The book of Acts, chapter 9, verses 1 to 6, tells us about a man called Saul who was threating and murdering the disciples of the Lord. On his journey to do so, suddenly a light shined around him from heaven. The Scripture tells us that “he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ He, trembling and astonished, said, ‘Lord, what do You want me to do?’ The Lord said to him, ‘Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.'”
One of the greatest apostles of all time, Paul, was once an enraged violent man-torturing and consenting to the deaths of all who disagreed with his religious view. That is, until he had a face-to-face encounter with God. Once converted, he became a man of incredible love and self-sacrifice.
Pray for ISIS; pray for the violent misguided religiousness of our day. Pray that God will meet them face-to-face and turn thousands of them into ambassadors of the mercy of God.
It’s time to pray.
