This information was taken from a blog I found on Gospel.com, a website of ministries dedicated to the advancement of the gospel of Jesus.
Gospel.com seems to capture the essence of the gospel, and the truth that Jesus is not to revolve around our ministry, but that our ministry is to revolve around Jesus. He is the centerpiece, he is the one we want people to look at, and not us. Check out Gospel.com.
A Christian prayer guide… for Ramadan
Friday, August 21st, 2009
Ramadan begins tomorrow—are you ready?
Ramadan is, of course, an Islamic tradition, not a Christian one. For Muslims, it’s a month-long period of fasting and prayer. But some Christians are suggesting that we use the month of Ramadan as a time of special prayer for Muslims around the world.
Arab World Ministries has put together daily Ramadan prayer points for Christians, each of which highlights a specific prayer need “for Muslims, Muslim background believers or Christian workers based in the Arab world.” If you’d like to participate, just check back each day over the next month for a daily prayer point.
Mission Network News is also running a story about Ramadan if you’d like more background about it. If you know of other Christians or ministries who are using the month of Ramadan as an opportunity to pray for Muslims and Christians in the Arab world, please leave a comment below!
