Daily verse

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
— Ephesians 2:8

Thought for the day

Night of Power

Why is this night so special? Muslims believe that on this night particularly God will hear and answer their prayers. It is said that praying through this night is better than praying for a thousand months and that if they pray without rest until dawn God is more likely to forgive their sins.

It’s also called the Night of Destiny. Many Muslims believe that on this night God determines what will happen to them and their family in the coming year, so it’s worth making extra effort in praying.

Many of our Muslim friends will be trying their best to please God and earn his forgiveness and blessing tonight. How we long for them to know that they don’t have to do all these things to be right with God. How we need to pray that God will open their eyes to see the forgiveness that Jesus freely offers.

Prayer for the day

Pray for the Muslims you know, that tonight they would have dreams and visions of Jesus.

Daily action

Explain about the Night of Power to your Christian friends and ask them to pray for Muslims tonight. How about going in pairs and prayer walking your street to pray.
