Ramadan

"The M. holy month began September 2. I do not know how many here are keeping the fast. However, there is a large banner hanging over the fruit & vegetable market reminding people to fast, more people are going to the mosque for prayers, and more beggars are out on the streets begging (people give more to the poor this month since it brings God's blessing & is required for salvation, according to M. teaching). Pray that God will reveal Himself to these people this month in ways that they can understand. Pray that the poor will not only have full bellies but that they will come to know the One who gives abundant life! Pray for spiritual protection for Christians in Albania & in other M. countries as this month can be a dark one with various spiritual attacks, discouragement, etc. " (borrowed from a friend...LC)
