Praying Through Ramadan – July 20, 2012

Our Family is joining  Open Doors in their initiative to Pray through Ramadan.

Open Doors  “works in the world's most oppressive countries, strengthening Christians to stand strong in the face of persecution and equipping them to shine Christ's light in these dark places.”

Excerpt from Open Doors Email about Praying Through Ramada:

Beginning this week on July 20, and continuing for 30 days, Muslims around the globe will fast and pray from sunrise to sunset. Ramadan is the holiest time for a Muslim…and the most challenging for Christians.

Open Doors is calling on Christians worldwide to unite in prayer for our brothers and sisters living in Islamic-dominated countries; praying for strength when harassed, for comfort if fearful, but most importantly to be emboldened to share the Gospel when possible.

But this is also one of the most powerful opportunities to pray for Muslims as well. As they seek God during this time, we can pray that they find Jesus!

Here is what you can do!

·         Unite and Pray

·         Get Others to Pray

Visit the Open Doors Website, to request a Prayer Calendar for this initiative.

July 20 Pray for:

·         Christians worldwide understand their lack of righteousness

·         Christians openly confess their sins

·         The Holy Spirit to fill Christians so that they shine in the darkness around them, especially to Muslims in their communities.
