There are 1.8 billion Muslims in the world and a good majority of them remain unreached by the gospel. During Ramadan, Muslims enter of season of prayer and fasting. This is a great opportunity for the global church to join in prayer that God would open their eyes to his salvation and raise up workers to bring his good news!
