Prayer points 1 Samuel 15 & Pray for the salvation of Muslims
1 Samuel 15
1 Samuel 15:3, 7-9 Lord, forgive us for the times when we obeyed You half heartedly, as Saul did. Give us a heart to honour you with the fulness of our heart and complete obedience.
1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.”
May we never forget what pleases the Lord most. If we give the Lord everything we have but withhold our love He will be dissatisfied. Gold, silver, and even time will pass away. Ask the Lord make your heart His throne and for Him to live there forever.
1 Samuel 15:24 Then Saul admitted to Samuel, “Yes, I have sinned. I have disobeyed your instructions and the Lord’s command, for I was afraid of the people and did what they demanded.
Saul only admits his sin when backed into a corner. Ask the Lord to give you a tender conscience, quick to grieve over your sin and repent.
1 Samuel 15:29 And he who is the Glory of Israel will not lie, nor will he change his mind, for he is not human that he should change his mind!”
The Lord is the glory of Israel. He does not lie or change His mind as humans do. His Word is everlasting. All he has said will come to pass. Ask Him to keep you in the centre of His will.
Pray for the Salvation of Muslim’s
Muslims believe in the uniqueness of an all powerful and supreme Allah. Muslims also believe that Allah is creative and eternal. Muslims also believe that Allah is unknowable and that it is impossible to ever really know him or have a relationship with him as a personal saviour. According to Islam, Allah holds himself apart from mankind.
Pray that in this time of Ramadan they will have a full revelation of the true God and His loving character (Hebrews 8:8-9).
The Muslim worldview is strongly influenced by an awareness of the supernatural and the presence of good and evil spirits known as jinn. Jinn are greatly feared and are often thought to be responsible for illnesses and misfortune. Superstitions control many aspects of a Muslim’s everyday life and often result in them living in constant fear. This fear reveals a heart cry and desperate need that can only be met in the person and authourity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray against the fear that influences many Muslims (1 John 4:18).
Galatians 4:22-25 tells us that Ishmael was born as a result of works resulting in slavery. Islam means submission, and a muslim understands that he is a servant of Allah. As Christians, through Jesus, we know that we move from being servants to becoming sons and daughters.
Never underestimate the work of the Holy Spirit as you pray for Muslims. Allow God to teach you how to pray and to share His heart with you concerning them. Vast numbers of Muslims have come to Christ as a result of supernatural encounters. Many have dreams and visions of Jesus. It is only God who can open blind eyes and soften hearts. Only God can bring true conviction of sin and create new life (Romans 8:26, John 16:8).
