IN BRIEF: What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is a special month for Muslims when they fast from dawn to sunset.

The pace of life changes during Ramadan, especially in the Arab world. Restaurants and coffee shops remain closed until sunset, there is a lot of eating and visiting at night and people are typically sleepy or asleep during the day.

Often work slows down considerably, providing opportunities for reflection and discussion.

The Bible says

“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Luke 10:22 (NIV) READ LUKE 10:22 VERSE IN CONTEXT (external site)*

Order a prayer guide

Why not order 30 DAYS OF PRAYER guide and join the prayer movement for Muslims to encounter Christ this Ramadan? This is an ideal resource to inform and inspire your church and prayer group about ministry to Muslims. We still have a few copies available.

Prayer points

As Ramadan begins (6 June), pray for those who are seeking God to have a revelation of Jesus, the Messiah and Son of God. May they come to know the hope and forgiveness found only in the Saviour.

Pray for believers to have many natural opportunities for spiritual conversations with Muslim friends, colleagues and neighbours.

Ask the Lord to open people’s eyes and hearts to the truth, and come to embrace the love of their Heavenly Father.
