Hello everyone,

I'm Lar-1 (alias Lar2 and originally Lar) and a while back I posted a prayer request regarding two Muslim people that I had witnessed to who I (unwittingly) "turned off" by something I had foolishly said!

I have tried many times to write them subsequent private messages, but they simply will not respond to me anymore - no way, no how!

Anyhow, this prayer request is basically a repeat of a previous prayer request that I had left posted on here for quite a while, but because there has been no change in the situation (i.e. no change that I know of, anyhow), I decided to post this prayer request again.

Please pray that the Lord would soften the hearts of these two Muslim people (who actually *were* seeking the Lord Jesus Christ: as far as I could tell), and please pray that either one of them (or perhaps both of them) would respond to my private messages to them and would write me back.

Thank you very much.

Lar-1 (a.k.a. Lar2 and originally Lar)

Larry,

Your best witness is to live your life in a way that is pleasing to God. Be prepared for those will will reject the truth. Share God’s love and then leave it In God’s Hands. I know, it hurts to see loved ones reject Jesus, but we cannot force them to be saved.

Lar,

You don't want them to respond to you, you want them to respond to the Lord.

Let Him do the talking through His Word.

Send them a Bible verse.

Hello Carol,

I sent one of the two Muslim people that I was trying to witness to a scripture -- just as you had suggested that I do. (I tried, but I could not find the private message "address" for the other Muslim person. [And I don't have their email address].)

Here's the (portion) of a Bible scripture that I shared with them (regarding salvation):

“...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved..." (Acts 16:31) NKJV

Carol, just as you had said to me: it is more important that this Muslim person hears from God (through His Word) than it is that they hear from me!

Hi Lar,

Good job!

Isaiah 55:11 (NASB)
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

Thank you, Carol,

They didn't respond personally to my private message to them, but if they are still receiving private messages on this Christian BBS, then I'm quite sure that they read God's Word (of the "bare-bones" Gospel): shared in the Subject header of my private message to them. .. [Wink]

And God speaking to their heart is what really counts! .. [Big Grin]
