(Voice of the Persecuted) A few years ago, I saw a picture of folded hands in prayer with a caption below that read, …by the power of God; through weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left, 2 Corithians 6:7
I thought the artist vividly captured the message of 2nd Corinthians 6:7. For surely prayer is our most powerful weapon wielded with the word in advancing kingdom purposes of Christ. James reminds us,
…The prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect, James 5:6
It is said that the two things which endures for eternity are the word of God and the souls of men.
Today, Muslims, worldwide will be celebrating Ramadan. It’s observed as a month of fasting from dawn until sunset to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which are considered mandatory for Muslim believers and the foundation of Muslim life. This year, Ramadan will begin on May 15th and continue to June 14th. For 31 days Muslims will be seeking a spiritual experience with the god of Islam. What they don’t realize is whom they are seeking is the true and living God found in the Bible.
During this time, many thousands of Christians, Jesus followers, around the world will be crying out for their salvation. For Muslims to have an encounter with the true and living Christ. Indeed testimonies verify that Muslims do find Christ in the midst of Ramadan and become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, the true Messiah. John 3:16-18
Praying for 1.8 billion Muslims to experience the love of Christ.
SIMPLE PLAN TO PROFOUNDLY IMPACT THE MUSLIM WORLD
We are bombarded almost daily with news of barbaric acts of terrorism. But if all we know about Islam is what we see on the news, we are missing an incredible story:
The greatest turning of Muslims to Christ in history is happening NOW.
Everywhere Islam exists people are being drawn to Jesus Christ.
This is happening in direct correlation to increased movements of prayer.
God is MOVING and He’s inviting YOU to join Him.
Now is the time to PRAY because Jesus loves and died to save every one of the 1.8 billion Muslims in the world today. Each week will focus on a different region, loving and lifting up representative nations in prayer.
Our prayers do have an impact on the things of eternity and the souls of men and women to find truth in him who is the Living Word. Please join me through this Night Watch to lift your prayers up with mine. That we cry out for the salvation of Muslim souls in darkness and find the light of Jesus. see call information and details below
As ever, I remain your brother and prayer partner in our Lord Jesus. Meet you on the call!
If you are unable to participate on the call, or cannot join us on a particular evening, you can still use the prayer points and pray in your personal prayer closet. The only thing I would urge you is, please do it. Whether you pray privately, in a group, or on our call, please pray for a great harvest of souls during this time of Ramadan.

One small voice cries out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by our God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!
