This past Monday, Muslims began their month of fasting during the daylight hours. The month of Ramadan falls from May 6 to June 4 this year, followed by a celebration, Eid al-Fitr on June 5, when friends and family will gather and celebrate the end of Ramadan.
Ramadan, an ideal time to pray for Muslims around the world, also gives you an opportunity to tell Muslims you are praying for them. Many will be surprised and pleased that you know about their practices.
These resources equip you to have an impact on Muslims through prayer and help you grow in your knowledge of them:
- Educate yourself about Islam and Muslims here at bible.org: You Asked For It: Understanding Islam.
- Lift up Muslims around the world daily during Ramadan using this Muslim World Prayer Guide.
- Continue to pray for Muslims year round: Beyond Ramadan: Four Ways to Pray for Muslims Year-Round.
- Consider gathering a group of Muslim and Christian women together for friendship, fellowship and sharing of your faith. Read about one such group: Sitting at the Table: Connecting Christians and Muslims.
Join me this month in investing regular prayer on behalf of Muslims around the world.
