Sabrina is a Muslim from South Asia who lives with her husband and two young children in Queens, New York. After taking care of her kids and preparing meals, she has little time or energy for venturing out, except for her regular visits to the mosque and produce stores.
But she can always find time to browse Facebook and other social media sites throughout the day, and she regularly connects with her American friends and her family back home.
One day, a video caught her eye. The audio featured a voice speaking her native language and praying for New York City in the name of Jesus.
Intrigued, Sabrina clicked the “Message Us” button and was soon engaged in online dialogue with a ministry team member who graciously told her about Christ’s ministry and message.
The dialogue softened her heart, but she remained skeptical, largely because of the anti-Christian sermons she heard from imams.
Later, when Sabrina’s family faced a crisis, she used social media to request prayer. The woman who prayed for her over the phone told Sabrina that she too had been a Muslim but had found true peace in Jesus Christ.
Social media is empowering Muslims around the world, giving some their first freedoms to express themselves and discover new ideas.
Christians are using digital resources to make the truth of Jesus readily available to all who seek it, fulfilling the prophecy of Jeremiah: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you” (Jeremiah 29:13-14).
Pray that more Muslims will find the Lord through social media.
- Pray for believers worldwide as they develop social media engagement strategies to share Jesus and find seekers throughout the Muslim world.
- Pray for Muslims online to encounter content about Jesus and see “the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:4).
- Ask the Holy Spirit to give Muslim-background believers boldness to share their faith through social media.
These pages are made available every day during the 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World for those who cannot afford to purchase, or do not have access to the booklet.
