You're Invited! Praying for Ramadan

Lorna Johnston / Monday, April 20, 2020

You’re Invited! 

Last year my husband and I went to a 3-day prayer gathering—with 700 other people. There was something amazingly powerful and encouraging about being part of such a large community, all focused together to seek God’s heart for lost people. 

Think how amazing it would be to be part of a 30-day prayer movement with MILLIONS of people—one that you could join every year! Some in fact have been joining this prayer movement for 27 years, and the results have been astonishing! 

An Invitation to Pray

You're invited!

This year it’s being held from April 24-May 23 - Ramadan.  

Ramadan is the Islamic month of fasting—a season where Muslims are more spiritually alert and diligent. It is also the month, where for 27 years Christians around the world have prayedpersistentlythat as Muslims practice the rituals of their faith, they would come into a living relationship with Jesus Christ the Messiah. If you want to learn more about Ramadanwatch this video. 

Join us? 

You don’t have to leave your home, (which is great in a Covid-19 restricted world).

You don’t need any special preparation or training, just a willing heart to commit to lovingly pray for people you may never meet.  

If you join in, your prayers, along with our global family, will change the course of history. Don’t believe me—read David Garrison’s book, ‘A Wind in the House of Islam’  

3 Tools to Join the Movement

Here are 3 tools you can use to join the pray movement. 

1. Loving Muslims Together - A Daily Prayer Booklet

A first-ever Canadian daily prayer booklet with short introductions and prayer points that focus on the real needs of our Muslim neighbours right here

They will be posted daily during Ramadan here: Praying During Ramadan You can subscribe for a daily email prayer reminder there. Or, if you prefer, you can download and print the free booklet.

2. 30 Days of Prayer for The Muslim World

prayer guide from 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World that focuses each day on a different region, ethnic group, or issue. You can purchase a digital version here: 30 Days Global Store. Or you can download the prayer app to receive daily reminders: 30 Days of Prayer Prayer App. 

3. Prayer Videos from Prayercast

You can find Prayer videos focused on different heart issues for Muslims from Prayercast here: Prayercast Love Muslims Videos.

Join in!

Only history will show what happens as we pray. Scripture tells us that our prayers are gathered into golden bowls, which are offered as worship to the Lamb that was slain. (Revelation 5:8, 8:3-4). 

Add your prayers to the bowls.

Pray for breakthroughs in the Muslim world.

Pray for your neighbor! 

You’re invited!
