In Acts 10 we meet Cornelius, a powerful leader in the government and in his community. He was devout and God-fearing. He was generous. He prayed regularly. He followed the rules.

Most Muslims want desperately to please God and go to heaven and raise their children to do the same. In Islam, eternal life is achieved through righteousness. Cornelius understood achieving eternal life through the same lens.

But in Acts 10, God spoke to Cornelius in a vision, indicating there was more. Cornelius gathered his household and summoned Peter to explain the Good News. Peter started with common ground??In every nation [God] accepts those who fear him and do what is right,??but quickly went on to explain what made the difference: ?There is peace with God through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.?

Those listening to the message were transformed. Cornelius and those in his care experienced transformation.

Read Acts 10 and Abdullah’s story. Pray for people of peace in leadership positions throughout Qatar. Pray God would speak to them through dreams and visions, to stir their hearts with curiosity about Jesus. Ask God to use them and their spheres of influence to introduce those around them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.
