Since 2012, Best Current News has presented articles and graphics along with suggested prayer points during the Islamic month of Ramadan. Because the month is based on the lunar calendar, the dates change each year by approximately 11 days. This year Ramadan begins on Saturday, April 2, 2022.
After over two years of worldwide turmoil marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, the ensuing lockdowns, supply shortages, inflation, war, and an obvious and concerning moral decline in our nations, you may wonder if Islam still matters. We believe that within the next 30 days, you will realize that although Islam has not been in the headlines, it is still making significant advances in the world and is a topic that needs the continued prayer of Christians.
Many people are overwhelmed with the issues in their own lives. Our e-mail inboxes overflow with a constant barrage of bad news, and the thought of one more e-mail to read can seem onerous. Because the number of emails received can be overwhelming, this year we are streamlining our Ramadan series. Instead of sending daily information, for the next 30-days we will be sending an e-mail 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). We invite you to join with us as we present current updates and pertinent information to give you a renewed basis for prayer.
Our prayer for this first day of Ramadan, 2022:
John 6:44 declares that “No one can come to Jesus unless the Father who sent Jesus draws him …” Father, we ask during this Ramadan season that you look at the hearts of every Muslim around the world and draw them to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We Take Up the Rod of Heaven’s Authority:
The power of the Word of God is greater than any stronghold over the life of an unbeliever. This day we declare that the truth of God’s love, joy, peace, goodness, and faithfulness is being stirred and desired in the hearts of Muslims around the world, calling them to true salvation in Christ.
