John 11:25-26, NIV
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Pray for the Muslims of West Africa to put their faith in the resurrection of Jesus as the beginning of new life for all to enjoy. Pray that they will put aside their head belief in resurrection, and put on faith in the God of the resurrection.

A Dead Muslim Woman Raised to Life in West Africa

by KH

An African worker reported this to Joel News about his work among Muslims.
“Just before dark, the bike broke down in front of a harshly Islamic community. We tried to fix the bike, but had no success. We heard wailing. Someone walking by said, ‘The chief’s wife died, and people are wailing for her.’ We pushed our way through the crowd to the corpse. I had prayed for the sick, but never for the dead. I called her by name, asking God to revive her. I started to feel a weak pulse and warmth in her hand. I continued praying. The woman opened her eyes. Everyone started shouting! They were pushing against me to see the dead woman coming back to life. I kept praying. She sat up and asked, ‘Water, please.’ All became quiet.”
“I said: ‘We are ordinary people; Jesus did this.’ I told them about God’s gift of salvation. The chief said, ‘We have a law that nothing Christian will be tolerated. I am lifting the ban.’ The whole village gathered and 76 men, women, and children received their Savior. When we went to check our motorcycle, it started immediately! Today the whole region is filled with churches.”

Pray that the spiritually dead among these African Muslims will hear God’s truth and live. Pray that they will gladly share the Living Savior with Muslims who need to know of Christ’s resurrection power.
