In observance of Ramadan, one of the five pillars of Islam, Muslims worldwide begin 30 days of fasting (this is total fasting of food and drink, including water, from sunrise to sunset) and prayer to Allah on June 18, 2015. There are approximately 1.6 billion Muslims around the world (about 23% of the world’s population). We invite you to join us over the next 30 days to fast and pray for these seekers that they will find the Giver of life, hope, and peace – Jesus.
Prayer Focus for Thursday, June 18
Pray that during their seeking, Muslims will discover the one true and living God and His love for them. Pray that they will come to know and understand the revelation of Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world, who died for them so that they could be saved from death and condemnation and have eternal life. (John 3:16-17)
