30 DAYS of PRAYER for SUDAN - RAMADAN 2020 Update (Day 1 - 16)


30 DAYS of PRAYER for SUDAN - RAMADAN 2020 Update (Day 1 - 16)

Day 1
Muslims around the world are in 30 days of Ramadan. Our focus will be Sudan and her Neighbours. Fasting is one often Five Pillars of Islam. Jesus said "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

How Can We Pray?
Let us pray that as they fast, they will find the only One who can fill their hunger, that God will reveal Himself to them as the only One who can take away their sin and give them what they yearn to find: Salvation. See

Day 2
Sudan has one of the largest Sufi communities in the world. Sufism is a branch of Islam often seen as mystical due to its followers’ pursuit of a personal, inner path to God. What unites each Sufi order is the belief that a path to God can be found through dhikr, absolute absorption in worship during which prayers, dances and spins may be repeated with enough fervour to induce a trance. Omdurman, in Khartoum, is the centre of this belief. John 15:26.

How Can We Pray?
Pray that the Spirit of Truth will prevail and break through into the hearts and lives of those who are involved in this occult practice.

Day 3
The Tijaniyyah originated in the 1780s in what is now Algeria, as a reaction to the dominant Muslim order, the Qadiriyyah, which was conservative and fundamentalist in its view of Islam. Tijanis were more focused on social reform and a grassroots revival of Islam with an emphasis on developing culture and education.

Sufi orders, or tariqas, are like different paths to spiritual enlightenment within the mystical practice of Islam known as Sufism. The Tijaniyyah order is most widespread across West Africa, particularly in Senegal, The Gambia, Mauritania, Mali, Guinea, Niger, Chad, Ghana, Northern and South-western Nigeria and some parts of Sudan. They are an exclusive order: Tijanis cannot belong to any other Sufi orders. Chanting and the repetition of holy phrases is an important practice for them. They have formulas to repeat daily, both individually and at regular communal gatherings. These include the name of God, short prayers and other phrases aimed at turning their focus towards God.

How Can We Pray?
The Tijaniyyah movement is most active in a region that has thousands of unreached Muslim people groups. Pray for movements to Christ that are happening among some of these groups and for Christians who work among them.
Psalm 136 is a repetitive Psalm that reminds us of God’s unfailing love and grace. Use this Psalm to pray for the Tijaniyyah people.

Day 4
The Nile-Nubians in Egypt and Sudan
One of the oldest known civilizations, by the 6th century A.D. the Nubians had established three kingdoms in the Nile Valley; all three embraced Christianity, making it one of the earliest African churches. The spread of Islam in the 13th century, gradually led to its demise and today there are few Nubian Christians.

Of the two million Nubian people, 99% follow Sunni Islam. However, many are attracted to Sufism, as they try to experience God more deeply. Some Sufi concepts make them more receptive to the gospel.

High unemployment, partly caused by the building of the Aswan High Dam (completed in 1970 and inaugurated the following year), sent thousands of Nubian men to the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia as laborers, to provide for their families back home. Many have come under the influence of conservative Wahhabi Islam there. This influence has led to changes in their religious practice, behaviour and dress which they take back to their homeland, also creating more resistance to Christianity.

How Can We Pray?

Pray Acts 22:14-15 for the Nubians, that they will return to their ancestral faith and establish new churches.

Pray for those Nubians under the influence of Sufism and Wahhabism, that they will have true encounters with Jesus.

Pray for wisdom for the growing number of Christian workers engaged in ministry among the Nubians.

Day 5
Ramadan is the holiest month of the Islamic year. While those of us who are followers of Yeshua/Jesus likely pay little to no attention to this Islamic observance aside from its mention in the news, it creates a unique reminder for Christian believers to pray for our Muslim brothers and sisters. As Christians, we have a serious responsibility to share the Gospel with others. “For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth’.” Acts 13:47

Having Muslim brothers and sisters in our communities provides an open door for building relationships and having discussions about our faith.

How Can We Pray?
Pray for opportunities to share your faith and the wisdom to recognize them when they (opportunities) appear. God wants ‘all men to be saved’ and He will take your requests for opportunities seriously. Amen. Thank you all. See

Day 6
Wahhabism is a religious revivalist movement that works to bring Muslims back from what it believes are foreign accretions that have corrupted Islam and believes that Islam is a complete way of life and so has prescriptions for all aspects of life, Wahhabism is quite strict in what it considers Islamic behaviour. The Saudi Royal family has a long history with Wahhabism.

A key figure of Wahhabism in Sudan was Hassan al-Turabi. Saudi provided funding for the Muslim Brotherhood, whose local leader, Hassan al-Turabi, enjoyed "close relations" with "some of the more conservative members of the Saudi royal family."

Hassan al-Turabi and his National Islamic Front grew in influence and in 1989 a coup d'état by Omar al-Bashir against an elected government negotiating to end the war with the animist and Christian South established Sudan as the first Sunni Islamist state. Al-Turabi became the "power behind the throne" of the al-Bashir government from 1989 to 1999. In 1999 Turabi and his allies were expelled from power. The protest of 2019 has resulted in the ‘demise’ of the National Islamic Front. In the seat of power, but they may be active “underground”.
Wahhabism is known for being an intolerant and aggressive form of Islam and has been blamed for links to global terrorist organizations. However, some observers claim that political, not religious, ideology is to blame for violent action.

How Can We Pray?

Wahhabis are very influential and well-resourced, making their movement seem bigger than it is. Pray for Muslims who live unwillingly under the burden of Wahhabism.

Wahhabis avoid association with non-Wahhabis, making it very difficult to build relationships with them. Pray that God will speak to them in dreams and visions and give them opportunities to meet followers of Christ.

Wahhabis are included in God’s promises to the children of Abraham that Paul writes about in Galatians 3. Pray that they would come into their inheritance as God’s children.

Day 7
The Beja and Folk Islam
The Beja are a group of nomadic shepherds who live scattered across the desert regions of Sudan, Egypt and Eritrea. The Beja are an important people group and represent the largest non-Arabic ethnic group between the Nile River and the Red Sea. They are an assertive people with small, strong, wiry frames, long noses and oval faces.

What Are Their Beliefs?
Virtually all of the Beja are Muslims; however, they practice what is known as "folk Islam." Their beliefs are interwoven with a rich variety of traditional beliefs. For example, they believe that men have the power to curse others by giving them the "evil eye." They also believe in wicked jinnis (spirits capable of taking on animal forms) and other invisible spirits. They believe that evil spirits can cause sickness, madness and accidents. They have adopted many Islamic practices such as repeating prayers, but these prayers are not largely understood.

How Can We Pray?
There are only a small handful of Beja believers. Evangelistic tools, added laborers and increased intercession are the keys to reaching them with the Gospel of Christ.

“All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord and shall glorify Your name. For You are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God.” Psalm 86: 9-10

Ask God to raise up prayer teams that will break up the ground through worship and intercession.
Ask the Holy Spirit to grant favour to missions’ agencies currently ministering to the Beja.
Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the people toward Christians so that they will be receptive to the Gospel.
Ask the Lord to raise up strong fellowships of believers among the Beja.
See the, which has a short video on the Beja people.

Day 8
East Africa (Part 1)
Tourist destinations and pockets of extreme violence.
Modern cities and rural villages.
Christianity accepted and Christianity banned.
East Africa is immensely diverse. Yet one thing is the same across the region: Jesus is the answer to every East African's greatest need.
Islam is on the rise. It claims to have the answers they seek.
But Jesus alone is the way, the truth and the life for every East African.

Percentages vary widely: Muslims make up 11% in Kenya, 14% in Uganda, 34% in Ethiopia, 35% in Tanzania, 97% in Sudan and 99.8% in Somalia. Though its growth is not as fast as claimed by its adherents, Muslims are increasingly occupying key government positions. They also are deeply invested in transportation and shipping industries.

How Can We Pray?
May your love be multiplied in this region.
May your peace be poured out in this region.
May mercy be lavished on this region.

“I revealed Myself to those who did not ask for Me; I was found by those who did not seek Me. To a nation that did not call My name, I said, ‘Here I am! Here I am!’” Isaiah 65:1

Day 9
East Africa (Part 2)
What is Islam Like in East Africa?
The moderate Shafi school of Sharia law dominates in East Africa and is strongly applied in Somalia. Sudan follows the stricter Maliki Sharia law.

There are minority groups of non-Sunnis in capitals and in Zanzibar, off the Tanzanian coast: the Ibadi and the Ismaili and Twelver Shias.
Three forms of Islam have co-existed well for centuries: classical Islam (following Shafi Sharia law), Sufism and Swahili folk Islamic practices.

The conservative Qadiriyya Sufi brotherhood and the North-African Shadhiliyya Sufi brotherhood have been dominant. Both were instrumental in spreading Islam widely following the European colonial occupation.

The Somali al-Shabab and other jihadists are in violent conflict with all three traditional Muslim streams and especially with Christianity. Sufism has almost been wiped out in Somalia.

What is God Doing in East Africa?
Christianity makes up 40% of greater East Africa, yet large buildings and high attendance camouflage a superficiality caused by foreign ‘health, wealth and prosperity’ teaching on TV and in megachurches. The most urgent need is for Biblical discipleship of the younger generation.

Christianity is growing, even secretly in Somalia, but so are trends towards westernization and individualization advocated by American televangelists. Expatriate missionary status varies from acceptance in Kenya to restrictions in Tanzania, South Sudan and Ethiopia to a total ban in Sudan, Somalia and Eritrea.

TV, radio and internet evangelists are free to preach and vibrant local churches evangelize in English as well as in trade and mother-tongue languages. Persecution of those coming to Christ out of Islam varies widely, ranging from violence in Somalia, to community rejection in Tanzania, to intense disapproval in Kenyan or Ethiopian cities.

Only the Sudanese and Somalian governments actively persecute converts. Several nations, seeking to promote tolerance and pluralism, forbid the volatile practice of religious census-taking.

With the change of government in Sudan, we are looking to see what the new government’s policy will be regarding converts from Islam.

How Can We Pray?
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

Use the above Scripture as we:
Pray for deliverance from the tight grip of violence, abuse and rampant fear.
Pray for peace and stability in the region that allows more people to hear about Jesus.
Pray for sheiks and imams to follow Jesus and lead their communities to do the same.

Day 10
“Look at the nations and watch and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” Habakkuk 1:5

The Prophet is crying out to God for an answer to all the trouble he sees before him, he is pleading with God for justice when all he sees is injustice and violence. The name Habakkuk is derived from the Hebrew verb “embrace.” His name probably means, “He Who Embraces” or “He Who Clings.” And reading further it is as though the trouble that Habakkuk sees ‘clings’ to him and almost weighs him down.

BUT GOD! Through facing and grappling with tough questions Habakkuk comes to a firm faith.

Years ago at a Sudan Prayer weekend this Scripture from Habakkuk 1:5 was a Scripture we read and it was as though God was giving us a promise for Sudan.

We have seen the overthrow of Omar al-Bashir in April 2019! This in itself is something we never could have imagine would happen but it did. We have seen General al Bhuran meet with an Israeli Prime Minister in Uganda - another event we could never have imagined.

What else will we believe for in Sudan? Muslim’s coming to faith? Is that so impossible?
With God, all things are possible. And He said: “You will see things in your days you never believed possible!”

How Can We Pray?
Pray for God, Adonai, The Lord of lords to reveal Himself to Muslims fasting during this time. May the Holy Spirit reveal the Truth of who Yeshua/Jesus/Isa is to them as they pray and seek the Truth
They seek the “straight path”: Pray for Muslims to find Isa who is the “Way, the Truth and the Life,” the Only Way to the Father.
Pray for us to believe God Adonai will do more than we are able to believe possible. Pray our faith will increase in Him and believe that Muslims to faith! “Lord, we Believe!”

Day 11
Cush shall hasten to stretch out her hands to God Psalm 68:31

Sudan has a very long and complicated history, influenced by cultures from the north, south, east and west. Sudanese Arabs (population est. 43 million) include city dwellers, rural farmers and pastoral nomads. Most live close to the Nile River, Sudan’s most distinct physical feature, whose two major tributaries converge in the capital, Khartoum.

The significance of the strong, traditional tribal system decreases the closer one gets to urban areas. Sudanese Arabic is the primary language for government, business, education and the arts.

Islam arrived with the Arabs in the 7th century. “Sudan” stems from the Arabic word for “black.” The Arabization and Islamization of Sudan over the centuries has created an identity crisis among both Arab Africans and Black Africans.

Sunni Muslims, the majority, are often organized into religious “brotherhoods” with strong Sufi (mystical) influences. Holy men and women are important figures. Pre-Islamic beliefs in spirits and magic continue to influence the daily practice of Islam.

The political organization known as the “Muslim Brotherhood” (originating in Egypt) was established in Sudan in the 1960s and heavily influenced the government under the brutal dictatorship of Omar al Bashir from 1989 to 2019.

How Can We Pray?
Pray that all unreached people groups across Sudan would have access to the truth, the life, the hope and the joy that are only available through Jesus Christ.
Pray for strong believers to rise up from among the Sudanese Arabs. See

Day 12
Sudanese Arabs
People are tired of the fighting. Few trust each other. Many live without hope. Most simply want to live life in peace, work, get married, have children and earn enough to feed their families.

Sudan remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Access to clean water and decent health care is very limited. Young men who want to get married lack the resources to provide a dowry.

Sudanese who claim direct Arab ancestry have an advantage over Black Africans who have been “grafted in” as Arabs through intermarriage and/or conversion to Islam. This “Arab racial supremacy” is, in part, tied to the history of slavery in the country and generates deep resentment.

Various conflicts have impacted Sudan for centuries. South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011 and the fight over territory and lucrative southern oil reserves rages on. The Sudanese are also wrestling to create a new identity and government infrastructure since the 2019 ouster of Omar al Bashir.

How Can We Pray?
Godly leadership — that God would position righteous people in power during this government transition.
Believers in Sudan — that they would be strengthened to act as ambassadors of Christ, to carry His peace in the midst of this crisis.
Thank you for joining us in prayer for Sudan. We know that Jesus is moving because you prayed.

Day 13
Sudanese Arabs – What is God Doing Among Sudanese Arabs?
Christians in Sudan have suffered greatly, especially over the past 30 years, as the state implemented Sharia law, terrorized believers, confiscated church properties and forbade the distribution of Christian literature. Most foreign Christian missionaries and organizations were expelled after the establishment of South Sudan in 2011. (The “exodus” from Sudan during 2012-2013 of many workers)

Since al Bashir’s ouster, the new Minister of Religious Affairs has promised that confiscated lands and properties would be returned to churches and that Christians would be guaranteed freedom of worship. Christmas was declared a public holiday in 2019 and believers marched in the streets singing and chanting their praises to God! They are cautiously optimistic about the future. However, while the state may no longer officially persecute Christians, their family and friends most likely will. (converts)

House church fellowships are growing along with the national churches. There is a renewed conviction that Sudanese Arabs will be reached by Sudanese believers. These fellowships need discipleship and leadership development, especially in areas of personal holiness. The New Testament is available in Sudanese Arabic, as are the Jesus film and other media; however, more internet and radio broadcast resources are needed to reach and teach oral learners.

Jesus told His disciples: “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Luke 10:1-3

How Can We Pray?
Pray that believers will see the hearts among every Sudanese Arab that is ready to hear and respond to the Gospel (John 4:35).
Pray that the Lord will help the Body of Christ to labour together in the unity of the Spirit to bring good news where it’s never been heard before in Sudan (1 Cor. 3:9).
Pray that the Lord of the Harvest will send labourers from the Sudanese Church to reach those among them who do not know the Saviour! (Luke 10:2).

Day 14
Muslim Background Believers (MBB’s)
Becoming a Christian in the Muslim world is a costly choice. MBBs face isolation and shame, often leading to financial hardships and in areas where extremists are, physical injuries and even death. When officials or secret police discover MBBs’ places of gathering and worship, they often destroy any means of coming together to be the church and, in turn, prevent the encouragement that comes from worshiping with a body of believers of one mind and heart.

How Can We Pray?
Today we want to pray for MBB’s.
Pray for MBBs who have nowhere to gather for church and experience fellowship. In the Middle East and North Africa, MBBs there have hardly any places to publicly gather and worship as a church body. Even in Algeria, one of the more “relaxed” areas, believers still face great persecution and discrimination. The growing house church movement is gaining the attention of governments in these regions, fueling raids on churches in an attempt to keep believers in isolation.

“For where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I among them.” Matt. 18:20.

Pray that MBB’s will be willing to share the Gospel where they live. It can mean persecution, imprisonment, even death for them. But they are the ones “on the ground” where many of us cannot be. Pray for wisdom and discernment and receptive hearts.
Pray for a growing dissatisfaction in the lives of Muslims in Sudan and for believers to reach out to them with the message of the “Way, the Truth and the Life” of Yeshua/Jesus, the Messiah!

Day 15
The Muslim Brotherhood
The Muslim Brotherhood is considered one of the oldest and most influential modern Islamic movements. Founded in 1928 by an Egyptian schoolteacher, the group sees Islam as a means for personal and social improvement and is widely involved in charitable works.

The Muslim Brotherhood spread rapidly around the Arab world and became largely political in that region early on, calling for the establishment of Islamic states based on Islamic law and for the reform of existing political systems. In the 1950s, the group was recognized in parts of the Arab region as a threat, causing many members to flee to Europe. In Europe, the Brotherhood influenced the formation of other organizations to represent local Muslim communities and to advocate for causes of interest to them.

Some analysts believe the movement is in crisis in the Arab states and particularly in Egypt, with conflict between older and younger members over ideological and strategic priorities creating greater uncertainty about its present aims and activities.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a controversial movement. It claims to be a peaceful, democratic organization that condemns violence. It is considered a terrorist organization by a few Arab nations and Russia, but this designation is opposed by several human rights groups. They are considered too radical by some and not radical enough by others. Since the movement is large and loosely organized and has many affiliates, it is likely that all of the above could be found within it.

How Can We Pray?
Pray for members of the Muslim Brotherhood who have influence in Arab nations, that they would use their influence to promote peace, freedom and the well-being of their communities.
Pray for Muslims who are motivated by their ideology to do good works, that they will be able to make a positive difference in their communities.
One of the Muslim Brotherhood’s most popular slogans is “Islam is the solution”. Pray that its members would explore another way, Jesus. (John 14:6).

Day 16
The Muslim Brotherhood is considered one of the oldest and most influential modern Islamic movements. Founded in 1928 by an Egyptian schoolteacher, the group sees Islam as a means for personal and social improvement and is widely involved in charitable works.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a controversial movement. It claims itself to be a peaceful, democratic organization which condemns violence. Yet it is considered a terrorist organization by a few Arab nations and Russia, though this designation is opposed by several human rights groups. They are considered too radical by some and not radical enough by others. Since the organization is large, loosely organized and has many affiliates, it is likely that all of the above could be found within it.

Omar al Bashir had strong links with the Muslim Brotherhood. (It was after a visit of this organization in 2012 that there was increased persecution of believers in Sudan and the forced exodus of many “workers.”)

How Can We Pray?
Pray for members of the Muslim Brotherhood would earnestly seek the Prince of Peace and for them to have visions and dreams during this time of fasting.
One of the Muslim Brotherhood’s most popular slogans is “Islam is the solution.” Pray that its members would explore another way, in Jesus. (John 14:6).

For your glory and the salvation of many Muslims!
