Earning merit

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”Muslim

Ramadan begins this month. For four weeks Muslims in Gujarat, and around the world, will fast from sunrise to sunset and then break the fast each day with a big family meal. They do this in order to earn merit with God. Striving to reach heaven, they believe their good deeds are worth more and their prayers are of greater value during this month. Please pray that in this time of heightened spiritual awareness, the Spirit of God will move among them in a powerful way, overcoming the spirit of darkness that blinds them to the truth of the Gospel.
