Web prayer resources available to pray for Muslims during Ramadan July 9-August 7

The Five Pillars of Islam are the framework of the Muslim life: faith, prayer, concern for the needy, self-purification, and the pilgrimage to Mecca for those who are able. Ramadan (the month of self-purification) July 9 through August 7 this year. All Muslims will fast from the first light of day until sundown, abstaining from food, drink, and sexual relations, all in an effort to please Allah.

As you pray for Muslims, use the Scriptures as much as possible. This will build your faith, and God can give you new insights for prayer based on His Word. Pray for God’s sovereign intervention in the lives of Muslims during a time of the year when many of them are much more deeply aware of spiritual matters. It’s also a great opportunity for Christians to learn about and reach out to Muslim neighbors – across the street and around the world. 

  • Pray for Christ-followers to seek God’s wisdom and leading as to how to interact with Muslims (Prov. 13:14).
  • Pray that God will protect the Christ- followers in the Muslim world who are persecuted (Matt. 5:10).
  • Pray for supernatural interventions from God, that Muslims will have dreams and visions about Jesus as the way, truth and life (John 14:6).
  • Pray for more opportunities for Christ-followers to get the available Scriptures and literature into the right hands (Isa. 52:7).
  • Thank Jesus Messiah that it is through His blood that sins can be forgiven. Pray that Muslims would understand that Jesus is the only way to the Father so that sins can be forgiven. Pray John 1:29, Acts 10:43 and Heb. 1:3.

Consider using the following prayer guides:
