Bosniaks are typically characterized by their tie to the Bosnian historical region, traditional adherence to Islam, and common culture and language. Once spread throughout the regions they inhabited, various instances of ethnic cleansing and genocide have had a tremendous effect on the territorial distribution of their population. Partially due to this, a notable Bosniak Diaspora exists in a number of countries.
The Bosniaks have experienced much harm over many years from those who have called themselves Christians. This isn't easy to overcome.
Christians need to build friendships with the Bosniaks, serving their physical and material needs as that is possible.
"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!" Revelation 7:9-10
Pray that many members of this people group will be part of the vast crowd praising God in heaven.
There are a few followers of Christ among the Bosniaks. Pray they will be bold in their witness for Christ, yet loving and tactful. Pray they will live holy lives, zealous to know and serve Jesus Christ. Pray the Bosniak people will understand that Jesus desires to bless their families and communities. Pray that the Bosniaks will hunger to find out more about Jesus (whom Muslims call Isa al-Masih), referred to in the Koran. Pray the Lord will open their eyes to his true nature, and will draw many Bosniaks to himself.
