A Muslim Man and Daughter Healed

“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

— Ephesians 6:12

The aim of our ministry to the Muslim world is for men, women and families to fall in love with God.

So often, this process begins as a GCM disciple maker prays, asking God to direct them to the person He wants to reach. The Spirit then gives the disciple maker an insight to share with that person, or a relevant story from the Bible that raises the person’s interest in learning more about God. This process can be stated like this: Prayer + Holy Spirit + Scripture = Heart Open to God

The testimonies we share with you are great examples of this process in action. It’s our blessing to share another powerful testimony with you. We pray that it will encourage you in your commitment to stand alongside GCM disciple makers in reaching Muslims for Christ!


In a community gathering, Ahmad, a CGM disciple maker asked God to show him who to talk with. When a man stood to make a statement, Ahmad felt the Holy Spirit’s prompting to pray for the man and his family.

Afterward, Ahmad approached the man and began a conversation with him. He told the man that God had prompted him to pray for him and his family, even before they met. It is not uncommon for Middle Easterners to share openly, and the man said that he and his daughter suffered from epileptic seizures. He shared that his father was an Islamic exorcist and that he had brought a female spirit into the man’s life who tells him what to do. He said that the spirit told him to divorce his wife. Even more, the man said that every night, the spirit beats him and causes his daughter to shake violently in her sleep. He even showed Ahmad the marks on his body from the nightly beatings.

Ahmad then shared with the man that he had experienced God in a powerful way in his own life and that he knew God cared for this man. He said to the man, “I can show you how powerful God is: Tonight, you will have a restful night of sleep.”

Four days later, when Ahmad and the man met again, the man exclaimed, “My daughter and I have been sleeping every night, and I have no bruises. I still see a spirit trying to attack, but I have no bruises!”

“Why do you think God sent me to you?” Ahmad asked the man. “I don’t know,” he responded. Ahmad then said, “It is because God wants to heal your whole family together.”

Today, the man and his family are involved in a Discovery Bible Study group, learning about the true God who so powerfully delivered them from evil!

Thank you again for supporting GCM disciple makers like Ahmad as they faithfully pray for and follow the Spirit’s leading during the thousands of conversations they have with Muslims each year.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
