In Days 11-20

But the fruit of the Spirit is … faithfulness … – Galatians 5:22

Members of ISIS are driven by distorted and misplaced faithfulness, fueling the evil they commit. They are living in great darkness.

But God desires to shine His light on them. They are in chains, but God wants to set them free. They are pursuing religion and living under the law, but God is holding out His hands to them, calling them to a life of surrendered faithfulness through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” He redeemed us in order that the blessings given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. – Galatians 3:13-14

Pray that God would show His faithfulness to ISIS members. Pray that they would in turn surrender to Him by turning from evil and living in faith as Christ did in love.

All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies. – Psalm 25:10

Pray that God would give ISIS fighters revelation of how to walk in true faithfulness and love, and that they would be driven by a desire to obey His word.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” – Lamentations 3:22-24

Pray that the faithfulness of the Lord would pursue them until they finally surrender to God and know Him.

God is faithful to give justice to those who cry to Him day and night. Khadija was a poor Muslim woman who was desperate for justice and sought it relentlessly. What can we as followers of Christ learn from Khadija? Read the story in A Lesson on Persistence.
