The Night of Power 2021

What is the Night of Power?

For Muslims, the lunar month of Ramadan involves 30 days of fasting from sunrise to sunset. About the 27th day (this year the 8th or 9th May), they remember the Night of Power — Laylat al-Qadr — when many Muslims believe Muhammad received his first revelation. The Qu’ran describes this night as “better than a thousand months” and many believe angels descend to help answer prayers. They believe their prayers have extra value and more chance of being answered and will spend the entire night praying and seeking blessing from God.

Over the years, this has been a night when Muslims, who are very open to receiving revelation from God at this time, have had visions or dreams concerning Christ. Whilst these do not usually lead to instant acceptance and understanding of the gospel, it often causes them to question or directs them to someone who shares the gospel with them.

Praying for Muslims

On the evening of Saturday 8th May, we will be hosting a virtual prayer meeting on the Night of Power. We’ll be praying for:

  • Unreached people groups in North Africa
  • Believers across the Middle East
  • Mission workers in the UK
