We have several local Mahabba prayer groups throughout Belgium. More will be starting soon. There are already many like-minded Christians meeting together to pray regularly for their Muslim friends. Groups typically meet once a month, and are seeking to be an active witness in their local area.


If there is no group in your area or nearby, but you want to gather people to pray for Muslims, we want to hear from you!

We are able to support and advise you as you get up and running as the coordinator of a local Mahabba prayer group. We try to assign a specialist with training in cross cultural communication to every Mahabba group. As well as providing specific knowledge of Muslim culture and identity, this person can also help you get the group established. 

Three easy steps

It’s very easy, so don’t worry! We’ve listed three simple steps below that we recommend you take.



  • Contact us and we’ll put you in touch with a nearby specialist
  • He/she will then help you take the next steps to start a local Mahabba prayer group and support you as it develops and grows



  • Gather people into your local Mahabba prayer group
  • This relies on God, so it has to begin and be sustained by, persistent prayer
  • Don’t worry if it starts with only a few people
  • Keep making the group known and invite new people to join you
  • It is better to have a few committed people then many who are not

 Get support

  • Seek to get the backing of local church leaders
  • Invite people from different local churches to participate
  • Mahabba works best as an activity of the wider church in your area, not only your local church

Build team

  • Designate someone, or better two or three people to coordinate the prayer meetings and other activities that emerge later from the prayer group

Be regular

  • Set a regular time to meet as a local Mahabba prayer group
  • Some Mahabba groups meet weekly, some monthly
  • The frequency is up to you, but it’s good to be persistent in prayer
  • There is no set way of praying, but again there are a few guidelines:
    1. We pray with the motivation of the love of God for Muslims
    2. Pray for everyday church member’s contacts
    3. Pray for the work among Muslims in the local area
    4. Pray for national and international prayer needs
