Christians focus on the Muslim world

By August 22, 2006

International (MNN) — For the 15th year in a row, Youth with a Mission (or YWAM) and is helping Christians focus prayer on the Muslim world.

The 30 Days Muslim Prayer Focus coincides with Islam’s holy month of prayer and fasting known as Ramadan. This year’s Prayer Focus begins September 24 and continues through October 23. During that time, Christians are called upon to make a concerted but respectful effort to learn about, pray for and reach out to Muslim neighbors — across the street and around the world.

YWAM has again produced a new informative prayer guide to help Christians understand and effectively pray for the Muslim world.

Following the 9/11 tragedy and the problems taking place in the Middle East, the 30 Days Muslim Prayer Guide is a proven tool to help Christians resist the temptation of being caught up in generalizations, anger, or fear toward all Muslims. It also provides Christians a way to feel part of the Great Commission and remember those who are reaching out to the Islamic World. The 52 page booklet includes daily readings and prayer points. It’s a great resource for individuals, prayer groups, Sunday School, ministry or congregations.

Patrick Johnstone, the author of Operation World, says “This 30-day prayer emphasis has been a remarkable global effort to focus Christians on prayer for the spiritual needs of Muslims. Is it surprising, then, during the last 15 years there has been a corresponding rise in the number of Muslims turning to Christ? May God call many more as intercessors-priests to change our world and extend His kingdom.”
