The 27th day of the month of Ramadan in the Muslim calendar is called the Night of Power. It commemorates the night Muhammad reportedly received the first revelation of the Qur’an from the angel Jibril. On this special night, as Muslims celebrate this event, they feel particularly expectant. Many take time to recite the Qur’an and do special prayers. They believe that this night is better than 1000 months of worship. Some report seeing visions and dreams during this time.
Heavenly Father, your Word tells us that “in these last days [God] has spoken to us by his Son” (Hebrews 1:2). He is the One who died on Calvary to open up the way for us to come into your holy presence. Were it not for the cross, we would have no means to approach you. Thank you.
And that is why I ask you to reveal Jesus Christ to my Muslim friends. Visit them in the power of your Holy Spirit. Convict them of their sin of rejecting Christ and putting their faith in someone else. May they realize that Jesus’ claims are true, that he is Lord, Savior and Son of God. May they accept him in their lives and submit to him.
O Lord Jesus, manifest your glory to Muslims at this time when they are anticipating dreams and visions. Come to them in a supernatural way and speak to their hearts. Meet their needs and calm their fears. Reveal to them your mighty power, your compassionate love, and your forgiving grace. Change their lives. Give them hope and fill them with your Spirit.
In your precious name I pray. Amen.
When he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth (John 16:13, NIV).
