One of my other vacation projects is to finish my memorization of Romans. It’s no doubt not proper hermeneutics at all, but to me the parts about the Gentiles always sound appropriate for Muslims. “My heart’s desire and prayer to God for [the Muslims] is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record, that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. . . . That the [Muslims] might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, For this cause I will¬†confess to thee among the [Muslims], and sing unto thy name. And again he says, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people . . . Isaiah says, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to rule over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.” Oh God, make these verse true for the Muslims. “As it is written, To those whom he was not spoken of, they shall see; and they that have not heard shall understand.” It’s been long enough, my Lord, for them not to see or hear or understand. It is not for your glory, my Lord, for this to continue any longer. Please, open their eyes, open their hearts, call them to yourself. Break Satan’s hold on that part of the world, my Lord, let your dominion be established as far as the sun shines. Father, you promised, if your Son asked for the uttermost parts of the earth, that you would put them under his feet, that he would rule them with a rod of iron. My Lord, this is the¬†center of the earth; don’t leave them any longer in such darkness. “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Let it be so!
