Loving a Mosque Community Together

Jesus exhorts us to love our neighbour as ourselves. Mosque communities are often the target of hate and racism, but we are called to love. Perhaps the most loving thing we can do is to pray. There are 650 mosques across Canada, scattered in our neighbourhoods. Our vision is that each mosque across Canada would have at least one church praying regularly for their community.

  

Start with prayer. Pray together. Pray for the mosque community nearest to you. See our resources. We'd love to partner with you in this.

GOD HEARS Prayer Letters

God named Ishmael "God hears" before he was born. Years later, God heard Ishmael’s cry when he was perishing in the desert and opened his mother’s eyes to see a spring of water from which she gave him drink – and he lived!

Islam claims Ishmael as a spiritual forefather. Today, Muslims are perishing and crying out for living water. May that cry pierce the heart of the Church so we will pray to the Father to reveal the well of living water, Jesus, that they might live

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion.

Nelson Mandela

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength and all your mind. And your neighbor as yourself.
