Pray First: Loving Our Muslim Neighbors During Ramadan
The Islamic holy month of Ramadan is a period of 30 days during which Muslims will fast from food and drink during the daylight hours in order to grow closer to God. This year Ramadan will be observed from around March 22 to April 21. There are approximately 1.9 billion Muslims worldwide and 7 million in the United States. In Arkansas, the vast majority come from some of the most unreached peoples and places around the world and intersect with some of our most influential areas of life in the state. One of the greatest impacts we can make among them is to pray for them to find and follow Jesus during this season of spiritual openness. Would you join us in praying first during this time as a way to love our Muslim neighbors? We will equip you with devotional material and prayer prompts each Wednesday during Ramadan via email.
