While on a mission trip in France, my team took French church members out to evangelize through asking God to give them specific things and people to look for. When went to an open city square, one of our team members asked a Muslim woman passing by, “Do you have pain in your back?”
She asked how he knew she had a back problem. He said God told him and then asked if our team could pray for her. She said yes, and as she received prayer, all the pain left her back, and she felt the presence of God.
She said, “I’ve never felt God’s presence when I prayed to Allah, and he never healed me.”
She liked the presence she experienced so much that she asked where our team was going to be so she could meet up with us again. The team invited her to a conference we were holding at a church that night. Our time of worship was explosive and wonderful. Toward the end, the worship team started doing a sort of tribal drumming, and the worship leaders began to sing out in other languages given supernaturally by God. The Muslim woman felt the presence of God all over her and afterward went up to the worship leader to ask a question.
“Do you know what you were singing in Arabic?” she asked.
“No,” the leader said. “I was singing in tongues.”
The woman replied, “You were singing, ‘This God is God. This God is the living God.'”
The woman gave her heart to Jesus and said she would like to come back to that church in the future.
