[2024 Ramadan Day 25] Saudi Arabia, where Jesus will be King


Ramadan is considered the holiest month by 1.9 billion Muslims around the world, It's a period of spiritual solidarity while fasting during the day when the sun is up, and keeping the time of prayer five times a day. During this period, many Muslims visit the holy pilgrimage of Islam, Mecca and Medina, which are their lifelong wishes, and look forward to spiritual things that come close to God. But the people of Saudi Arabia, where the holy pilgrimage of Islam is located, want to avoid this complicated period of pilgrimage, and if you ask what pilgrims was like, you'll hear nothing but ‘it was peace’. Rather than seeking spiritual things, we see Ramadan turning into a holiday for family gatherings, relationships, and relaxation. Additionally, news and newspapers are focusing on organizing special planned dramas and entertainment programs for families, rather than screening programs or articles on how to keep spiritual solidarity and concentrate during Ramadan. After 2017, Vision 2030 national reformation, Many of Saudi Arabia's souls quickly fell into the secularism and pleasure, weakening the identity of Islam, so we are witnessing a tremendous revival and history of salvation, which has not been seen in the post-Islamic history. Hallelujah!

However, Ramadan is still a period of time for Muslims to re-affirm their faith and identity in their god and religion, and a period where it gives them enormous solidarity within them. Unlike other Muslim regions, Saudi Arabia still strictly keeping fasting hours. They are not allowed to eat food during fasting hours in public places and all restaurants are closed until the time they break their fast. And every evening, many people gather at the temple to participate in the "Taraweeh," which can be called a spiritual revival, and seek God's favor and mercy.


Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Mark 6:16-19)

In the midst of tension and social pressure during Ramadan, the local Christians and all the underground churches will spring up like new shoots to overcome the gates of Hades by faith, we desire to see the history of spiritual revival and salvation through key of heaven and heavenly powers. When the global churches join together in a spiritual war with Saudi Arabia, God will allow us to see the history of light that will pierce the darkness!

[Today’s Prayer]

1. Almighty living God! Cut off all Islamic and secular powers in Saudi Arabia. Let the Muslims of Saudi Arabia see the vainness of Islam's futile religious ceremony during Ramadan and find Jesus, who is the truth. You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God! Please plant your church upon our and all the churches in Saudi Arabia’s confession, and save the souls! The Saudi church will rise!

2. God, the Saudi Church is the church that will lead two billion Muslims to Jesus! Just like the word Isaiah 21:14 is prophecy for Arabia, Saudi Arabia churches will rise as the ones who bring water for the thirsty and bring food for the fugitives!

Let Jesus' missionary disciples in the holy land of Islam, carry the gospel among the two billion Muslims! So when great number of Gentiles return, and prepare the return of the Lord!
