The Night of Power

Friday, May 31, 2019

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 Quran from the angel Jibril. On this particular night, as Muslims celebrate this event, they feel very expectant. Many take time to recite the Quran 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.

In a few days, Muslims will break their month-long fast of Ramadan.

Prayer

O Source of all blessing, mercy and grace, our Father in heaven, we adore and praise you. In Moses’ time, you spoke from heaven and gave your people fair rules and commands and good instructions and teachings (Nehemiah 9:13). And you continued to send them prophets to help and guide them.

Your Word tells us that finally in these last days you have spoken to us through Jesus Christ, your Son (Hebrews 1:2). He is the One who died on Calvary to forgive our sin, adopt us into your family, and open up the way for us to come into your holy presence. Without the cross, we would have no other means to approach you. Thank you.

My Ftaher, I ask you to reveal Christ to my Muslim friends. Visit them in the power of your Holy Spirit. Convict them for their sin of rejecting your Son 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 expecting 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. Amen.

Promise

When he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth (John 16:13, NIV).
