Ramadan runs from July 20th through August 18th, this year. Muslims around the world are fasting from all food and liquid during daylight hours, and then eating in the evenings. They are hoping Allah hears and answers their prayers. But they are lost. Would you join me in praying for the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims during this Ramadan season that they find the One True God?
Please pray that our Father in heaven opens their eyes and their hearts to the truth that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that no one can come into a personal relationship with the Father except through Him (John 14:6). Please pray that God shows His amazing grace and unconditional love and draws many Muslims out of Islam and into salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” (I John 5:1-5).
Millions of Muslims have come to Christ in the past three decades. Let’s pray that more find the Savior this year. Here’s a link to more suggestions of how to pray for Muslims — and for the persecuted Christians living in the Islamic world — this Ramadan.
