Idu’l Fitr indicates the end of the fast of the Islamic month of Ramadan. It is a time of celebration, joy and gratitude. The preparations for the festival start at the beginning of Ramadan. When the day finally comes and the fast is over, children received many gifts and festivities where festival items and traditional food is sold. Many people attend religious ceremonies and visit family and friends. This is one of the festivals in the Muslim calendar they are most looking forward to. Please pray that Christians today will have God-given opportunities to witness to Muslims of their big ‘Gift of Life’ – our Lord Jesus Christ. Pray that many will become interested and curious about him.
PRAY: We know that purification rituals can cleanse the body, but they cannot cleanse the heart. Today, please that the Holy Spirit would call the seeking hearts of Muslims worldwide to genuine repentance and that they would respond to His call. Pray that Muslims would truly understand that Jesus is the only way to the Father and the only way their hearts can be cleansed and their sins forgiven. Pray John 1:29; Acts 10:43 and Hebrews 1:3.
