30 Days of prayer for the persecuted and the persecutors in the Muslim world
Ramadan, one of the Five Pillars of Islam, is the holy month of prayer, fasting, and reflecting on God. It begins at sundown April 2 and continues until sunset on May 1. We are going to pray our way through this month for Climbing For Christ members living and working in persecuted Muslim countries. But we’re also going to pray for those who persecute our brothers and sisters in Christ.
