Author of “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus” Needs Your Prayers

Many (zillions?) have benefited from his book, “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus.” But now he could use their prayers — and yours too. Nabeel Qureshi was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer in August. His recent video (from his hospital bed) is incredibly sobering. See his website…

for background info. But see this video for a most sobering update:

Can we all please unite in prayer for this courageous man of God?
(Thanks Jeff.)

2) How Should Christians Respond to Muslim Refugees coming to our Land?

Moscow Grand Mosque

The Syrian war has displaced more than 4 million people, according to the UN refugee agency. “This is the biggest refugee population from a single conflict in a generation!” Governments everywhere are doing their best to absorb these numbers. How will we respond to the large numbers of Muslims refugees coming to our countries and those living in refugee camps? Hear more on this, along with possible solutions, by attending the Legacy 2016 Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Train at Engaging Islam Intensives Course in Boulder, Colorado.

9) Can we Meet Muslims as People Rather than Terrorists?

We liked Matt Stone’s article at…

http://www.zwemercenter.com/christians-and-muslims-alienate-each-other/

In his 12 steps at the conclusion of the article, notice he doesn’t presume to tell Christians to keep quiet about their faith (so we don’t offend others). He just asks us to meet Muslims as PEOPLE rather than members of a religion. His article focuses on seeing individuals rather than nations. It seeks dialogue rather than diatribes. What were your thoughts about his admonitions?

5) “Engage” Course Can Unlock Outreach to Muslims in Your Neighborhood

The Engage Course is a dynamic and interactive learning experience that will empower your witness to Muslims. Some of the most experienced evangelists and experts working with Muslims in America and around the world today will coach you to engage in life-transforming conversations with the Muslims living, working, and studying in your community. Engage features 10 interactive videos and lesson plans you can easily host at your church, life group, or home. (Live speakers are also available if desired to enhance your training experience.)

11) 30 Days Prayer For Muslims For Children And Families

Family PrayerJesus teaches us to love our neighbors and to pray for our enemies. For many of us, Muslims are neighbors we hardly know. Others see them only as enemies and terrorists. But there is a great way to learn to love Muslims like Jesus does. Ramadan is June 18th to July 17th. Perhaps there’s no better way to experience Ramadan than praying together for Muslims with the children in our household. That’s why we’re excited about the new 30-Days-of-Prayer-Booklet made ‘Just for Kids.’ The booklet would work for family devotions as well as children’s church since it offers to many creative prayer ideas. Find it here…

5) “30 Days of Prayer” for the Muslim World Starts June 18

prayer for muslimIn case you wondered, the “30 days of Prayer” campaign is alive and well. In fact, at a conference in Phoenix last week, I had a chance to speak to the point person for the initiative. Due in part to some special initiatives, the June 2015 initiative might end up being the biggest in history. The online presence is better than ever too. You can purchase and download the ebook instantly, online, for just $3.

There are videos there too, and a special kids’ version. If you’ve never done a “30 Days” campaign with your church, this is the best time to start. We suggest: go there now.

6) You’ve Seen the Book, but What about the Movie? (“In the House”)

wind in the house of islamNo doubt, you’ve seen the book (now in its 3rd printing), “A Wind in the House of Islam.”

http://www.amazon.com/Wind-House-Islam-Drawing-Muslims/dp/1939124034

But did you know that Paul, David and Jon (almost sounds like a singing group from England?!) have now turned the book into a DVD, “In the House of Islam DVD?” It includes 56-, 32-, and 17-minute versions, all on the same DVD, making it useful for a variety of contexts, including class room, home group, Sunday School, church service, etc. You’ll learn firsthand how God is at work in the world’s largest non-Christian religion (Islam) drawing hundreds of thousands of Muslims to new life in Jesus Christ. Don’t miss this opportunity to journey beyond the headlines and into the remote corners of the Great Commission, where God is at work… In The House of Islam!

2) Discipleship Tools for Muslims

8) Christians and Muslims in America Have an Image Problem

american-muslim-woman-story-topThat’s the crux of an article by Shirin Taylor. She writes, “The rest of the world sees us as intolerant, belligerent, prideful, nationalistic, and extremist. As the daughter of Christian and Muslim parents, I feel like a kid stuck in a bad marriage, trying to salvage my parent’s reputation and begging them to get along.” See the whole article at…
