In Days 11-20

But the fruit of the Spirit is … patience … – Galatians 5:22
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land. – Psalm 37:7-9

Those who impatiently seek justice turn to anger and wrath. But a patient spirit waits on the Lord to act.

Pray that God would give ISIS members patience. Pray that they would wait on the Lord to act and that they would seek His perfect will instead of committing acts of retribution. Pray that they would know the great patience God has demonstrated toward us, and from that knowledge they would be able to forbear with others.

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! – Psalm 27:14
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. – Psalm 130:5-6

Pray that God would give members of ISIS a longing to “wait on the Lord” and to seek His face. As they wait on Him, may they rest in His strength and trust in His sovereignty.

Why does ISIS need Jesus? The whole world, including the Muslim world, needs a new source, a higher source, Jesus Christ as Lord. The only hope for transforming the Middle East is to start with Jesus Christ. Any other source is the wrong source. Read why in ISIS: A History of Violence.
