Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

(van-COO-ver) – In Metro Vancouver there are around 73,000 Muslims. Of these, over a third are of Iranian descent. From mid-March and into April Muslims have been celebrating Ramadan, the most sacred period of the year, in which Muslims fast, believing this will improve their relationship with God. The last ten days of Ramadan, March 31 through April 9, are considered the most important time for intense worship, as it is believed that the Quran was revealed to Mohammed during this time. As Muslims in Vancouver seek God, pray that Jesus would be revealed to them and that many would come to follow the true and living God. Pray for local Christians who are reaching out to Muslims to have many opportunities to share their faith and to lead them to a relationship with Christ.
