In Islam normal daily prayer is a focused ritual exercise which is an expression of worship and honour toward Allah. Muslims do not expect to deeply know God or hear His voice. Personal requests are possible in Islam, but the formal ritual prayers are definitely the most important prayer activity for Muslims.
Toward noon today thousands of Kho in Pakistan will be praying in their local mosques. Many will think that their prayer should earn them merit before God. This people group numbers about 320,000 people. There are no known believers. No one is seeking specifically to reach them at the present time. The Kho appear to be very resistant to the Gospel. Most of them live in the upper valleys, where farming is very difficult due to the dry, rugged mountain terrain. The heart language of the Kho is Khowar.
- Ask the Lord specifically for breakthroughs among the Kho people, and that they will ponder questions like ‘Does God still speak today?’
- Also ask God to send labourers to this difficult harvest for long-term ministry among the tribes of northern Pakistan.
- Pray that the Kho people will receive dreams and visions of Jesus.
- Remember that Pakistan is going through a VERY difficult time just now, our prayers will make a difference.
