February 11, 1995
The Southern Baptist Convention is participating in Islam’s holiest month by encouraging its members to pray for Muslims.
To pray for Muslims to become Christians.
A joint task force of the denomination’s Home Mission Board and Foreign Mission Board is urging the nation’s Southern Baptists to set aside 1995 as the “Year of Prayer for Muslim Peoples.”
The mission agencies are asking Southern Baptists to pray each day of Ramadan, which runs from Feb. 1 to March 3, that Muslims will hear and respond to the Christian Gospel.
