Some Muslim kids are happy when they get old enough to fast like adults for Ramadan. They enjoy being part of the Muslim community. Adil, a 16-year-old Muslim in America, told a VOM contact how he feels during Ramadan. “Everyone comes together to celebrate,” Adil said. “I live close to the mosque, so I can walk there. It makes me feel so good to see the children playing outside and everyone gathered at the mosque. It is really a feeling of unity with my Muslim brothers and sisters.” (A mosque is a building where Muslims gather and worship.)
Find the verses in John 17 that tell us how Jesus prayed for the unity of Christians. Many Christians around the world pray for Muslims during Ramadan. In unity with these Christians, pray for Muslims to accept the salvation that Jesus offers.
