To the Ends of the Earth (week 18)

Luke Brodersen

Our Goal: To labor in knowing and doing everything Scripture says about prayer.

Bible Verse & Quote on Prayer

“Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” (2 Corinthians 9:6)

"Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference." - Max Lucado

Congregational Bible Prayer

A Prayer from Psalm 98

“Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
   for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm
   have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made known his salvation;
   he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
   to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
   the salvation of our God.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
   break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
   the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers clap their hands;
   let the hills sing for joy together
before the Lord, for he comes
   to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
   and the peoples with equity.”


Prayer for the Nations

Over the next 30 days spanning May 6 - June 4, we will commit to praying for the Muslim World together as a church body. Each day, we will pray for a Muslim people group outlined in our Muslim World Prayer Guides, then on Sundays we will come together to pray over these people groups as a church body. Over the course of the next 30 days, we will be dedicating time to pray specifically for the following people groups and regions:

  • The Fulani in West Africa

  • Egypt

  • Mali

  • Bosnia and Herzegovina

  • The Rohinga in Malaysia

  • Kazakhstan

  • Maldives

  • United Arab Emirates

  • Turkey

  • The Afar in Djibouti

  • The Hui in China

  • The Masalit in Sudan

  • The Patoulis in Central Asia

  • Bengali Muslims in South Asia

  • The Muslim community in Chicago

  • The Kaka’i in Iran & Iraq

  • Morocco

  • The Saho in Eritrea & Ethiopia

  • Somalia

  • The Uighur in China

  • The Swahili of Zanzibar in Tanzania

  • The Kohistan in Pakistan

  • The Bedouin in Levant

  • Muslims across the USA

  • Turkmenistan

  • Worldwide Muslims during the “Night of Power”

  • Jordan

  • The Hadhramis in Yemen

  • Musim migrants in Europe

  • Worldwide Muslims celebrating the end of Ramadan

For many of us, these next 30 days may be the first time we have considered praying for Muslims. As you prepare your heart and look to God this week, consider the following prayers:

  • Ask God for inspiration on how you can offer hospitality to Muslims near you.

  • Pray for workers in majority Muslim areas who are sharing the love of Christ with their communities.

  • Pray for opportunities to show the love of Christ to Muslims around you.

  • Pray for, and offer generous hospitality to, those you know who are serving Christ among Muslim people.

  • When you gather with fellow believers, encourage them to pray with you for Muslim communities near you and around the world.
