Clothespin Magnet Prayer Reminder

Cut out small photos from this website or The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter. You can glue the photos to frames made of cardboard or cardstock, write the name of a persecuted Christian or a country where Christians are persecuted on a piece of thick paper or cardstock, or make a flag of a country. Fasten the items with the clothespin.

Technology, Prayer, and Ramadan

Muslims can buy special watches or computer software to remind them of the exact times for their five daily prayers. Or they can arrange to have reminders sent to a cell phone or an email address.

“Qibla” is an Arabic word that refers to the direction Muslims must face while praying. Muhammad taught that Muslims must pray toward Mecca. Some hotels that serve Muslim customers have qibla markers in their guest rooms to show the correct direction to face. TV screens on Saudi Arabia Airlines planes show qibla compasses for passengers.

In countries where many Muslims live, sunset and sunrise times may appear on TV during Ramadan or be announced by a siren.
