3) Ramadan Prayer Focus

muslim prayerMuslims around the world are getting ready for the annual Ramadan, Islam’s holiest month (June 18 to July 17). Christians are gearing up as well for the “30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World,” an international movement that began in 1993.

11) 30 Days Prayer For Muslims For Children And Families

Family PrayerJesus teaches us to love our neighbors and to pray for our enemies. For many of us, Muslims are neighbors we hardly know. Others see them only as enemies and terrorists. But there is a great way to learn to love Muslims like Jesus does. Ramadan is June 18th to July 17th. Perhaps there’s no better way to experience Ramadan than praying together for Muslims with the children in our household. That’s why we’re excited about the new 30-Days-of-Prayer-Booklet made ‘Just for Kids.’ The booklet would work for family devotions as well as children’s church since it offers to many creative prayer ideas.

(Thanks for pointing us to them in the comments box following our request for input in the last edition, Roger.)
