1 million Muslims reached by united prayers of Christians worldwide as Ramadan ends

The united prayer campaign of Christians worldwide already reached at least a million of the targeted Muslims, according to a report.

CBN News reported that the global prayer effort of the ministries across the United States, Europe, and Middle East already achieved a supernatural reach of at least one million Muslims.

CBN News joined 838 Ministries, Voice of the Martyrs, Iran Alive, Crescent Project, Global Hope, and Isık Abla Ministries in a prayer campaign that started June 26 and ended on Tuesday, July 5. The 10-day ministries held during the last 10 days of Ramadan invoked Christ to visit Muslims worldwide through dreams and visions.

"Ramadan is the perfect season to pray that Muslims will experience the forgiveness of Christ, and even forgiveness from those they persecute," wrote Jason Peter, associate vice president of Connection for The Voice of the Martyrs.

Peter added, "Our Christian family is being persecuted today. We will not let them suffer in silence. We will not let them serve alone."

In an interview with The Christian Post in May, Albert W. Hickman of the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary shared that the number of Muslims converting to Christianity may be "underestimated" because of the difficult task to keep track of these Christian converts with Muslim backgrounds.

He explained that Muslims who leave their Islam faith face more persecution and consequences as compared to Christians who convert to Islam.

"As a result, many Muslim converts to Christianity keep their conversions secret," said Hickman.

One such secret Christian believer in Southeast Asia who granted an interview with Open Doors on conditions of anonymity revealed that he has no choice but to pretend to fast during Ramadan in order to avoid suspicion.

"To do otherwise would result in suspicions and questionings," he said. "Many secret believers like me dare not reveal our faith because if we are caught we will be sent to Islamic rehabilitation centres."
