Today continues the ‘Eid el Fitr celebrations throughout the Muslim world to mark the end of Ramadan 2015. Ramadan has ended, but hopefully our prayers for Muslim peoples and nations will continue.
Yesterday OM published some suggestions on how to continue praying for Muslims:
As we close up the month of prayer for Ramadan, we want to continue to seek God to do great things in the Arab world. We pray that Christians in the Arab world would be able to love their neighbours and that that love would flow from Believers in Jesus to the Muslims around them. Pray that God would work in a supernatural way in the hearts of local Christians and put His love in their hearts. Also pray that God would give them peace each day, rather than a spirit of fear.
And finally, there are Christian workers all over the Middle East and North Africa, sharing the love of Jesus with their Muslim friends. Pray for them. Pray that the Lord would keep them safe, that He would bless their ministries and that many hearts would be transformed by the Gospel. Pray also that God would raise up more workers to minister in this part of the world.
The Mahabba Network also had a helpful graphic with dates of other upcoming Islamic holidays which can be times to offer focused prayer for Muslims:

September 21 – 26 comprising the Pilgrimage to Mecca and the ‘Eid al Adha (the feast of the sacrifice) is an especially significant time.
May the Father continue to reveal Jesus to many Muslims and draw them to Himself. May they seek Jesus and find Him!
