Sh Br 45: He Counts Their Tears

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

You have kept record of my days of wandering. You have stored my tears in your bottle and counted each of them. Psalm 56:8 (CEV)

Crying softly as she waddled into the women’s room of the mosque, the older Shiite woman determinedly proceeded to the center of the room. Her tears became more intense as she pressed her body, clad in a flowing black garment from her head to her toes, against the shrine which the room encircled.

This extravagantly decorated shrine is seen by many Shiites as having supernatural importance because it is home to the body of Ruqiyeh, the daughter of Imam Hussein, revered as holy by Shiites. Although she has been dead for centuries, her resting place is believed to house a great deal of power for those who pray there.

After resting against the colorful shrine for a while, the sobbing woman suddenly crumbled to the floor. For minutes she laid next to the shrine, still grasping its exterior bars with her hands.

At first her tears were quiet, but gradually genuine outcries of despair followed. All of the sudden the woman, still prostrate on the floor, began to illegibly yell and loudly cry out as her body went into convulsions.

Causing quite a scene, many of the other Shiite women in the room quickly abandoned their prayers and fellowship with others to encompass the space around the desperate woman. Her piercing cries were not quenched for a long time.

Right now, there is a desperate cry emanating from Shiites at over 25 different shrines throughout the Middle East, Arabian Peninsula, and Central Asia.

How can they find peace without knowing and following Christ?

Pray for Shiites like this woman who are desperately crying out at shrines, wanting to experience blessing and power through dead saints. Pray they cry out to God and discover the blessing and power that comes only from Him, the Lord of heaven and earth.

Friend of His Shiite Bride, let’s pray that thousands of Shiites encounter Jesus when they visit special shrines in the coming days.
