Ramadan 2009 / 1430: August 22 - September 20
Welcome to the 18th Anniversary of the 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World.
This year we have a special focus on the family of Mohammed. We hope you will gain insight into the life and family of this man who continues to greatly influence Muslims. In addition, we focus much of our prayer efforts on some of the most remote and largely unreached Muslim peoples. God has not forgotten them. God is awesome and He knows the hairs on the head of every individual.
The email edition is an extract of the main booklet and a link is provided each day to the main article. The idea is to give you a gist of the prayer material so you can be praying in unity with the rest of the world. The email is sent one day early to try to include most time zones.
Please use the Bible as much as possible in prayer. We have included various Bible references you can meditate on and proclaim. Ask God to inspire your prayers. That will build your faith and God can give you new insights for prayer based on His Word.
I prayed throughout Ramadan using your booklet for the first time last year, 5 times a day with my Muslim friend Hameed. My prayer was Hameed would give his life to Jesus before Ramadan 2009. On 26 July he gave his life to the Lord! I am speechless with gratitude over what the Lord has done. I will be praying for his family and other Muslim friends this year!
Praise God. Let us believe together. Surely there has never been a more significant if not urgent need to pray Muslims into the Kingdom of God as right now.
God bless you, we appreciate your commitment to pray. It is not easy to get committed pray-ers these days, so you are all the more appreciated.
Thank you. We look forward to praying with you,
Ron and the whole 30-Days International Team
Last year, I reposted daily prayer reminders sent out by the 30-days team on our blogs to encourage others to join with us in praying throughout the month of Ramadan. We received this letter, reminding us that Ramadan begins in just a few days, and the testimony really touched my heart... by God's grace, I want to take the time to pray 5 times daily this year throughout the month of fasting... that God would move mightily throughout the world, but that He would, in particular, impact the hearts and lives of a few very specific friends. Will you join with us? If you are praying with us, please leave a comment to let us know. God will bless!
