How to cover every prayer slot of the
30 days of Ramadan

Once you have your Ramadan Landing Page launched you are ready to start spreading the word and mobilizing people to commit to pray for the Muslim country, city, or people group God has put on your heart. 

The folks at Pray4Tunisia who used this tool to cover Tunisia in 24/7 prayer for the last 4 years found that sending emails to their email list of prayer partners is an important step. However, just sending a few emails, in their experience, is not sufficient to get them to 100% coverage. They reach out to pastors, missionaries in the country, and friends who use their respective networks to get people to sign up to pray. 

The simplest way to cover 24/7 prayer is to find 96 people who will pray each 15 minute time slot of the day every day. Pray4Tunisia’s 24/7 prayer campaigns in the past often involved around 200 people. Several organizations work together to mobilize people to the Ramadan Landing Page. The people praying get to pick when they want to pray. Your only job is to encourage people to pray and invite others and point them all to your Ramadan Landing Page.

You may need to think creatively, especially for some time slots. One year a friend of the network who worked in a prison ministry got all of the men he disciples in prison to sign up for several of the middle-of-the-night time slots. The more international your list of prayer partners are, the easier it will be to cover all of the 24/7 slots because the 2AM slot where you live, could be 8AM where someone else lives.

You will see at the top of your Ramadan Landing Page that there is now a language selector. So far, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and English translations are available for the Ramadan Landing Page and the Prayer Campaign Tool.

If you would like your landing page and prayer campaign tool to be translated into a different language than those that are currently available you can click the Add a Translation button to get started. 

POEditor is a tool we use to manage translations. It has many strengths. One of the challenges, however, is that it sometimes makes it difficult to understand what the context is for the terms being translated. Click the Prayer Campaign Content button on the right to help translators understand the context of the content.

The tool is built in Disciple.Tools – a software for disciple making movements.

Prayer Champion:

You! The person who has a heart for seeing a disciple making movement among Muslims and has the persistence to identify and mobilize at least 96 intercessors to pray in 15-minute increments around the clock.
