Flags of Turkey and Similar Flags

Flags

The flags of many Muslim countries display the crescent moon and a star. Before Islam began, pagans who worshipped many gods used the crescent moon as a symbol. (Islam is the religion of Muslims.) Muslim Turks who conquered Constantinople also used the moon as their symbol. (Constantinople in now called Istanbul. Istanbul is the capital of Turkey.)

People began to associate the crescent moon with the religion of Islam. Some Muslims today say the moon is not a symbol of Islam. However, the moon and star appear on the flags of many Muslim countries.

Print and color the page of flags here. The background of the flag of Turkey is red and the moon and stars are white. Find the colors of the other flags in the Countries section of this website, in the online CIA Factbook, or in other sources.

Enter the names of the countries in the search box of this site or the tags for this post to find stories that can guide you about how to pray for the country.


Update: Pakistani Parents with Their Children

Pakistan

A post on this site last year told the story of a Christian mother and father who went to prison after their children had a quarrel with Muslim children at school. The Christian parents were falsely accused of blasphemy. Read the story here.

Earlier this year, the court found that the charges against the couple were false. The father had been released on bail earlier, and now the children’s mother is also free!

Please continue to pray for the family and for Christians still in prison in Pakistan. Visit www.callformercy.com to learn about another mother in a Pakistani prison for blasphemy, Asia Bibi.


The Story of Jesus in Pakistan

Pakistan

The Voice of the Martyrs recently distributed booklets that tell the story of Jesus to schoolchildren in Pakistan where most of the people are Muslim.

As you look at the photos of some of the children, pray for all who received the booklets.

Making Bricks in Pakistan

Many Christians in Pakistan are very poor. In many cases they have not been able to get the education they need, and Muslims are often given the best jobs. Christians are forced to take hard, low-paying jobs. Many work at brick factories making bricks for less than 10 dollars a day.

SDOK, The Voice of the Martyrs’ sister mission in the Netherlands, took the video below of a brick maker in Pakistan. Do you think you could do that job all day, six days a week like Christians in Pakistan?
