Needle and Thread: 

O God, I am Mustafa the tailor and I work at the shop of Muhammad Ali.  The whole day long I sit and pull the needle and thread through the cloth.  O God, you are the needle and I am the thread.  I am attached to you, and I follow you.  When the thread tries to slip away from the needle it becomes tangled up and must be cut so that it can be put back in the right place.  O God, help me to follow you wherever you lead me.  For I am really only Mustafa, the tailor, and I work at the shop of Muhammad Ali on the great square. 

  - Prayer of a Muslim who had come to follow Christ.
