Ramadan Prayer Effort

30 days of prayer for the Muslim world

What are we doing for 30 days?

There are many voices that have had the floor in the discussion of the Muslim world. Some of those voices have incited fear, anger, and even hatred. Instead, we are calling on the church to engage in prayer for our 1.8 billion Muslim neighbors during the most important Islamic month of religious observation — Ramadan, a time of the year when Muslims are much more deeply aware of spiritual matters.

Join us in a 30-day prayer effort April 1st – 30th, 2022 where you will learn more about Muslim cultures around the world, be challenged to consider the needs of the people you will read about, and then discover your calling as a follower of Christ to love them and share the good news of salvation with them.

Pray Daily

Pray for 10 minutes a day for 30 days at 10:30am. In January, we were encouraged to download the Joshua Project app to begin praying for unreached people groups around the world. Not all the people groups highlighted in the app will be Muslim, but use this time to form a habit to continue praying for unreached and unengaged people groups around the world for the rest of the year. If you have already downloaded the app and want to pray for additional people groups contact our Mobilization Pastor, Richard McKay, rmckay@fielder.org, for the 30 days of Prayer for the Muslim World booklet (link to booklet below – adult & kid versions) that will lead you to pray for 30 different Muslim people groups that are currently living in the United States.

Fast Weekly

Join us as we fast for 24-hours from Tuesday evening to Wednesday evening crying out to the Lord to draw Muslims all around the world to Himself. Every Wednesday evening (starting Wednesday, April 6) at the Pioneer Campus in room F115 at 6:30pm we will pray together before breaking our fast. There will also be a group gathering on Sunday mornings for prayer during these 30 days in the same room at 9:30 am.

Night of Power

Join us for a prayer gathering on April 28th

The last ten days of Ramadan are considered highly blessed, especially the 27th night which is called laylat al-qadr – the “Night of Power,” or the “Night of Destiny.” It is believed that on this night the prophet Muhammed received the first revelation of the Qur’an. Muslims believe that anything done for Allah during this night earns exponentially more good works to tip the scale in their favor for eternity. Because of this belief, this is the night when the most prayers are recited, the Qur’an is most rigorously read, and the mosques are filled the most.

Christians and missionaries around the world will also pray on this night that those who are seeking to know God would have dreams and visions seek after Jesus the Messiah. Let’s utilize this time to gather and pray that God would truly reveal himself. For this reason, we will be hosting a virtual prayer effort on April 28th.
