Still Praying For The Nations

Just about a month ago, I made a commitment to pray for evangelization of the nations. To be honest, there have been some days that I have really prayed and then others that I have just gone through the motions. But this week, as I have been studying Solomon's prayer in 1 Kings 8, I was convicted again for the need of praying for other peoples of the world. Solomon prays:
"Likewise, when a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel comes from a far country for your name's sake (for they shall hear of your great name and your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm), when he comes and prays toward this house, hear in heaven your dwelling place and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to you, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house that I have built is called by your name." (1 Kings 8:41-43)
Here is Solomon, the King of Israel, God's chosen people, praying for other nations to come and repent before His God. Why? Because he wants all the peoples of the earth to know His name and fear Him.

I have continued to make my way through the 60 Day Prayer Experience with Operation World. Would you join with me in praying today for Malaysia? It is a country that has almost 28 million people and only 4.3% of the country is Evangelical Christian. The largest religion in Malaysia is Muslim. Please pray that the gospel would go forth and penetrate this country so that the people of this nation would know the name of Jesus and fear Him. Submit to Him. Be saved by Him.

This is a short video put out by Operation World to help lead in prayer for the people of Malaysia.
