[ShBride 23] They Won!

Shiite Muslims – a people God is pursuing to be Jesus’ Bride

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
Ps. 30:11-12, NLT

Recently on all the local television stations in the Middle East, we watched as jubilant Iraqis danced in the streets and shouted with joy because their soccer team won the Asian Cup!

You have seen and heard the plethora of tears and heart wrenching mourning emanating from Iraqi families in the midst of violence and death in their land.

Today, thank God with us for the JOY God gave many Iraqi Shiites when their football (soccer) team won the Asian Cup. As we watched Iraqis celebrating their big win, we kept envisioning what their celebration will be like someday - in the not too distant future - when millions of them passionately follow Jesus.

Pray with us that one day Shiites in Iraq (and the nearly two million Iraqi refugees in Syria and Jordan) will shout for joy because they know Jesus! Ask God to turn Iraqi Shiites' mourning into joyful dancing. Ask Him to remove their clothes of mourning and give them clothes of joy, so they can sing praises to God and not be silent.

Thank you for praying the past couple of weeks for God to unify His body living and working among Shiites. We are confident that God unifies His Body when He is preparing to WOW a community with His presence and transform them into a righteous nation who follow Him.
