Pray for Hui during Ramadan

Since 2012, Pray for the Hui has been encouraging Christians to pray for Chinese Muslims. The website includes dozens of blogs and prayer guides, which continue to be valuable resources to anyone who is interested in learning about and praying for these unreached people groups. Often believers desire to pray for the nations but feel disconnected or unsure of how to start. Those who have never been to western China can begin to pray powerfully for these people groups through the eye-opening pictures, videos, and stories on this website.

Each year, Pray for the Hui invites believers around the world to pray daily for Chinese Muslims during Ramadan. This annual prayer initiative provides an opportunity to join with thousands of others who have a heart for Chinese Muslims, including missionaries and church planters who are working to share the gospel with these people groups.

Why Pray for Chinese Muslims During Ramadan?

Ramadan is the most important month in the Islamic calendar. During these thirty days, Muslims will focus their attention on following what they believe to be the true religion as best as they can. This means fasting each day of Ramadan and praying five times a day. While Chinese Muslims deliberately seek to earn God’s favor through practicing Islam this month, there is a spiritual war raging. As Christ’s church, we engage in this battle through prayer. Though their hearts desire to submit to God and receive his blessing, Chinese Muslims have been taught that the answer is in rituals, not in the grace of Jesus Christ freely given to sinners who repent and believe. Please join in this battle of prayer.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4).

Ramadan Prayer Resources

Pray for the Hui will publish prayer guides, new blogs, and social media feed during Ramadan, which is March 10 through April 9. This year’s Ramadan prayer plan will highlight four specific locations and communities. We will pray for the Hui of Ningxia, the Dongxiang of Gansu, the Salar of Qinghai, and the Dungan of Kyrgyzstan. Download and print a prayer guide or follow on Facebook to pray daily during Ramadan for Chinese Muslim people.
