(SHEE-ah) – As mosques and minarets dot the skyline, the Islamic call to prayer rings out as a constant reminder of the dominant religion in the area. Where followers of Jesus make up less than 0.001% of the local population, the few believers there feel isolated and lonely. Pray for believers to be encouraged. Pray that the God of hope will “fill [them] with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit [they] may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13 ESV). Pray, also, that they will find encouragement and fellowship in meeting together, laying aside feelings of mistrust.
