Series: 30 Days of Prayer for Muslims and Christians – 2016 Ramadan
Presented in American Sign Language, no voice interpretation.
The 27th night of Ramadan is called Laylat al-Qadr, which translates as “Great or Valuable Night.” It is also known as the “Night of Power,” the “Valuable Night” and the “Night of the Divine Order.”
Laylat al-Qadr was the first night of the revelation of the Holy Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad by the Archangel Jibrail (Gabriel). Muslims regard this as the most important event in history. They spend much of this night in prayer and worship as prayers offered on this night are thought to be worth all the prayers of one thousand months; many expect on this night they will hear from God in dreams.
Muslims often attest to the role of dreams in their life. Many of Muslim-background believers have reported of a “being of light” who haunts their slumber and left them seeking a higher truth. Many believers have learned how to be a dream catcher for Jesus. They recognize that the Holy Spirit can use extraordinary means to reach Muslims. God through the Holy Spirit seems to be using dreams to convict Muslims of sin, judgment, and righteousness – of their need for Jesus.
– Pray for Muslims on this Night of Power, that God will reveal Himself to them in many ways.
– Pray for dreams of Jesus to encourage Muslims all over the world to find out more about Him.
– Pray for dream catchers – believers who can help Muslims understand who the “being of light” in their dreams is and how He wants them to follow Him.
