Revelation 17:14 “They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”
Pray for “Apollos,” the guard of a Christian family. Apollos claims to be a Christian, but his life does not bear the fruit of someone walking with the Lord. Pray that Apollos will grow “deep roots in the soil of God’s marvelous love” and that his life will bear much good fruit as a result. Apollos will be getting married in December.
For many Nigerien Muslims, honor is more important than truth.
1 John 1:5 “This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
Pray for “Hama,” a Zarma man who accepted Christ, was baptized, and was discipled by missionaries for many years. After five years of following Christ, Hama abandoned his faith and returned to Islam. Although many Christian peers have tried to reach out to Hama, he has rejected all contact and he no longer allows his wife and children to listen to God’s word. A friend of his stated that Hama is lost, lonely, and sad.
“Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”” Acts 21:13
Ask the Lord Jesus Christ to raise up a generation of Nigerien followers that are so burdened for His glory among the nations and so convinced of His eternal worth that they might say with passion and hope “I am ready not only to be imprisoned, but even to die…for the name of the Lord Jesus.”
I was never very religious, and I was a Muslim simply because my parents were. I believed that God was distant and angry with me. I suffer from a rare allergy condition. I feared for my life and in order to overcome my fear I tried to pray but felt nothing. Then I tried to memorize the Koran but as I read it, I found many contradictions, and the words disturbed me. I felt that God wanted me to ask one of my friends about the Messiah. I didn’t know that she was a Christian, but she prayed with me and quoted Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” I loved those words, and I began searching for testimonies on the internet. I researched until finally, I felt that I was wasting my time by prolonging my decision. I knew the truth, and I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ.
Pray that many throughout the Muslim world will know of God’s love and begin to love as Paul wrote about in 1 Corinthians 13.

God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Niger grasp the Good News that Jesus knowingly took one step after another toward Jerusalem knowing He would be condemned to death, mocked, flogged, crucified and then be raised on the third day! (Matthew 20:19)Read
God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Niger grasp the Good News that Jesus' cross was the one place in the world's history in which your Father's justice AND mercy were simultaneously fulfilled as He was marred beyond human semblance, despised, rejected, sorrowful, acquainted with grief, smitten, afflicted, pierced, crushed, chastised, and anguished (Isaiah 52-53) so that WE don't have to be.Read
