Crisis and opportunity
The constant stream of refugees to Europe is creating a crisis and resistance is mounting in Europe. Thousands of refugees are still trying to get to Europe, completely unaware of the emotional state of Europeans. However, this situation does create an opportunity for the Church to reach out to refugees, whose salvation we have been praying for over decades. Let us pray for an awakening in the Church in Europe so that she is enabled to reach out to the hundreds of thousands of refugees and immigrants. Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”. (John 3:3)

Day 13: Fulani herdsmen
Thousands of Nigerian Christians are killed every year by Fulani herdsmen. The Fulani have a very strong resistance to Christianity, and they believe that their existence is threatened by different social and economic factors. Many Christian women have been widowed and their children left fatherless in the wake of such attacks. CBN Nigeria Director, Felix Oisamoje, explains “I think one of the things we need the most is prayer… After all, the Bible tells us that we do not war against flesh and blood, so we know there are spiritual issues, so we need to pray.” Pray for spiritual breakthroughs amongst the Fulani, and that all violence will cease when through dreams, visions, miracles and Godly intervention, they meet the Prince of Peace.

Day 14: The Hui in China
The Hui are the largest and most widespread of China’s Muslim minorities and are widely scattered throughout the country. Although there are a few scattered believers, this may be the largest people group in the world without a single known fellowship of believers. The Hui have a long history of a strong commitment to Islam. As the Hui read the Qur’an, pray for them to be drawn to Jesus the Messiah (Isa al Masih in the Qur’an). Pray for dreams and visions of Jesus to stir Hui households with a hunger to study the Bible together, and apply what they learn. And He will destroy on this mountain the surface of the covering cast over all people and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; for the LORD has spoken. (Isaiah 25:7-8).

Day 15: Increase of radicalism
There are clear indications of an increase in animosity towards Christianity in several nations, such as Indonesia, Pakistan, Somalia, Algeria and Egypt. Christian businesses, churches and homes are being burned down, believers are being beaten, and women (and especially young girls) are being forced into marriages with Muslim men. As Christian suffering increases, believers are forced to operate deeper underground. However, due to the violence and death caused by radical Islam, more Muslims and radicals are walking away from Islam because they are disillusioned with it. Pray for the protection of Christians, and that persecution will not silence their witness for Jesus.
