PRAYING DURING RAMADAN
JOIN US AS WE FAST AND PRAY FOR THE MUSLIM WORLD
MAY 5TH - JUNE 4TH
Thank you for your continued prayers for GCM and the work God is doing in the Restricted Middle East.We are honored to have your partnership at this critical time in history. There is a window open right now in many parts of the Middle East- would you join us in asking God for special breakthrough during the month of Ramadan? As you can imagine, during this time the spiritual heaviness in increased in Muslim majority nations as many perform rituals of pain and death, added Islamic prayers, and even terror activity. We especially covet your prayers for us who live in and travel in and out of these parts of the world. For the Holy Spirit to give us a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. (Isaiah 61:3)
week 1: The persian world
MAY 5th - 11th
According to Operation World, three of the top ten fastest growing Evangelical populations are found in the Persian World, and three of the top ten most severely persecuted nations are also among the Persian World.

They would be blessed with provision of land, resources, and all the traveling in and out of these regions. Their enemies will be defeated. The businesses, work endeavors, and all they put their hands to, are blessed. Lord, thank You, that You hold them and keep them in the palm of Your hand, lavishing them with Your loving kindness and mercy. In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.”
week 2: The ARAB world
The Arab World nations are known as the most predominately Muslim nations in the Earth, and the hardest to penetrate. There are 400 unreached people groups in this region with more and more believers being persecuted, fleeing, or being forced out of these areas every day. This week we want to contend for God’s light to shine in the dark places and for the expansion of GCM’s network to spread across these lands.

1. South & South East Asia totaling 750 million,
2. Indonesia 200 million,
3. China 50 million, and
4. Europe 44 million.
When we see the Muslim population increasing throughout the West, for example, the 2.5 million in the United States, we see an opportunity to reach those that are no longer in the difficult to reach regions. We can now reach Muslims even easier today because the refugee crisis is bringing them to us.
