Day 26: Syria
Adults and children in Syria have witnessed the unthinkable. Many children have lost the carefree childhood they once had and are missing out on school because they need to work to feed their families. Boys and girls are growing up without mothers and fathers. Imagine what living like this for years does to a person! Don’t let this dishearten you, though. Use the compassion you feel to fuel your prayers, and be encouraged by the truth of Scripture. Let us join this significant time of prayer and pray specifically for Syrians who have completely lost hope. Pray that in their despair they would seek the Lord God and take their needs to Him. Pray that they would cry out to Him, and that He would meet them in a powerful way.
“Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that He has done, His miracles and the judgments He uttered…”(1 Chronicles 16:11-12; ESV).

Day 27: The Night of Power
The 27th day of Ramadan is the holiest day of Ramadan: The Night of Power or Destiny. Muslims believe that the Qu’ran was first revealed to Mohammad during the last week of Ramadan. Therefore, millions of Muslims around the world will be praying in mosques all night long for Allah’s special favour, they pray extra prayers; they recite more of the Qu’ran, they make special requests and they believe that their sins can be forgiven on this night. O Lord of all power and might, on this night of power, would You reveal Yourself in dreams and visions to the millions of Muslims who will be praying and seeking Allah. They want to experience Your power but are looking in the wrong places. Reveal Yourself to them in dreams and visions of Jesus. Lead them to Christian believers and to the Bible that can explain what they see. Show Yourself as the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25). Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. (Psalm 147:5).

Day 28: Pashtun in India
The Pashtun are not a single tribe, but a collection of many tribes. Though they are very dedicated to their religious beliefs, they are also fond of pleasure. The Pashtun fear that Christianity will turn individuals from their communities and bring shame upon their family. Pray for the daftari (men well respected in tribal councils and the greater Pashtun society) to embrace the gospel and open the way for many Pashtun households and communities to hear God’s Word and experience His blessing.

Day 29: Five reasons
Studies show that the five main reasons why Muslims become followers of Jesus are: (1.) Through dreams and visions (2.) Contact with Christians that showed them the love of Jesus. (3.) Reading the Bible. (4.) Christians that helped the poor and needy when they had social and practical needs. (5.) Different forms of electronic media (JESUS Film, SD cards, Internet, Facebook, chat rooms, Internet courses, etc.). Pray for dreams and visions of Jesus to continue. Ask that Christians will demonstrate the love of God to them. Pray that Christians will reach out to help to meet the needs of Muslims practically. Ask for effective ways to reach Muslims through electronic media.

Day 30: End of Ramadan 2019
Today is the last day of Ramadan. Many Muslims will be strengthened by the 30-day fast, but others will be disillusioned by it. Some Muslims will seek a deeper relationship with God at this time, but many will end the fast still feeling dry spiritually. Pray that they will encounter Christians reaching out to them in love and testifying about their personal encounters with Jesus Christ.
