Friday Day 3 – March 8, 2019

Pray for the Muslim mosque in our community

Genesis 12:1-3

Now the ​LORD​ said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all trace their origin back to Abraham. Although we hold many different beliefs, in some ways we are cousins in the faith. Today pray for the Islamic Society of Easton, MD as it is their day of worship. Some are frightened by the Muslim faith. Many don’t understand it. Much of what we think we know may come from the terrorist attacks that have occurred in our country or in other places throughout the world. Yet those views distort what the majority of Muslims believe as they seek to live their lives in peace, safety and prospering in their communities. Perhaps you might take time to look at the Islamic Society’s website (http://islamicsocietyofeastonmd.yolasite.com/) and discover what they believe.

Today’s prayer might stir up different feelings and emotions. If so write down some of those thoughts.

Write out your thoughts, prayers, and actions that you have for today’s prayer topic.
