Prayer for the Conversion of Muslims Heavenly and Merciful Father, we come to the throne of your grace on behalf

of our Muslim brothers and sisters, We ask that you free them from the spirit of antichrist, We ask that you may open their hearts and minds to the light of truth, and infuse them with the Light of Christ, We ask that you might forgive them for they know not what they do. We ask that they may be open to the saving truths of the Gospel, We ask that they may reject the falsehoods of the Qur'an and of their misdirected prophet, Muhammad, falsehoods which keep them away from you, the one God whom they seek. We ask that you might teach them of the mystery of the one God they seek, the God who is Love. We ask that you might let them see that the one God which they seek is Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We ask that they may learn that there is one God, and that Jesus Christ is his only begotten Son. We ask that you might teach them the mystery of this Jesus Christ, That Jesus is more than mere prophet, but that he is also the Son of God, That Jesus is the one mediator between God and men, That Jesus is also their Redeemer, That Jesus is also their Savior, That Jesus suffered and died on the Cross for them, so that they may be freed from their sins, and That Jesus rose again from the dead, so that they might rise again from the dead. We ask that they might see that God is not reached through law, but by grace and faith. We ask that they may be given the grace of faith to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord, that they might be baptized into His Body the Church, and that they be freed from the sin of Adam and receive the Holy Spirit and sanctifying grace. Send forth your Spirit among the Muslim lands and the nation of Islam, Oh Father God, Fill their hearts, and kindle in them the fire of your love, and they shall be created, and you shall renew the ends of the earth. Allow them to see that there is no east or west in Christ, no Jew or Gentile. Allow them to worship God in spirit and in truth and in freedom. Allow them to see that violence in the service of religion is not willed by God, but is rather a pathology of religion. Allow them and their rulers to see that men and women must be free to accept the religion that is true, and to follow that religion which, in his or her conscience, he or she believes is true. Allow them and their rulers to allow the spread of the Gospel in their lands, even unto the steps of the Ka'aba in Mecca. Allow them and their rulers to stop the persecution of the Church and of Christians in their lands. Allow them to see that faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth. Teach them to pray, as Jesus taught us to pray, so that we might pray the Lord's Prayer together, so that the wolf and lamb feed together, the lion eat straw like the ox, and only the snake shall eat dust (cf. Isaiah 6:25). Allow us to gather together around the Lord's Table, and offer the one true sacrifice of the Lamb of God on the Cross to the one-only God, in which we all may share in peaceful communion. Where we have sinned against them, either in charity or in truth or by the example of our lives, forgive us. Where they have sinned against us, Oh Lord, we ask that we might forgive them their trespasses,

as you have forgiven ours. On their behalf, we ask for the intercession of Mary, mother of all Muslims as she is Mother of all nations and mother of the Church, We ask all these things from you, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ your Son, Who lives reigns with you, in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
