30 Days of Prayer Int'l
Colorado Springs, CO
This year, the prayer focus for the 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World looks at yet another way of exploring the Muslim world – by cities.
Many organisations with a focus on sharing the Good News with Muslims have been directing their efforts towards the populations in cities. In nations with a Muslim majority the strategies for reaching people in cities can be very different than in rural areas. In nations with more diverse populations, cities offer opportunities to reach Muslims, both native and immigrant, in new ways with the gospel. Whether a city is large or small, with a minority or a majority Muslim population, it is strategic for the Church to be active there.
Cities are influential centres for culture, arts, and economic development. Muslims in cities often have social networks that reach far and wide, to places the gospel has not yet been, and where it is hard to go. Focusing ministry resources on urban centres helps more people to be reached, and so focusing our prayers on Muslims in urban centres during this Ramadan will also be a valuable effort.
The goal of this year’s guide is to give you a glimpse into the lives of Muslims living in urban centres all over the world, so that you can pray for them more effectively as they fast and pray over the next 30 days. It will also help you to pray for Christian workers in cities, that their efforts among Muslims will be fruitful. Some cities have many churches and Christian groups serving in them, others have few or none, but all need prayer. This guide will help you see how God is working among Muslims in cities and join Him through your prayers.
Thank you for praying,

A note about the population numbers: the Muslim populations listed in each city are the most accurate we could find documented and are based on the city proper or the metro area, whichever is most relevant to the article.
