HAJJ PRAYER 2018
On 19-21 August 2018, PTAP is asking for 100,000 people from around the world to join us in Prayer and Fasting for the two million Muslims going on the Hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.
The Hajj is one of the five required acts of service for all Muslims. The city of Mecca is the center of the entire Muslim world. It is the place where the Hajj is performed and the place to where a Muslim directs his daily prayers. Therefore, there are many barriers that prevent the gospel from spreading to these people at this time. However, our God knows no barriers! And so we desire to gather together to fast and pray for this monumental event - for God to do something truly miraculous, something only he can do.
Would you join us in this effort as well as spread the word about this prayer and fasting event?
We have created three core resources for you:
Hajj Prayer guides and a Hajj prayer video (http://prayforap.com/hajj.html) - We created a helpful 4-page prayer guide that has been translated into several languages (including Korean, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, German, and Portugese). There is also a corresponding video to watch.
Please forward the above resources along to your spheres of influence and also feel free to edit as you feel led. And similarly, when it comes to the fasting element, feel free to fast you feel led - one meal, one day, all three days, individually, as a group, etc.
Our one request is that you let us know an estimate of how many people in your spheres of influence prayed and also the country where they prayed during these three days.
