Let’s Pray for Muslims

Posted: July 16, 2012 in Uncategorized

Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. ~Romans 10:1

Here’s some Missional thinking for your Monday. This Friday, July 20, will begin the Muslim holy month of prayer and fasting called Ramadan. The month of Ramadan is a great time to pray for our

Muslim neighbors and those scattered around the globe. We are called to love them and share the Gospel and prayer is a great place to start. There are a number of guides out there to help pray for them. Your first stop should be to check out http://www.30-days.net/.

It has a variety of resources and downloadable calendars to help you pray during this month (including an easy Daily Take for Busy Christians)

This also a great place to begin to learn more about the beliefs of Islam and Muslim peoples. Here is the 30 Days ministry promo video for this year:


My wife and I have loved and labored to Muslims in ministry before we were married and together afterward. So, this is always an easy effort to pray with faces of the lost that we have known and love. For all Christians (if we are honest) it can be a significant challenge to sincerely pray for their salvation. Let us use Romans 10:1-2 as a guide. While the apostle Paul is speaking of his desire to see his Jewish kinsmen saved let this be the cry for our heart. While we  pray for the salvation of Muslims let us pray for our own heart that there is a true desire to be saved. Loving the Muslim should start with prayer an must begin with a sincere heart.

Will you join me and thousands upon thousands around the globe of praying for Muslims?
