Muslims in Ramadan 4
• Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim country
Pray for Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim country
• Sumatra is the world’s largest un-evangelized island (over 25 million have never heard the Gospel)
• At least 30% of Indonesia’s 1.5 million students are Christians
• Over 50% of Chinese Indonesians follow Jesus
“There is a huge prayer movement going on in Indonesia. We sense a huge shift in openness among the young people (Muslims and Christians), not just for “new ness”, or for change of things, but for crying out for true freedom. We feel the momentum of God’s Spirit stirring massively in our country. We don’t know what God is doing, but we believe it’s something wilder than we can imagine and that something more amazing than what we prayed or dreamed about is about to take place!”
Some of the current issues that Indonesia is dealing with include alleviating poverty, preventing terrorism, consolidating democracy after many decades of authoritarianism, implementing financial sector reforms, stemming corruption, holding the military and police accountable for human rights violations, and deep racial divides across the nation which frequently result in violence.
A spiritual conflict rages for Indonesia. Strong and ancient occult powers continue to be very active and powerful in most parts of this country. They seek to oppose the influence of the gospel. Modern Muslim stratagems seek to eliminate Christianity and remove the presence of the Good News.
