Ramadan Starts Saturday; Open Doors Prayer Resources Available

Ramadan Open DoorsOpen Doors USA is launching a prayer campaign during the month-long Muslim observance of Ramadan, and urging Christians to pray for Muslims to encounter Christ and for God’s holiness to pierce the spiritual darkness starting this Saturday.

Ramadan is a highly-anticipated time of the year for many of those adhering to Islam. During the month-long observance, Muslims set aside time to fast and to re-examine their own lives.

“During the month of Ramadan, the most holy month on the Muslim calendar, Open Doors is asking Christians in the West to pray for the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ to be evident in Christians around the world,” shared Open Doors USA Director of Ministries Michele Miller, referencing Galatians 5:22-23.

Each day, from the start of Ramadan on June 28 to the end of Ramadan on July 27, Open Doors will urge Christians to be “one” with persecuted believers in Muslim-dominated countries by praying for them and using Scripture. The ministry is also encouraging Christians in the West to pray for the entire Islamic world during this time.

As part of its efforts, Open Doors is offering free prayer resources for believers to join in praying for persecuted Christians during Ramadan. Included will be information provided about Muslim-dominated countries from Open Doors’ 2014 World Watch List, which highlights the countries where Christians face the most severe persecution.

Participants can sign up to receive these resources by going to lp.opendoorsusa.org/ramadan/2014.
