As we recently wrote, according to the Joshua Project, the world’s population of Muslims is estimated at over 1.8 billion. (With a “B.”) That’s 23.9% of the globe. Out of 3,734 people groups, 3,191 (85.5%) remain unreached with the love and hope of Jesus. Yet a brilliant, beautiful church in the Middle East grows steadily.
And more Muslims have turned to follow Jesus in the past 15 years than in the previous 1400 years combined.
With Ramadan upon us, could we as God’s people lift up the church in the Middle East?
How should we pray for the church in the middle east?
In collaboration with Go. Serve. Love contributor Sarah, we’ve compiled this infographic because of the surpassing need for prayer for Muslims–and the believers who live among them.
Will you pray with us?
A Few ideas:
Choose one day a month to pray, and even fast, for these groups. (You could choose the 18th day of the month to remember the 1.8 billion.)
Choose one prayer request a day, starting again when you’ve prayed through the list.
Choose one day a week to pray for Muslims (grab our free infographic to pray for Muslims around the world).
Pray daily during Ramadan using PrayerCasts’ daily Ramadan prayer videos in your inbox.
Pray using PrayerCast’s weekly prayer videos delivered to your inbox.
Distribute this as a bulletin insert in your church, or make it easily available on a website or in a kiosk. (Link back to our site, if you would.)
Invite your small group to pray with you.
Hang this list inside a cupboard or medicine cabinet, and pray for one request whenever you open it.
