Ramadan

Every year for 30 days, Muslims around the world observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. During this time Muslims abstain from eating and drinking between daylight hours and encourage charitable giving as well as prayer.

Ramadan can often be a time of great difficulty for Christians living in Muslim majority countries, the pressure of hunger or thirst can lead many to frustration. Resentment can also often be driven by Christians not participating in fasting, as well as theological misunderstandings of the Christian faith. It is particularly important for Christians to show compassion and be wise in their actions at this time.

Despite this, Ramadan is a golden time for Christians to show love to their Muslim neighbours. A Christian leader in Egypt said, “During Ramadan, I pray a lot for Muslims, that in their fervent efforts to please Allah they may eventually find the way to the true God. I pray for them as they show sincere desire to get rid of their sins and heavy burdens, that they may have a personal encounter with Jesus and have eternal life.

As Muslims take the next 30 days to examine their lives and seek truth, join us in earnest prayer that the truth of Jesus may be revealed, “I pray for Muslims because I know my Father listens and that he is turning the hearts of many of them back to him.

Pray with us:

  • Pray for the Christians living in majority Muslim countries, pray God would provide wisdom to them at this time in both word and deed.
  • Pray for the protection of Christians living in these places, that God would be watching over them and that this Ramadan would be defined as a time of peace.
  • Pray for the many Muslims seeking truth, pray that the love of Christ would be revealed and many would come to know Him.
