Night of Power - Tuesday, November 9, 2004

The Night of Power takes place on the 27th night of Ramazan. Muslims believe it is the night when God is most accessible to devout worshippers. They believe the angel Gabriel dictated messages to Muhammad that represented the will of God for His people. After Muhammad’s death, these messages were compiled in the Quran. This 27th night is believed to be the night these messages were given to Muhammad. Devout Muslims spend the entire night in a special prayer vigil commemorating this event. Many Muslims believe that on this night God hears prayers directly Himself or through the angel Gabriel. Muslims often have supernatural "encounters" with God on this night through dreams, visions, visitations and healings. These manifestations may continue during the night and weeks which follow.

1. Pray for God to reveal Himself to Muslims through the Holy Spirit during their dreams and visions, demonstrating His love and truth.
2. Pray that their minds and hearts will be open to hearing and responding to the gospel message.
3. Pray for a mighty movement of the Holy Spirit among Muslims during their prayer vigil.
